What is your definition of happiness? When do you feel happy? For most of us, happiness means have a family, earning a lot of money, having fun, getting a successful career, winning No. one at a contest and etc. Most of the times, we even don’t feel happy at all. As we grow up, the cost of our happiness increases.
However, for those Chinese people under 2019nCoV, happiness is just as simple as having a chance to study! Even though you can’t any see smiles from their face, their heart are full of strength and light!
You may heard something about the 2019nCoV in China, but you may not know what happened to people’s life during this long “ holiday”.
It has been 36 days since Wuhan blocked the whole city since 23rd, Jan. All rest cities in China. limited inflow and outflow later on. All restaurants and entertainment places are closed and people are all required to stay at home except for hospitals and drugstores. No Spring Holiday, no parties, no travelling, no friends and even no freedom!
Although people can’t go outside, Chinese government tried all ways to get everything in order!
All teachers start to teach and communicate with their students through online video. Business enterprises are having online meetings and their workers work at home. It seems quite good. But for some people, this online model may be a huge task or inconvenience.
A 14 years old girl named Cuizhu Guo, a middle school student, she’s from a small village in Henan Province. There is no WiFi at her home. She doesn’t want to quit the study and refuses to use her father’s mobile phone traffic cause this will cost a lot of money. In order to save money for her family, she chooses to study at the village committee yard after the approval of the village head. Because it has WiFi there!
Below is the photo of this girl studying in the dim light beside the stairs of the committee yard in a cold night. A middle-aged man, wearing a cotton jacket with his hands folded inside, sitting on a little bench not far away, is her father, an ordinary farmer who accompanied her daughter for days.
A young man is reading a book in his bed with great concentration at the module hospital in Wuhan. His name is Mr. Fu, a Doctor of Wuhan University and he is also a Postdoctor of Structural Biology at University of Florida. He got virus when he was visiting her parents for the Spring Holiday. His calmness shows the power of civilization!
This middle school boy arranged his day full with study in the Wuhan hospital. You can not imagine he also infected virus. He is the youngest infected person in his family. His parents are also affected. He is more like a warrior than the sufferer.
For them, Happiness is so simple, like health, to be alive, study, life back to normal! Sometimes, happiness is all around us, maybe you cannot see it, you can feel it!
