Do Elder People Face Violence? What is Geriatric?
The best ever gift we all ever have received is “parents” a true blessing from God above. It is rightly said that God cannot be present everywhere, so he sent parents for us. Blessed is the one who has parents by their side to talk, share, care, love, concern, protect, listen, and entertain us with our own talks. A big thanks to the parents.
Childhood was the lesson for us to know how one should treat each other. As the best things or say all things we capture are at that very age where we see our parents taking care of us loving, feeding, and never letting us fall apart.
The struggle which they go through is, ‘I may say is pure love’. Whatever our fulfillment and requirements we demand or had without hesitation it was served in front of us. Truly said we are the reflection of our parents. We inherit qualities from them and carry forward in our life treating the same way as we are taught.
