Honoring Fathers

An inspirational story of love and honoring one’s parents.




A son took his father to a restaurant to enjoy a delicious dinner. His father was quite old and therefore a little weak too.
While eating, food occasionally fell on his shirt and pants. The other guests watched the old man with their faces contorted in disgust, but his son remained calm.

After they both finished eating, the son, quietly helped his father and took him to the toilet. Cleaned food scraps from his crumpled face, and attempted to wash food stains from his clothes; graciously combed his gray hair and finally put on his glasses.

As he left the bathroom, a deep silence reigned in the restaurant. The son was ready to foot the bill, but before leaving, a man, also old, got up and asked the old man’s son: ‘Don’t you think you left something here ? ‘

The young man replied: ‘No, I did not leave anything.’ Then the stranger said to him: ‘You left a lesson here for every son, and a hope for every father! ”The whole restaurant was so quiet, you could hear a pin drop.

One of the greatest honors that exists, is being able to take care of those who have taken care of us too. Our parents and all those elders who sacrificed their lives, with all their time, money and effort for us, deserve our utmost respect.
