Senior citizens (author unknown)

Note from LuckyLuctor:
Fortunately there are still people of all ages (from all parts of
the world) who believe in these values and strive to live
according to them (and know their national anthem too).
Let's cherish those values!

Senior citizens are constantly being criticized for every
conceivable deficiency of the modern world, real or imaginary.
We know we take responsibility for all we have done and do not
blame others.

HOWEVER, upon reflection, we would like to point out that it was
NOT the senior citizens who took:

The melody out of music,
The pride out of appearance,
The courtesy out of driving,
The romance out of love,
The commitment out of marriage,
The responsibility out of parenthood,
The togetherness out of the family,
The learning out of education,
The service out of patriotism,
The Golden Rule from rulers,
The nativity scene out of cities,
The civility out of behavior,
The refinement out of language,
The dedication out of employment,
The prudence out of spending,
The ambition out of achievement, or,
God out of government and school.

And we certainly are NOT the ones who eliminated patience and
tolerance from personal relationships and interactions with

And, we do understand the meaning of patriotism, and remember
those who have fought and died for our country.

Does anyone under the age of 50 know the lyrics to the Star
Spangled Banner?

Just look at the Seniors with tears in their eyes and pride in
their hearts as they stand at attention with their hand over
their hearts!
