Don’t Blame Seniors

Filed under: issues — Tags: , , , , , — paulthinkingoutloud @ 2:48 pm

This was part of a long e-mail FWD I got today…

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 others!!


  1. Damned straight!

  2. Very thought-provoking, Paul.

    I got your email about my blogroll being mainly blogspot people. I’ve never really noticed that. I’m a writer with a blog, instead of a true blogger, so I’m not into all the blog jargon. But your blog is really interesting, and I’ll come back as I can. As it is, I only get about 2 hours a week to read blogs. Hopefully when my kids are out of the house, I’ll have more time to spend on it.

    Hope your day is blessed!
