A 9-year old street child was caught on CCTV stealing the condolence money from the wake. Was on the news which I happen to just see while having dinner tonight. The daughter of the dead person was interviewed and she said, it was only money but the child should have respected her dead mother. Yes, it was only money and the street child was probably hungry and needed the money more. This child has been on the street all his life with no known parents. This child could have probably never even gone to school at all! Do you think this child had the opportunity to grasp the concept of RESPECT or even understood what it means? I know what the 9-year old did was wrong. But I could let it pass. I would probably never mention about respect for the dead for this child may never have known that at all. I actually felt sorry for him. And even if this child belongs to a syndicate forcing children to steal, i would still feel sorry and would even feel more sorry as he is just a victim in this situation.
