Grandparents Day

The purpose of the Grandparent's Day was beautifully summarized in the proclamation: "The elders of each family have the responsibility for setting the moral tone for the family and for passing on the traditional values of our Nation to their children and grandchildren. They bore the hardships and made the sacrifices that produced much of the progress and comfort we enjoy today." (Jimmy Carter, President of the United States of America, Proclamation 4580 - National Grandparents Day, 1978 August 3, 1978).
