Why National Senior Citizens Day is Important

<div id='' class='matter-item'><h3 id='' class='matter-title'><span class='matter-letter'>A.</span>Senior citizens are a valuable source of wisdom</h3><p id='matters-text'>Older adults have lived through many eras and experienced a wide variety of life experiences. As such, they possess an invaluable knowledge that can teach us about resilience, fortitude, and the importance of cultivating relationships. Listening to seniors helps us understand the past so that we can create a better future for everyone.</p></div><div id='' class='matter-item'><h3 id='' class='matter-title'><span class='matter-letter'>B.</span>It raises awareness of ageism</h3><p id='' class='matters-text'>Unfortunately, many senior citizens face discrimination from people who view them as less capable because of their age. National Senior Citizens Day is an important reminder that there are no age limits to doing great things or making meaningful contributions to our society. It encourages us to value the opinions and experiences of older adults, rather than pigeonholing them into a certain stereotype.</p></div><div id='' class='matter-item'><h3 id='' class='matter-title'><span class='matter-letter'>C.</span>It highlights the need for inclusive public policies</h3><p  id=''class='matters-text'>As more seniors remain in the workforce longer and continue to actively engage with their communities, it's essential that our public policies reflect this new reality. By celebrating National Senior Citizens Day we are acknowledging the fact that our society is stronger when all generations are included in decision making processes at every level.</p></div>
