I boarded on Metro Rail Transit (MRT) from Taft on my way to Cubao last January 19, 2018 (Friday); 3:15 P.M. when I noticed that an elderly couple aged 85-91 travelling by themselves without any company. As my eyes roved around, I saw all the elderly as well. This is common sight whenever I am boarded inside an MRT coach for the elderly section.
“Why children even the young teens are accompanied often by adults but the elderly are often left behind by themselves?” This question often comes to my mind whenever I see them. And I am speaking an elderly because I am a senior citizen and I am about to turn 62.
