A Hope

Popularity 2Viewed 4613 times 2014-5-29 11:52 |System category:News

When a person is in trouble, he should keep a hope in his heart.
A friend of mine had a truck accident ten years ago. She hasn't been able to stand up since then on. Unluckily ,her husband and her son have never looked after her after the accident. Instead, they sent her to a nursing home. At first she felt sad. Later, she tried to cheer up and forget all the unhappy things. Now she does her best to help some children with their English.
In 2010, the World Expo was held in Shanghai. I took her to visit it. Although she had to be in her wheelchair, she still shared happiness with me.  We visited some pavillions excitedly. I asked her why she could keep happy. She said that her days mustn't be full tears and she should be faced with life . Every day is her new hope.
I have learned a lot from her , especially her spirit wih hope.

Life without hope is like sailing without a compass!

  • Where is happiness? 2016-11-15 18:58

    I watched the movie The Stand the other day and while I was watching it I was thinking how great it would be if most of the people in world suddenly died. If all of the infrastructure was still in place it would be fantastic. Whenever I watch 'day after' type movies I wish that something like that would happen. In my opinion the world is a very terrible place and I blame humans. If most humans died I would be very happy about it. The sooner we create artilects that are superior to humans the better in my opinion.

    If everyone died then nobody would be trying to make me go to work. I would love it. I hate having to go to work. If everyone just died one day there would be plenty of food about - and nobody telling me that I had to work. I like the Simpsons Halloween special where they do a 'day after' type story and in it Homer starts living in the local church. If everyone died I would find a great Cathedral to live in. It would be so cool.

    Do you really like people so much? I seriously hate them. And they wont leave me alone because society seems to think that I am some kind of slave or something. Wont pay me a living wage. They want me to work.

    And look at Africa. Look at all the poverty in the world - and look how the wealthy live. I would be so very happy if most people died.

    Have you ever read the Jack London story The Scarlett Plague? It is very good. It is probably my favourite day after type story. But I do not understand what was so hard about killing that Chauffeur guy. What was the problem? Why not kil him while he was asleep? Throw a massive rock at him. Push him off a cliff. Poison him. Stab him. What was the problem? I dont get it.
