Join our Lenten Campaign 2024.
The centenarian population has dramatically increased in the U.S. in the past few decades, but living to see your 100th birthday is still quite the feat. In Barbados, they are celebrating centenarian Bajans with a limited edition postage stamp collection, the largest collection they have yet to release.
Including both currently alive and deceased citizens, the collection includes 27 stamps representing citizens ranging in age from 100 to over 110 years old.
With so many elderly citizens forgotten and isolated in our society, this tribute is an excellent example of how cultures ought to respect those who have contributed to the world in which we now live.
You can see some of the stamps here.
