Let’s start off with a study out of London–one of the hearts of Liberalism in the English speaking world.
I’m sure the link will disappear eventually, as digital means temporary. So, let me summarize the study using a quote from the article.
“These latest figures show that hundreds of thousands of older people in the UK will spend today and the rest of this week alone, with no one to share even a few simple words with.”
Two things not mentioned in the article are church and children. How many of these seniors that never speak to anyone in a week fell for the Liberal agendas of aborting their babies and staying away from church? Now they are alone and miserable. God and their children did not desert them. They turned their backs on God and having children.
I’ve seen this situation play out in the lives of acquaintances at work. They’re closing in on senior citizen age, living with aging parents who will not out live them. They’re divorced, if they ever got married in the first place. And, have no children, because that is what the religion of Liberalism told them would bring happiness.
The worst part is that they still stand by this lifestyle of misery.
Lest anyone say, “Good. They brought it on themselves.” Remember the words of King Benjamin.
“Perhaps thou shalt say: The man has brought upon himself his misery; therefore I will stay my hand, and will not give unto him …
But I say unto you, O man, whosoever doeth this the same hath great cause to repent; and except he repenteth of that which he hath done he perisheth forever, and hath no interest in the kingdom of God. For behold, are we not all beggars? Do we not all depend upon the same Being, even God?”
He was speaking specifically of giving food and money where needed, but it applies equally to giving emotional support.
This study proves there are many older people around us that need social support and friendship. Look around for older people that have found themselves in this state of loneliness. Relieve their suffering. Be friendly, and give them a reason to smile and talk to someone on a regular basis. Be their friend.
