What Happened That Made You Feel Sorry For Your Parents?

25

Early 1996, I fell sick suddenly and had to be rushed to the hospital. It was a private clinic and while I was waiting to see the doctor my dad was at the cashier trying to pay.... A while later he came towards me with a sour face...I couldn't read his thoughts... Much later I was attended to and given some drugs and allowed to go home. When I got better, my dad told me what happened at the cashier. He hadn't enough money to complete my treatment...so he was lost in thought... while pondering on the next move...a man was also at the cashier trying to pay for his sick child's drugs and treatment....and was leafing through a bundle of notes! Counted and paid without flinching! More than 10 times my treatment money! My dad said he felt sorry for himself that day....and so did I! From thence I promised to do all I can to give him a great retirement... unfortunately he passed before this was to be! Please share yours....
