Remembering 9/11

Remembering 9/11

“No day shall erase you from the memory of time.”- Virgil Those are the words etched on the walls of the September 11 Memorial Museum in steel recovered from the Twin Towers. Eighteen years ago, our nation suffered a horrific attack in New York City at the World Trade Center site and at the Pentagon, on September 11, 2001. In a terror attack aimed at the symbols of America’s power and prosperity, 2,977 people were killed and over 6,000 were injured. There were no survivors on the hijacked planes and only 20 survivors were pulled out of the flaming rubble. The tragedy is one of the largest losses of life due to a foreign attack on American soil, as well as the greatest loss of rescue personnel (in one incident) in American history.  In remembrance of this tragic day where our nation came together as one, our team at OurSeniors.net would like to take a moment to honor all the victims...

In observance of Memorial Day

In observance of Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day, and we at OurSeniors.net wish each of you a very happy holiday. Today, the 27th of May, the National Memorial Day Parade will be held in Washington DC. In many Florida locations, this will be seen on local TV (2PM Eastern time). If the broadcast is not available in your area, you can catch it live on YouTube at The 2019 National Memorial Day Parade - Live Stream. The link will probably be active for some time after. Memorial Day observances have been held since the years following the Civil War. Hundreds of politicians, clergy and patriots have given speeches on this day, but the finest Memorial Day speech ever delivered may have been given before there even was such an observance. In November of 1863, President Abraham Lincoln traveled to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, to speak at the dedication of the Soldiers National Cemetery, a memorial to the soldiers who fought and died there. Lincoln delivered the greatest...

Spread the Christmas spirit by helping out a senior

Spread the Christmas spirit by helping out a senior

At OurSeniors.net, we like to say that our purpose is to serve the needs of seniors in every way possible.  One of the most basic needs of seniors is to remain connected to others. This is true of all people at any age, but it may be more difficult for seniors. If you are a senior living alone, do not feel like you are the only one! According to the Administration on Aging, an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, about 28% of older adults lived alone in 2017. Today is the day after Christmas; hopefully you have enjoyed a happy and healthy holiday, spent with friends and family. This is the time of year that those connections to others seem especially important. Unfortunately, it is probably true that many of the seniors in our community did not have those opportunities.  Social isolation is one of the most difficult problems faced by our seniors. We wish that we...
