Dear Mr. Wang,
I am writing to tell you that I decide to leave my position. During the last two months, I enjoyed myself in the company where the interpersonal atmosphere was pleasant. But my job as an editor requires broad mind and extraordinary perception, and I find it hard to collect and comb all the materials and finally get logical organization. On the other hand, it is routine for people in the position to work late till morning,which exceeds my health condition since my feeble heart needs sound sleep to function.
I want to make an apology for quitting my position so soon and for any inconvenience it might bring to you. I hope you can understand my apprehension.

As is shown in the picture, there are four siblings, three sons and one daughter in the four comers of the picture, each keeping a goal net seriously as goalkeeper. Their old father crouches like a football and all about on the ground, being kicked around by his children.
This picture indicates the current deteriorating old-caring circumstance: many grown-up children refuse to provide for their aged parents, regarding them as heavy burdens; those miserable senior citizens have no strength to fight for their rights and benefits, only to be maltreated by their children that have been raised by their own hands and sweats.
This picture is thought-provoking to me. I feel sorry for those parents who have spent half of their lives breeding their children but at last become the deserted. People should reflect on this issue and what has happened to our ethical values including the traditional filial duty. We should enhance our education on the traditional virtue and fight against the morbid social backdrop. It's time that our traditional values restored and the senior citizens be taken good care of.
