National Senior Citizen’s Day- #WiggleWrites #MyFriendAlexa

National Senior Citizen's Day

National Senior Citizen’s day recently, I learned about a special day which is celebrated every year on 21st August.
One who worked for us full life and at this age when they called Senior Citizens to need more care and help.

To my surprise, we all start sharing about valentine’s day, father’s day, and all other days week or months before on social media. I felt bad for myself too that I didn’t even know about this day.

When did Senior Citizen’s day start?

In 1990, December 14th it was first proclaimed by the General Assembly of the United Nations. Officially founded by Ronald Reagan the 40th President of the United States.

“For all that, they have achieved throughout their lives and for all that they continue to do, we owe our gratitude and sincere greetings to our senior citizens. We can show our gratitude and appreciation better by making sure our communities are good places. Age and maturity, places where older people can participate as much as possible and find the encouragement, acceptance, support and services they need to continue living a life of independence and dignity.

Ronald Reagan said, in his Presidential Proclamation

Why important to celebrate?

This day is usually celebrated to spread awareness about the issues and factors that really affect our beloved older people. Not only this, but it is also a day to value and recognize of these elder people and acknowledge them for their all hard work towards their life, home, and society

I feel blessed and happy when I see myself surrounded by these more knowledgeable people who learned from their life experiences.

I feel disappointed that I was not aware of this day but other hand feels happy that blessed with elder people at home. Their presence matters a lot.
