I was shocked when I was watching a documentary show last night. It is a public service show where they help those people who is in need. In the show, there was an old lady who is locked up beside their house. And the one who locked her up is her own daughter and son-in-law. How inhuman they are to do that to their mother. They beat her when she is noisy and if they want her to sleep. I felt like crying while watching the show because no one deserves to be treated that way. Aside from she is their mother, she is also human that deserves some respect. The good thing is there is one concerned citizen who called the authority to help the old lady. They succeeded of getting her from being locked up and now she is under the custody of a charitable institution. An institution for aged person who are abandoned by their family.
Being old is never a sin, we all go there in due time and we do want to be treated as human. With love and respect that is what we needed when we grow old. I just hope that what they did to their mother wont happens to them soon by their own kids.
For me, our parents are gift from God to us. They are the reason why we are here on earth and enjoying the gift of life. No matter how good and bad our parents are, they are still our parents. Sometimes we may think that if only we can choose what kind of parents we want. But it is impossible for only God knows and decide what is best for us. God gave us the kind of parents that we deserve and give us this kind of parents for a reason. To all of us , HONOR THY PARENTS for they are the gifts from God to us. To teach us and mold us into a better person.
