Day of older persons
Us from childhood taught with reverence and respect for older people. The first of October is a wonderful opportunity to once again show elementary attention and care to give place to public transport, help an old lady cross the road, to call their grandpa and grandma or to do any other act of kindness, because this date is dedicated to the worldwide Day of elderly people.
This day was celebrated in the twentieth century in Europe, and later this tradition has moved to America. Since 1990, this day has become International, and since 1992 he has been celebrated in Russia.
The purpose of celebrating this day is an additional attraction of public attention to the problems and experiences of older people. During his life, they managed to make a significant contribution to the development of our society, which means that they, like anyone else, have the right to fulfil their social needs and individual needs.
Today, for anybody not a secret that in our society, too little attention is being paid to people in old age. They lack basic care and maintenance, economic, political and cultural support. So the Day of the elderly person is bright, emphasizes the need to change such attitude to the elderly.
The first of October in our country is the mass of the events dedicated to the problems of the aged population: the congresses and conferences of political and public organizations, charity concerts, festivals and various other events.
Congratulations, dear seniors! I hope that you will feel needed and loved, and not only on the Day of the elderly person, but in the other days of the year.
