A pinch of five-spice lit up your eyes

I can not remember when it was the last time I cried or had tears full of my eyes, but the annual awards function I attended last week really made me feel the warm of tears because it came right out from my heart many times within 2 hours.  The function is organized by an individual doctor since 2005. The main propose of the function is to felicitate the people who manage to lead normal and happy lives despite fighting severe disabilities and diseases.

I think all of us feel sorry for the people who was born with physical disabilities and diseases. Whenever we meet them, we automatically show our sympathy to them and their families. Actually, instead of making them feel better, are we realized that maybe we hurt them more and more, again and again? 

Can you believe that a  46 year-old lady who was born with some diseases make her lose the ability of speaking, writing and walking, has become a CEO of her own organization to help the people have same problems? On the stage, she was very proud to tell everybody by talking slowly with her mum's help that she never gave up her own life to catch her own dream. She wanted to be educated like the other kids, so she got a MBA from London University. She wanted to be a useful person to the society, today she tried her best to light up other people's hopes. I was touched by her mum's short speech. She said that she does not like people call those kids disabled because they are very sensitive inside. They may have the difficulty to act physically,  but we should treat them like normal kids and let them have positive attitudes towards their own lives. This makes me think about the other case. Can you imagine that a 7 year-old kid is hidden inside her house for years and hardly have any neighbor see her? The simple reason is "Her parents just feel tired of answering the same question about how she became like that again and again. They thought it was better let her live in her own peace and get rid of the crowds."

I admire those parents who encourage their kids to have a normal life as others, but somehow, it is also difficult to blame on these parents who feel shame to bring their kids out of the shadow. We, the public, the people surround them, may give them too many pressures and unnecessary attentions. I respected all awards winner, because they show their positive attitudes and bring the hopes to the others like them. The most important part is We, who consider ourselves as Normal human beings, must feel thankful of lives. Whenever we meet them,  we should reconsider our reactions behaviors before we take the actions.

The word for today:
