India, Day 3, again.
We spent time in the morning with the residents of the Agape Old Age Home. The residents are being added to the NoChild sponsorship lists. We are all privy to the fact that children all over the world are being thrown out, neglected, abused and just let to end for themselves, but rarely do we hear about what happens to the elderly around the world. For the same reasons that the kids are left or brought to CEM, so are the elderly. I did not expect that it would be so hard for me to hear about their stories. The worn and wrinkled faces depicted a much harsher reality than most people can empathize with. One cannot even begin to guess their ages. Most are far younger than you would think. And just like the children, they long to be seen, heard and loved.
I am guessing its frowned upon to have favorites, but this one? My favorite!!!!
