Reminds me of a friend who works as a volunteer in Ren Ci in the past.NorthernLights said:Thanks.
I wonder what happened to the sons and daughters of these poor old men. I see almost them every week, at the same spot and lie there, waiting.
It's heart-wrenching people forget present development and advancement of the wealth and structure of the society we live in today has everything to do with the effort these people made when they were young.
Now they seemed forgotten, while young people have fun.
Already heard so many stories of these old folks got abandoned by their children. Left to be forgotten........Ah_Seng said:

She told me of an old lady, whose sons and daughters are all docs and lawyers, yet dumped her in Ren Ci and cease to visit her after a while. Really angry to hear that.

It's not right to shoot someone and put across a statement without proof. you're almost (if not) doing photojournalism, even if it may be painfully obvious to you & others what their situation is, you have no right to infer by basing on other instances. You may be right about their lives afterall, but the process in doing so is wrong.
i'm refering to post #4. Well, on 2nd look it's not a claim by Northernlights, but that post is setting the tone of the images and without clarification of reality that's just not right.cyber_m0nkey said:If you're referring to "seemed forgotten" then that is an observation not a claim or statement or even a judgement, just an observation.....
