Day 11 of "March Photo A Day Challenge" : Someone You Talked To Today
Sister and BIL are here for a visit... two of the guys I talked to today. Although this photograph was taken during one of their previous visits.
Actually, one of my uncles also dropped in unexpectedly. And the icing on the cake: the maid decided to do a disappearing act... yet again!
Crazy people... these maids! Aren't they? No discipline. No time table. And daily drama of husband beating them up after getting drunk. But they won't leave their husband and move out on their own. Despite the fact that, apparently, they are the only ones earning in their family.
(I use "apparently" above, because that's what they say. I haven't really gone to their home and actually verified it with my own eyes.)
Oh and they pass on the same lifestyle habits to their children. While their daughters (even 7-8 year-old ones) accompany them to work, their sons bunk school and wander around with other boys, eventually growing up into unskilled, unqualified, and extremely frustrated adults, who, in turn, get drunk and beat up their own wife!
Try as I might, I canNOT sympathize with them. Ever. Neither can I ever buy their big excuse of "poverty". Poor or rich, there is not a single person on this planet who doesn't have problems in life. But the world doesn't stop for anyone. God helps only those who help themselves. If we are not willing to change, then why should the situations around us change!
This is my 11th post for NaBloPoMo March 2012.
