Chinese traditional virtue 中国传统美德
From the cartoon given above, we can observe that there are two people who show love with each other. On the left picture, thirty years ago, with a happy smile on her face, the beautiful young mother was holding his daughter’s hand. On the right picture, with her mother becoming old, the little girl grows up , she holds her mother tightly. Thirty years past, but a happy and warm smile never disappears. The caption below reads, “holding together.”
We learn from the cartoon that love between parents and children should be mutual and constant. Our parents not only give us life, but also give us unselfish and generous love when we grow up. They provide us with the best things, fill all of our needs and protect us from being hurt. When they grow old, we should also unreservedly repay their love. Old parents are not as healthy as when they were young, inconvenience also abounds in their love, they undoutedly need our care and love, just as when we were young and little. Although sometimes they tell us, “I am fine, do not worry about me.” Is that true? No! In effect, they just don’t want to bring us extra trouble and burden !
Although the pace of modern life is quickening and the competition is becoming fiercer. No matter how busy we are, we young people should also spare some time to accompany our old parents, help them escape from loneliness and listen to their inner voice. Taking care of old people is not so much Chinese traditional virtue as our basic obligation. By the way, do you remember how long you haven’t called your parents or eaten with them ? (284words)
