When we pray for long life, we pray to be old and feeble. Old age is a blessing that comes with some disadvantages. These disadvantages affect us in so many different ways. They may affect our mobility, eyesight, hearing and overall health.
This point in a person’s life is when they need love and care the most after childhood, but do they really get this care and love? Some few ones are fortunate to receive this care, unfortunately majority of these elderly do not, they are labeled as witches/wizards and a nuisance. For this reason, they are abused and neglected in one way or the other.
On this journey of life, most people will end up where the elderly are today, that is the cycle of life.
So ask yourself, do you treat the elderly how you want to be treated when you grow old and feeble one day?
