That morning, an elderly woman with her nurse came to library. I saw them and asked them “Do you need some help?” Maybe that old woman could not hear very clearly, so her nurse replied to me “Oh yes, um… she lost her all memory, so there is only one thing can make her happy, she wants to look at some garden photos on the computer.” “OK, I’ll do that for her,” I said back. After the old woman sat down, I began to find pictures for her. When she looked the pictures, I saw she was happy, as if she was in that garden. She kept saying “That’s really beautiful, look at that, so amazing, there is pink, orange, purple, oh and red over there!” Maybe most people thought that it was a normal sentence, but when you get older, maybe you could not remember everything in your life and maybe there was only one thing that can bring you joy. For younger people, a garden photo is just something not worth mentioning, but what I want to point out that it is important to understand and help older people not to laugh at them!
