|strange how "civilized" society views its elderly ... native Americans respected the wisdom of the elderly ... in those cultures the elderly were the main caretakers of children, for they have patience and knowledge while the parents were out hunting and gathering ...
sad, effective poem, Felix ...

|My oldest duaghter has spent 10 years working in facilities like this, loving, and caring for all the residents, and it is more than heartbreaking. I Would never do this to my elderly parents, unless they had to be medically cared for daily through serious illness, and then they wouldnt be left to stare into space...As a kid I would always go to my grandies on school breaks, they lived independant right up till the last 3 years of His life, and it worked pretty well, sadly not all are so fortunate. For many, Death is a kind release. Those who jokingly say, "be good to your children, they will chose ur retirement village" hmmm it's no joke, Ty Fee for bringing to light one of societies greatest shame!!

|This I can feel quite strongly, even though my age is not yet the time to go into a "home", because I used to drive for a transport service & see some folks like these u speak of...at the time I didn't think anything of it, but as I get older I feel so badly for those folks...my friend Rene has an aunt in her nineties that the family took away from Rene and placed in a NH and she is now so lonely & ready for death...such a sad write this one is, Fee...but thank you for writing it...it needs to be said and viewed...e|

|Fee: She reminds me of a lady I wrote a poem about who also was left behind and cried everyday for her family to come and visit and show her compassion. Thank you for sharing this and reminding all of us the importance of family even when we age. Compassion, respect and dignity is all we ask for when we age.
God Bless You,
