One man’s burden

Filed under: social — Hailin @ 7:15 pm

The great Sichuan earthquake has consumed tens of thousands of lives.

This young man, named cheng Jian, was trapped under three concrete blocks.  Before he was rescued and died afterwards, he said “I will sustain my life, I can’t leave my kid without dad … everyone who is facing difficulties should persevere”.

  2. I am very sorry to know this. It is very painful to know what he went through and how he passed away. I hope his kids will make their father’s great dreams come true.

  4. As a father of 3 myself I can get behind Cheng Jian’s determination. So sad that he didn’t make it. What happened to his children? Do they have more family? A sobering image for a Wednesday morning.
