I was flipping through the television channels, when I came across the drama One Tree HillNext thing you know, I was wrapped up in this show! Normally, I just scoff at shows of this nature, but on this particular day, I happened to watch the episode. Don’t worry I won’t go into all the details; There was one heart warning moment, and I wanted to share it with you.
I will leave out the actual names of the characters for the benefit of those readers who are not familiar with the show.
A young man, visits an old man called Mel, every Saturday, at an elder’s home. One day, he took his date along with him to meet Mel. Apparently, Mel has been a popular and successful race car driver in his day! So, this girl suggested that they take Mel to a race track and do the go car thing. Mel enjoyed it very much. Then the girl comments, ‘Mel probably won't forget their big night for awhile’. Then this young man tells her that Mel is his grandfather who is suffering from the Alzheimer's disease. He went on to say that Mel most likely won't remember any of it of the good time he had that day.
She asks him why he keeps coming to see his grandpa when he'll just forget. The young man replies, “I will remember. Mel doesn't have much more time, and besides, no one should die alone”
I have often wondered why, some people risk their own lives to rescue total strangers. Tsunami, earth quakes, bombs etc… If you haven’t witnessed in real life, I am sure you must have at least seen it on television.
Now, I think I understand - Why.
