DEBBIE GUILLIAM POSTED ON HER FACEBOOK PAGE AUGUST 14, 2017:
[For those of you who still have your parents in your lives: You are so blessed. But some of you are too blind to realize how precious time is & that your parents won’t be around forever. You should really try to be patient with your parents so that you can enjoy their final years with them because once both your parents are gone. they won’t be back. You will not be able to make up those days you choose not to spend with them. Since I lost both my parents I feel like I have nobody. Sometimes I wish G-d would call me home because my heart feels so empty anymore. Nobody in the family really talks to me … or Ronda Wade.. We pretty much have just each other, our husbands and our kids (when they feel like being around us), otherwise most of our family wrote us off when we were little tiny girls except for a few loving family members.]
DEBBIE GUILLIAM: G-D MUST BE MISSING AN ANGEL, BECAUSE YOUR POST IS MORE VALUABLE THAN ALL THE TEA IN CHINA. IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE ME, ASK MY FRIEND, GONG LI.
GONG: Oh, yes.Debbie, your intrinsic value is only surpast by this post you gave our world.
SCOTT: MS. LI,, why do you say that?
GONG: From my personal experience.
SCOTT: Can you, will you clarify that statement?
GONG: Yes, I can and I will. It pleases me much. In my life and in the place were I was raised, it was matter of fact to honer your mother and father; traditio, by extension, tyhose who have come ad passed away also. This is our way in rural China, not so much in the great cities. Sadly, not so much anywhere.
SCOTT: Do you believe that humaniyty can return to that state of being where the ekders are repected?
GONG: Of course.
SCOTT: Honor thy mother and father. These are beautiful words. Must they be taken literally?
GONG: Nothimg should be litterally taken without contemplation. You may extrapolate this “saying” to mean much more or even much less. In general though, I believe it is a metaphor for honoring all those who come before us..By doingso, and listening to what our elders have to say, with all thier wisdom, is a great part along the way to fufilling our own true path. Do you undstand me?
SCOTT: MS LI, I do. I undersatnd comletely with clarity because yopu speak that way. Thank you for your time. We all appprecaite and you so very, very much.
GONG: Thank you, and may you always remain blessed.
