这一个礼拜,不是用天来计算的,是用分分秒秒来计算的。

许多的消息,不忍心看,却不能不看。不忍心听,却不能不听。

海啸也罢,风灾也罢,生死都是一瞬间的事情,相对来说,还是比较好的。地震的受难者,如果顿时去了还好,否则就是人间地狱。受难者的身体也许深埋在瓦砾底下,一时半刻去不了。叫天不应,叫地不灵,空气慢慢用光了,血慢慢流光了,人的意志也没有了,剩余的只是恐慌,痛苦,持续十多个小时后才死去。想到这种折磨,就难以忍受。再想象把这些痛苦放在孩子的身上,真是痛彻心扉。

back then when i was backpacking. i went to 都江堰. hard to accept the fact. it is like, you just had a wonderful dinner with a good friend, and then he is just gone, in the blink of an eye.

same. i went snorkeling at Phi Phi island. when the Tsunami hit that coastline. it broke my heart. when these disasters happened, and they relate to you in a way that you cannot even describe, if you have been there.

then you start to ponder. start to let go of certain things that have been disturbing for years.

some struggles in life, in character, in relationship (friendship, family, etc.), seemed to be trivia. some desires seemed to be unnecessary. some happiness cannot be taken for granted. some forgiveness just needs a little courage. some pains seemed to heal itself. some regrets in life, seemed to be wisdom gained. some hatred seemed to be able to manage.

and, learn to let go. learn to appreciate. learn to be grateful. learn to love. learn to trust. learn to help. learn to tough up a little when time is hard...

we all are too overwhelmed by the 5.12 China earthquake. However, back in early May, Cyclone Nargis battered Myanmar.

To date, 22,000 people have perished, over 41,000 are missing and as many as 1 million people have been left homeless...

It means more than just a number that we see here. More than that.

What am I trying to say here? I also don't know, to be honest.

Just reminded of the theme for Teacher's Day in 1994 - 感恩,知足,惜福。

The Burmese cyclone and the Chinese earthquakes are equally tragic events. It is understandable however there are emotional and technological reasons why one event appears to be more heart-breaking than the other. Emotional reason: one is more heart-broken over the tragedy of his/her family, and by extension his/her kind. Technological reason: we receive more reporting of the latter disaster. We are emotional animals after all.

Nevertheless, what we can do to compensate our emotional prejudice is to lend equal helping hands to the victims of both tragedies.

有个幸存者说,他的肩膀脱臼了,几天后发臭了,他几乎就放弃生存的意志,但是他还是很想活下来。最后获救了。

也有人后来说,他的下面也压着人,上面也压着人,他们都死了,尸体随着时间的流失而腐烂发臭,他没有死,但被这一些尸臭味也熏得几乎不行了。

这里的电视天天播着感人的新闻。有老师奋不顾身的回去就学生,结果学生楼倒塌,他也永远没有走出来。也有个老师用身体紧紧地护着讲台的缝隙保护里面的4个学生,被挖掘出来的时候,援救人员还要用很大的力气才把老师的手扳开。这一些的故事,看得我泪流满面。我对这些人真的敬佩!希望他们在天堂也过得很好。

上一周。。。去天堂的路很拥挤。。。
