Let us not be quick to judge a society or community guilty of not taking care of the less privileged…

What’s interesting to note too is what decisions had these aged made in the past that landed them where they are now?

Is the ever fast moving society/economy to be blamed or bad decisions they made?

How about rags-to-riches story? what about riches-to-rags?

I am not sure if the society at large, affluent or poor should bear bulk of the blame.

Photographs taken do tell a thousand words, but I do know of some cleaners who stay in Terraced houses who REFUSED to stop working even though they can afford not to. Maybe they are the privileged few that are rare, but still it tells of another story rarely told.

Let us not be quick to judge a society or community guilty of not taking care of the less privileged, sometimes or to me at least, a lot got to do with the decisions these individuals took that shaped their current status.

Go in with an open eyes, and heart may I add. Never you know that old man who clears the plate on your table, used to be the boss of the very coffeeshop you dinning in, punted all his wealth away on damsel(s) in one of the Riau Island. Or the old granny who served you the soya milk who insisted on working, fighting and keeping dementia at bay.

I am sincerely not sure anymore. Things are not always what they seem to be, at least not with our naked eyes….
