Comments

R.M. Hidden : I'm Korean and my biggest concern right now is that her sons find out this video and try to take her money.

NoelDC : Please do a follow-up documentary. It would be great to know how this sweet lady is doing.

Rogueter Olsen : I feel sad inside to be honest, A mom whos been doing everything for her children but the child can't take care of her. I hope she will get the better, i really hope. :(

Martane : She has been struggling for 5 years and she's this happy... I wanna reach this level of humbleness.

blogusvox : I saw her smiling Proud, independent, alone All I felt was pain

Ekalavya : she enjoyed the company more than anything else. loneliness will kill you before your body does.

Sofia : i was crying a lot (and i am still actually). i can't understand why this is happening with our world. We should help each other. the big respect to you guys

Navjot Singh : it's sad to see 848 dislikes on this video, maybe they are the ones who can't take care of their parents.

John Turner : She has to be a saint, how she can still be so full of life after everything she went through :( well done to you guys. Her outlook astounds me .

Sp0oKe : That money better not go to the sons....

Zzie Zzie : No matter how hard the situation her kids are in, there is no excuse in abandoning your mother. Even if she tells you that she's okay and everything is fine, you should still come visit her, support her or take her with you. The fact that she's 82 and still working 14 hours a day, carrying those big heavy boxes to make ends meet and barely have anything to eat, is truly heartbreaking. 💔

Miriam Kone : _______________________________ I'm mortified to see that I could never leave the woman who gave birth to me like that What does my situation matter NEVER

Thucca Le : 5:47 She looked so resentful when she said her children would help her

Jay G : *So Sad...* 😕😕😕 love the elders... *most of them sacrificed for the future generations..*

Bobs Key : Despite of her situation, she still manages to smile. She's poor but rich in spirit.

UNLEASHING POTENTIAL - PSYCHOLOGY VIDEOS : It is sad that people who work hard their whole lives and end up in poverty at the end.

Satisfying NoteTaking : I would never be able to let my grandma live like that. I wouldn't be able to bear the shame.

Ketipongla Longchar : 10:48 "it was a great day" with that tone. She really meant that. Her children does not support her but she has no hard feelings towards them. This day must've been the only day she was accompanied by people around her age. She must've felt the presence of her children in them. I'm sad. Thank you for this. Thank you so so much. For her , the world is such a beautiful place. I'm not a good writer , there's so much I've learned from this clip about life I'm more greatful from now on. Thank you thank you thank you. God bless you. God bless grandma ♡

Adam Idrus Bunajos : She might not rich with wealth but rich with health... She might not strong like young people but her heart is the strongest among the people... For her, its not about money but merely about your beliefs that God will never abandon you.... May God Bless You...

Nagarath16 : Is there any follow ups on her? Have you visited again? Or send letters?

Asian Level Gaming : She went to Church but the rich pastor never help her. That summed up many things

Janek Pawulon : im feeling so sorry about all of them

Kevin P : This poor old lady is just one year younger than my mother. I can't imagine my mother at her age collecting boxes off the street just to make $2 per day. Thank you for giving her $2K which I'm sure she'll make last as long as possible. It's a shame she was abandoned by her 5 children. I can't believe that not one of the five could take her into his/her family. I hope she doesn't get robbed now that it's out in public that she got that large sum of money.

Kuku Tsuha : I don't mind adopting her. Omg she is so lovable .God bless her with good health.

Pawpaw A. : How could a child do this to their own mother?

rae : the way she laughs, it hurts me more knowing how hard she works to get by at age 82

Scope DNR : Such a positive attitude, blessings to her.

globe1987 : It broke my heart at the beginning, when she said that her kids told her they're studying, but she then says they probably don't want to help. I love how you guys gave her some of your own money. Bless her, she was happy enough that you even spent the day with her. She sounds like she's super lonely, too.

sylv : god bless her soul. she is so sweet and genuine. i hope she remains healthy💗

Balzac T. Bagher : Just renember this when our politicians want to cut social security

That Piece Of Trash : This lady really is so sweet like awww making my heart burst she deserves the world
