Mr Chen from Jiaxing, Zhejiang Province, has a permanent job in Shanghai, leaving his elderly parents in hometown. Three weeks ago, he called home but there was no answer. Afterwards, he tried more time but was in vain. Worried about his parents' safety, he hurried home on 26th October only to find that both of them passed away, one on the ground and the other on the bed. The police's investigation revealed that the father died ten days ago, and the mother a week later because of hunger and dehydration. It is speculated that Mr Chen's father suffered from an accident, leaving his mother with severe dementia unattended. This is not merely a family's sadness but a whole society's tragedy. Our parents are growing older and weaker. We as daughters and sons should take care of them with a filial heart and meanwhile as members of society should summon up collective wisdom to tackle the problem of aging.

Very sad and tragic experience. However children cannot be held responsible for the parents every minute of the day and vice versa. Anyone can go to the store, holiday or work when the unfortunate happens either to themselves or family member. 2 weeks past my wife and I met a friend in the street, little did we know that 3-4 minutes later he dropped dead after taking a few more steps on his way. 28 years old, cause an intracranial aneurysm (also called cerebral or brain aneurysm], it is unfortunate but as we all know death it is the only thing in life which is guaranteed. There is no book that says you live or die on what date at what time. It seem Mr Chen who has suffered this traumatic experience was away on his business possibly earning to provide for his parents. Again this is not an isolated incident, many millions leave their families and children each year, to find work in other cities and towns, not knowing if its the last time. However isn't it a very sad fact that any neighbours in the vicinity  did not notices anything untoward. Which may prove that many really don't care to others, just themselves. Sad story very sad.

Terrible story.

Denial, according the psychoanalysts, is one of the most primary mechanisms of defense. It consists in the attitude of denying or minimizing obvious facts of reality with which the individual can´t  cope or whose irresponsibility is unable to meet.

And I agree.

why he didnt ask one of his neighbors to check on his parents from time-to-time  
a man who uses his hands is a laborer. one who uses his hands and his mind is a craftsman. but he who uses his hands, his mind, and his heart, is an artist...
