Golden Key For A Rich Japan Today

“These days, I have witnessed many touching stories about human love in tribulation. But there is one thing that has touched me the most, to make an adult like me – also have to think about the lesson of being human.

The other day, I was dispatched to an elementary school to help distribute food to the victims. In the line of people waiting in line to receive food, I noticed a small child about 9 years old, only a T-shirt and shorts. It was so cold that the boy was the last in line.

I was afraid that when it was your turn, there would be no food left, so I came to ask.

The boy told me he was studying at school during PE when the earthquake and tsunami struck. My father who worked nearby ran to school. From the 3rd floor balcony of the school, he saw the car and his father was swept away, “100% is dead”. Asked where his mother was, the boy said his house was on the beach, and his mother and younger brother would not be able to run.

He turned, wiped away tears when he heard me ask relatives.

Seeing her shivering coldly, I took off my police jacket over the boy. Unknowingly, my dinner rations bag fell out. I picked it up and gave it to the boy and said, “Wait for your turn to run out of food, my portion, I have already eaten, so you can eat to reduce your hunger”.

The boy accepted my dry bag, leaning in to thank me. I thought he would have to eat it right away. But no, the boy wrapped the dry bags straight up to the people who were distributing the food and put the dried food bags into the distribution boxes of food and then went back to line up.

I was stunned and surprised, I just asked “why don’t you eat and put it in there”. The boy answered, “Because there are many more people who are hungry than me. Put them there to distribute them equally. ”

I heard and quickly turned away to cry. No doubt a 9-year-old child, just in grade 3 was able to “teach” a well-educated, doctorate degree like me a lesson in human life in the most difficult times. A very touching lesson about sacrifice. ”
