There’s plenty of videos online with teens holding up signs, trying to get some type of point across.
However, it’s not too often we see it done with senior citizens.
Unfortunately, in this day and age many seniors live alone and on little income. They are ignored and neglected by their families and they watch their friends die one at a time.
What do you see when you look at them? Do we see someone who walks too slow? Do we see someone who needs help getting around and seems to have a hard time doing the basics required life? Maybe we get impatient and try to do things for them. Sometimes where in such a hurry, we forget they are people too.
When we take the time to speak to seniors in our life and listen to their stories, we find entire worlds we know little of. We find people who fought in World War II. We find men and women who helped win that war with great sacrifice. These people can tell you stories of a time you will never know of.
So please, next time you see a senior citizen, help them out. Be kind and open doors, say hello and be sure to smile. Watch this amazing video and share with your friends!
