Happy New Year from the team at OurSeniors.net Magazine!

Happy New Year from the team at OurSeniors.net Magazine!

This year was something that none of us ever expected. We never experienced a nation-wide shutdown or pandemic. Our lives changed in a variety of ways and life took on a whole new meaning. While it may seem like 2020 was the worst year, a few great things did happen. We took more time to relax and enjoy the little things in life. People took hygiene more seriously. Everyone took a step back from their hectic lives to be with loved ones. The stress of the holidays took a backseat as many of us just stayed home. Health became the biggest priority for everyone. As we reflect on the past year, we are excited for the year ahead as we bring in a fresh perspective. We wish you a Happy New Year and a great 2021 full of peace, happiness and prosperity!...

Let’s Take a Moment to Remember the Attack on Pearl Harbor Today

Let’s Take a Moment to Remember the Attack on Pearl Harbor Today

Today is Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, which is a reminder of the tragedy that happened this day in 1941. Franklin D. Roosevelt said it was “a date which will live in infamy” as the surprise attack by the Japanese Imperial Army caused more than 2,000 people to be killed. Four very important U.S. Navy battleships sank, and four others were damaged along with hundreds of aircraft destroyed or damaged. We would like to remember those who lost their lives, their families and those who lived through the tragedy. It is important to never forget this day as it marked an important event in history that changed the lives of many as it also led to declaring war on Japan and entering WW2. Educate your family members and anyone from younger generations as they may not know the importance of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Point out to them how government buildings and most places that have an American Flag fly them at...
