Neglected sheeps

The classic gospel story of the lost sheep (Mt 18:12-14) is often meditated by keeping the 99 ones in favorable light. Is it true?It is the need of the times to notice the 99 ones, even before thinking of going back in search of the lost one. It is sad the other 99 gets little care whereas all celebration is made in honour of the one brought back. The shepherd in Jesus story should have been so sensible, but sadly most of the shepherds of the day are not.
