Loneliness

Years ago families were much closer than they are today and because of the many changes in society over decades the extended family is no longer as close together as they used to be. We are again on the brink of change because there has to be if the care that was so freely given when times were hard in days gone by is to flourish again and bring us the cherished love and steadfastness that every family needs. It is becoming more commonplace every day to hear about the loneliness of millions of people deserted and alone particularly the elderly who do understand the difficulties that are being heaped upon their children and grandchildren in the world today, it is sad and harrowing to read the article in the link below and is surely a warning for everyone to search their hearts and make every effort to see that any future generation does not have the same experience of feeling they are abandoned because they grow old, or for any other reason. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2269846/I-adore-grandchildren-Im-just-old-bat-year-A-grandmothers-heart-strike-chord-millions.html Things are slowly changing for the better as there are still people who care and are trying their best to do something about it. The charity YouthNet showed that loneliness crosses generations. Two charities YouthNet and Age UK are joining forces in order to bring older and younger people together and they are raising cash for a new service in which young volunteers will help isolated people learn how to use the internet. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2269337/The-grandparents-rarely-grandchildren-One-sees-relatives-month-less.html
