Filial Piety Alive!

A middle-aged man in Taiwan, Ting Tsu-chi was caught in video, carrying his frail mother to seek treatment in Chi Mei Hospital(inset). That probably means that the first virtue in Chinese culture, filial piety is very much alive in Chinese society. Filial piety  ( , xiào) is a virtue of respect for one's parents and ancestors. It means one has to be good to one's parents, love and respect them, work to support them and behave so as not to tarnish their good name.One must not be rebellious, be polite and carry out sacrifices even after the parents' demise. Filial piety indeed is not an easy task!
