I Am A Senior Citizen

An email I received (author unknown) made me think about why I support Sarah Palin. It is precisely that she values the things that are important and relate to the values we have held throughout our lives.

Senior citizens are constantly being criticized
for every conceivable deficiency of the modern world,
real or imaginary.
We know we take responsibility
for all we have done and do not blame others. HOWEVER,
upon reflection,
we would like to point out
that 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, < /SPAN> 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!!
And, we do understand the meaning
of patriotism,
and remember those who have fought and died
for our country.
