Be Nice To Old People

June 15th


World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.

How sad is that?

That we need a day around the world

To pay attention to the fact that the elderly population

Are at risk


Abuse, Neglect, Exploitation.

That they are hurt

Uncared for when they cannot care for themselves

Stolen from when they are vulnerable

Made to feel obsolete when they should be revered.

Wearing a color on a specific day does not change any of this.


You start by wearing purple because you are made aware.

Once you are aware,

You pay attention.

Once you pay attention

You choose to do nothing

Or you choose

To make a difference

In one elderly person’s life.

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

Be nice to the old people.

Show the next generation how to do it right

Before you are the next old generation.
