the picture, an old woman in shabby clothes says to her son in the car:
“I havent received support payments from you for more than a year.” The
son responds: “Mom, dont you see that we have just bought a car?”
Sitting besides him is his fat wife holding a pet dog.
This phenomenon is not the least uncommon in todays society.
Parents devote all their money, time and energy into bringing up their
children—they are willing to do everything for their children. But as
for the children, many of them take parents love and sacrifice for
granted. When they grow up, they will have their own jobs and their own
families, and some of them will find all kinds of excuses not to support
their old parents.
The picture above symbolically demonstrates how three sons and a
daughter treat their old and helpless father. They each stand in a
different comer of a football field. The eldest son kicks out the father
while the other children are prepared to ward him off. It is sad to see
none of them is willing to receive and support their father. What it
illustrates is a common phenomenon in today’s society: many grown-up
children refuse to support their aging parents.
亚洲城， In my belief, this unfavorable phenomenon signals the failure of
both school and family education. When some teachers are concentrating
on the performance of children in local, provincial and national
examinations, how can students learn practical skills, responsibility
and gratitude? Parents should let the children get in touch with the
society step by step from a very young age—sending them to study in a
different city is a good choice. Independent life will help them know
the hardship that parents have been through—in this case they are more
likely to make full preparations for the harsh competitions ahead and
stand up to lifes challenges upon graduation. Only in the way can their
education be meaningful and the above annoying scene be
support，所以该句最后可写作“…not to pay support for their old parents”。
While young people enjoy a comfortable life, their parents are
neglected and left in utter poverty, as these elderly people have grown
so physically weak that they no longer have the power to support
themselves. I think these children have gone against their own
conscience and therefore may be put under strong attacks of words and
contempt by us. According to Chinese culture, to respect the old and
love the young are the traditional virtue and to be kind to one’s
parents is the height of it. We owe so much to our parents in the they
not only gave us life but have done much in bringing us up. It is
against nature for us to escape from our responsibility of taking care
of our parents when they are old.
On the contrary, we have the duty to pay back their love by making
their later years enjoyable and happy. With love and respect for the
old, our society will be full of sunshine; Without love and respect for
the old, our society will be dark through.
