Why is there a reluctance to grant honorary titles to some personalities after they attain the age of the smart?

Motto: In artwork, as in politics, there isn’t any gratitude (George Bernard Shaw)

I ask this rhetorical query to the officers, after all, to which they in all probability do not have a solution. I bought the concept to put in writing these traces after studying an article in Napoca Information concerning the awarding of the title of “Honorary Citizen”, put up mortem, to the historian and archivist Vasile Lechintan. It was mentioned on this publication that: “His Most Reverend Father Andrei, Archbishop of Vad, Feleac and Cluj and Metropolitan of Cluj, Maramureș and Sălaj, participated on Thursday, July 21, 2022, in a commemorative occasion devoted to the historian Vasile Lechințan, entitled “In eternity with… Transylvania from phrases”.

The occasion passed off within the hometown of the historian, Silivașu de Câmpie, being organized by the Silivașu de Câmpie Metropolis Corridor and Native Council, in collaboration with the Bistrița-Năsăud County Council and the Bistrița-Năsăud County Middle for Tradition”. On this event, the title of HONORARY CITIZEN and the identify of this necessary Transylvanian historian was awarded to a road within the locality.

This incident is just not distinctive. In all places in our picturesque Romania, the officers are very stingy with awarding some distinctions to personalities, who’ve reached a sophisticated age, who do honor to the town the place they have been born. And there’s no query of erecting statues or busts. When Victor Eftimiu made a bust of himself underneath his window, or Dinu Săraru and Adrian Păunescu positioned their busts in entrance of the Cultural House in Slătioara, they have been criticized.

Why ought to they not take pleasure in, whereas they’re nonetheless alive, the popularity of their fellow residents? After I go into eternity, what is the level?! They now not have the chance to benefit from the occasion. Why this stinginess and our lack of gratitude in direction of these individuals who have achieved one thing for Romanian society?

Let’s not overlook that the majority of those personalities, whether or not writers, scientists, scientists, athletes, have devoted their whole lives, sacrificing their well being, earnings, time, to lift tradition, science and sports activities to the heights, bringing honor to localities in the place they have been born or the place they reside. Together with the nation. It’s identified that the awarding of a title, no matter it might be, is nothing greater than a Diploma and an announcement within the press. Do not these personalities who’ve reached superior ages, and who’re nonetheless alive, deserve this gesture from the officers? Why a lot malice, constipation and negligence on the a part of administrations and politicians?

Let’s keep in mind what the smart Bartholomew Ananias mentioned:Gratitude is just not a advantage however a great behavior, it’s a part of the code of stylish manners, that you understand how to behave.”

I do not need to imagine that, on this scenario, Marin Preda is correct: “To stay a person amongst males, solely to avoid wasting in your selfÞand the concept of ​​man, even when alÞhe steps on her ft.
