According to normal death ratio, more than 10 million single children died before 25 years old from 1975 to 2010. That is to say, about 20 million parents lost their only child when they were at middle age and became isolated and helpless old people. They not only lose financial support from their children, but also suffer from the mental damages. They are the victims of the family planning policy, which is still a national policy now. (Writer Wu Jiaxiang, Editor Wang Wai, translated from QQ.com)
This steamed bun has been sealed and maintained for five years with a slip “this is the last breakfast of Xiao Hong on the morning of Feb 13, 2003”. Xiao Hong died from heart disease that day at 35 years old. His father Professor Pan kept this steamed bun since then.
Professor Pan and his wife married at 34 years old to follow the national policy. When he is 70 years old now and needs care from his son, he can only look at the photo to memorize his son.
Professor Pan is 75 years old now and works at Tsinghua University for 53 years. He does not retire now and commute between his apartment house on campus and his office. He and his wife have tried to apply for nursing houses. But they are rejected for they do not have a son or a daughter to sign for their application forms.
