A lot of grandparents are taken to retirement houses to spend the rest of their days. They pass away leaving a confusing impression of sadness and grief.
That was the impression that experienced the people that worked at the place where the protagonist of this story has passed away.
"What do they think of me when they look at me? That I'm a curmudgeon. That I don't notice anything that happens. I let them clean me and feed me against my will.
Well, wake up, because that's not me. I will tell you:
- I'm ten years old and I have a beloved family.
- I'm the 16-year-old girl that dreams of love.
- I'm a lady that gets married at the age of 20.
- I'm 30, I have a home and children. I'm happy.
- I'm 40, my children are grown up, they're all united forever.
- Now I'm 50, my children have their own home, but my husband is by my side.
- I'm 60, the babies are sitting on my laps again, this time they're my beloved grandchildren.
My husband dies and I see a dark future without him. My children are still here, but they're far away, with their families. I remember the past years and the love I had around. I'm old and alone. They brought me to this place. Old people are burden.
See who I am! Remember, when you see an old person, someday, you'll be one too".
Don't think that the grandparents are lost in their worlds. They have feelings too, just
like us. We have to value them.
