Senior citizens are incredibly helpful and worthy to society. They’ve lived long, full lives and have a lot of knowledge and advice to offer to the rest of us. As the builders of the society that we currently live in, they know how things are on both sides of the fence, with and without the technological advancements we’re used to today. They were the pioneers of major historical moments, such as the civil rights movements and the moon landing, and they’ve made countless contributions to the fields of science, medicine, sociology, and much more. It is on this day that we show them our respect and appreciation for all that they’ve done and continue to do in our society.
