Once You've Withstood the Test of Time

Today is my Grandmother's Birthday. She is, well, old. She may not know how to set up her own facebook account, text, or add names to her phone contacts, but she witnessed Pearl Harbor, the Kennedy Assasination and fall of the Berlin Wall. It is for this reason that I believe that those among us who qualify for the Senior Citizen discount, deserve our utmost respect and love. It doesn't matter if they are grumpy or happy natured, they have withstood the test of time and learned valuable lessons along the way. There is so much we can learn from them, and at this time in their lives, while their friends and lovers are coming to the end of their lives, they are lonely. So, today, on behalf of my grandmother, hug your grandparent, or senior citizen neighbor, tell them you love them and appreciate them and see what you can learn from them.

Whaddya think?
