Responsibility of Elders by John Carlson
As an octogenarian I wonder if I have a Responsibility to society.
It seems to me that I do.
As an observer of life I wonder if other folks feel a responsibility to society. It seems to me many don’t.
It would appear that the work ethic Many inherited growing up has of late fallen prey to the welfare system.
So. Just what is responsibility?
‘Tis a moral obligation to behave correctly toward or in respect to society.
Individuals have responsibility to control personal behavior, Assume civic duty as a citizen to pay taxes and vote.
Elders will do well to keep themselves physically and mentally fit and prepare a will, preplan funeral and burial arrangements.
Society will be the benefactor if elders mingle with generations, share their acquire knowledge and exercise the Golden Rule.
And…Oh yes…we all must be responsible to not let aging get us down.
It’s too hard to get back up.
