A few days ago I was browsing on some of my web mails. I saw one that really caught my attention. The mail was from somebody that is really is close to Bob and I. We love this person dearly and this person I know for sure is totally honest in everything she will say.
Anyway, the neighbor of this person who are elderly died a few weeks ago. I guess it was due to starvation. The woman died first. I guess the husband just lay next to her until he died too. One of the neighbor went to these couple’s house to give something and they found the two of them lying already dead and holding each other. The sad part was these couple had few kids who are professionals, they didn’t even bother to visit or give something to their parents. I was also told that these old couple had one child who lives just a few houses away from them. She didn’t even go or try to see if her parents still have something to eat. Those kids were supported by their parents when they went to school during early days. One of the children was told about the death of their parents she starts sobbing. The neighbor didn’t like it because everybody wonders whats that tears are about. Everybody thinks that she faked her crying. I am really puzzled of what they are acting towards their parents. I am not here to judge, but I grew up in a culture where we have to take care of our elderly parent no matter what. It’s just really a shock to me of how these people handled their parents. For me, my parents don’t have much money but they sacrifice for us to go to school. In return now that my mom is ill I tried to do my share on taking care of her. I’m glad that Bob is so supportive of me on that.
Honestly, I was in tears when I knew about it. I could never imagine treating a human being like that. I hope that the children of these couple will think now what if it’s their turn to get old and their children will treat them that way? What will they feel about it?
What do you think guys? I know not one of us in these group would do something like that.
Take care everyone!
