These words “DON’T BE CRUEL” are glaring at you now, peeps.
I am appalled by a recent spate of news pertaining an elderly CHINESE couple who are currently surviving at wit’s end. Their two ungrateful sons, both in their 30′s threw them away, like dirty linen, for whatever reasons. Guess they don’t need their parents anymore. An extremely cruel thing, shirking duties specially when sick parents are in the throes of their twilight years. Heaven forbid.
What price FILIAL PIETY? We should at all times, respect, obey and care for our aging parents. Without our mums and dads, where would all of us be today? Blood is thicker than water.
When we were young and growing, we did rely on our parents for guidance, money, emotional support, etcetera. THIS ROLE SHOULD BE REVERSED once we have attained adult status and when our parents are getting on in years.
No one stays young and beautiful forever, man. Do bad things, you will get your just deserts when it’s your turn to be old. No one can escape old age.
