Today is National Senior Citizens Day and Aging Is Changing

August 21 is National Senior Citizens Day — a day to honor seniors and celebrate their achievements.

In 1988, President Ronald Regan proclaimed the observance, saying: "For all they have achieved throughout life and for all they continue to accomplish, we owe older citizens our thanks and a heartfelt salute. We can best demonstrate our gratitude and esteem by making sure that our communities are good places in which to mature and grow older."

Amen.  If you’re a senior citizen, enjoy your day.  If you’re not yet a member of the senior ranks, show your appreciation.  And read this Huffington Post article: 5 Amazing Seniors Busting Every Aging Stereotype.  Aging is changing.
