In a society that some describe a "youth obsessed" Grandparents
Day on Sept. 11, 2016, serves as a reminder to honor the generations that
have gone before. In 1978, the U.S. Congress passed legislation that proclaimed
the first Sunday after Labor Day to be National Grandparents Day.
For this year's Grandparents Day, not only should people reach out
to their own grandparents, but all older adults are encouraged to "share
their wisdom, perspectives and key civic values with young people."
The theme is "Do Something Grand!"
