I don't quite understand the world anymore. Well more of the people than anything else. Maybe everyone has pretty much gone quite mad.
I've always a profound respect for life. Mother Nature and her work. Love. The crazy sensations that you have everyday. I love every single bit of life's treasures and yes.. That include the bad ones. But I guess I don't understand people anymore.
My mother passed away in April 2013, and early in the month of October 2014 I received news that my father has passed away. Now.. I was never closed to any of them. I was raised by 2 grandmothers and they were both equally strict. I learnt manners from young and I understood that if I want to be crappy, I do it outside. Out of mind and out of sight. And don't bring it back home because if my thrashy behavior made news outside, I would be greeting the cane. I never take more than I should and no matter how angry I get, I would never forget my thanks.
Which is why I don't understand people these days. Have everyone just lost their minds and forget their manners? No one says hello anymore, or farewell. Greetings are sacred.. Or perhaps a thing of the past. People no longer shook hands but Facebook IDs. Co-habitation is common ground and no one says a thing and parents they look the other way when their children have done wrong.
Have I missed the memo?
What ever happened to manners? Courtesy? What ever happened to asking a girl's parent's permission before asking her out? What ever happened to taking care of your family? Are they becoming extinct?
Seems like the more smarter people get.. The more stupider they become.
I pray that my children would never suffer such fate. I pray that I will remember to teach them manners and they will instill it in their hearts and souls. I pray that they will remember to be grateful and give their thanks.. And most of all.. I hope they don't forget life and all its treasures.
