Stop Elderly Abuse
In every elderly person’s life, there will come a time when someone will do them wrong. It is a statistical fact if you look at the website for Adult Protective Services or other similar sites. Each state has their own adult services. The statistics are astounding and it is truly sad. How would you feel if your mom, dad, grandparents, or other family members were being hurt by another family member? It happens on a daily basis. Trust turns to hardships and love turns to tears. As a society we allow it to happen. Isn’t it time we stand up for those who are unable to stand up for themselves? Isn’t it time that we start protecting those who gave us life and lived long before we were born? I say, “YES”, though I never realized it was a potential issue until it happened in my own sordid, spoiled, loser family.
