What is this?

When my sis-in-law emailed me this link to a 5-minute Greek film, I almost missed it. When I finally watched it this morning, gosh, it's a life lesson we all must learn. For all that our parents had done for us, we need to return them the kindness they deserve.

Sad but family cohesion, filial piety are fast eroding in our modern day society. The following are excerpts from an article that tug at my heartstrings whenever I read them :-

当我老了,不再是原来的我。
请理解我,对我有一点耐心。

当我由於双腿疲劳而无法行走时,
请伸出你年轻有力的手搀扶我。
就像你小时候学习走路时,我扶你那样。

当我忽然忘记我们谈话的主题,
请给我一些时间让我回想。
其实对我来说,谈论什麼并不重要,只要你能在一旁听我说,我就很满足。

当你看著老去的我,请不要悲伤。
理解我,支持我,就像你刚才开始学习如何生活时我对你那样。

当初我引导你走上人生路,如今请陪伴我走完最后的路。
给我你的爱和耐心,我会抱以感激的微笑,这微笑中凝结著我对你无限的爱。

GREAT video clip. THANKS for sharing!!! It reminds me of the impatience I had for (usually) my Dad, esp. when I still lived at home. :-((((
