I recently have been seeing old people getting bullied or beat up in the streets while they're taking their solitude walks.
What are your opinions/feelings about this, and 'what would you do'?
[I remember seeing this in a "What would you do" episode as well]
My father just turned 77 years old today. And I think that's a great impact on my values. It makes me extremely angry to see teens bully and elder. To me, that is the highest disrespect one can do, and the kind of people karma likes to bite. I love and respect elders highly, and hate seeing them get hurt or made fun of. It's one of the things that strikes my horrid side. Why would they hurt someone with so much experience and knowledge that youngins don't understand. Also, they're at the stage where they might look helpless .. so I think however would try to harm them are the lowest. I cringe seeing old people getting hurt.
If I saw an elderly getting bullied by teens, first of all I would see if I can handle the teens. I would first talk to them and ask them 'WTH are you doing this for? You find any award from this?' if they remain ignorant and don't stop when I ask them to, I would then just help the elderly avoid them, but if they continue to bother the elderly still, I wouldn't mind proceeding to violence. Calling the police would be an option as well.
