92 Year Old Woman Who Lives On The Mountain Builds Her Own Coffin. Her Reason Will Surely Break Your Heart!
Elder abandonment is a serious problem in our society and many thousands of people every year suffer from the consequences of this issue. Whether it’s neglect, irresponsibility or malicious action, it’s an issue among old people that needs to be addressed.
The effects of abandonment can be devastating. Old people with memory problem or other cognitive impairment could forget who they are, where they belong or even what they need to do. Even if they aren’t suffering from a cognitive issue, the effects of abandonment can lead to extreme sadness or illness.
Here’s the heart breaking story of an old woman who has been left all alone by her children.
A 92-year-old woman lives all by herself in an old house located in the mountain . She is said to have five children. Despite her advance age, the old woman lives alone and does everything. It includes collecting fire woods and cooking meals.
The house she currently lives in is in a terrible condition. The house made out of wood barely has sturdy walls. All of the windows do not have curtains. One could imagine how cold it could get when strong winds blow into the windows and the cracks in the walls
A journalist discovered her residence and interviewed her. When asked what the logs around her yard were for, the old woman replied casually: “I am an old woman. I am already 92 years old. Right now, I am making my own coffin. I collect the logs from the woods at the mountain.”
The old woman then sat near the entrance door after shifting several logs. She then told the journalist her story. She revealed that she actually has three sons and two daughters. They are probably in their 50s and 60s.
She told that all her children are still healthy and strong. But not one of them wanted to stay with her
When the journalist tried to step inside her house, the old woman immediately waived him off and said: “Don’t. Don’t step inside. My house is no longer sturdy as it used to before. It is old.” But after some convincing, the old woman allowed the journalist to come in and see what is inside her house
Immediately after the journalist stepped inside the house, he realized how old and time-worn the house was. All the corners of the house appears torn and damaged. The sight of decaying woods was everywhere.
The house somehow managed to stay erect on the ground. A few several stacked bamboo piles have been made to support the old house’s fragile structure.
The old woman also revealed that there were some kind-hearted people who came to visit her a few days before and gave her some money. Her bed is the old and tattered wooden floor covered with a red comforter. Piles of clothes which she bundles up is used as her pillow
This pot is the only cookware she has in her home.
Although rice pot is dirty and old, she has no choice but to it to cook her food.
The old woman makes sure to never waste any single grain of rice
This old woman still manages to smile despite her hard living condition.
When asked about all of her five children, she told that her eldest son works at a coal mine. While her second son followed his wife and lives with his father in law. However, she does not know her third son’s whereabouts. Her two daughters on the other hand have long been married and live with their respective family
It was disheartening to listen to her story. It was not like the old woman did not have any living children or relatives. Instead, her children chose to ignore her well-being. Sadly, the old woman said that she has come to terms with her unfortunate fate.
Now, she welcomes anyone who is willing to pay her a visit at her old house. The worn-out roof often leaves rain to drip from the ceiling
Anyone who has at least an ounce of sympathy would feel sad upon seeing how she continues to live her lonely life in the old house.
Her final wish is to not cause any trouble to her children or to anyone else when her time comes. Thus, she builds her own coffin as if she knew that she would leave the world anytime soon.
The old woman’s story is a good reminder to people to never take their elderly for granted. They have spent their time taking care of us when were young. When they grow old, we should return them the favor and love them for the rest of their remaining days.
