Concern, respect and love for the elderly is a reflection of the behavior that must continue to be maintained by the nation and deserve to be an example of anyone, especially during this pandemic. Let us sow as much goodness as possible by serving parents and the elderly as a concrete manifestation of an attitude of social care. (JF/Trans: KS)
