The last time I saw the sea
The media interviewed the person in charge of the Queensland ambulance service. The incident occurred in Hervey Bay. Two ambulance service staff Graeme Cooper and Danielle Kellan were tasked to take an elderly woman from her home to the hospice department of the hospital.The ambulanceman understood that this was the last trip of the old woman away from home and would never return.The old woman said that she lived in this place with her husband for a long time and cherished this place and the beach very much.The ambulanceman asked her if she wanted to go to the beach to see the sea again?The old woman was overjoyed when she heard it.
So, the ambulance service staff immediately turned around and drove the car to the beach, pushing the stretcher bed to let the old woman look at the sea again before she died, and see how many years she spent with her husband.The ambulanceman stood by the stretcher bed and accompanied the old woman. Seeing this moment, another ambulanceman couldn't help taking out his mobile phone and filming the scene.
The person in charge of the ambulance service said that this is not one of the ambulance services, it is neither training nor treatment.But sometimes, just add a little compassion and make some changes.Although this is a recent story reposted by Chinese internet media, it actually happened in November 2017, and it has been happily ever since.
大学毕业时，学系一副主任给我评定，虽然毕业paper通过，但由於我在Classmate中「制造思想混乱」，所以扣起我的毕业证书及学位证书。很多年之後，从澳洲返回alma materJoinClassmateAt the party, I want to see this teacher again and let him know that I have obtained a PhD, but it turns out that this teacher has already left.
Write column with senior teacher
The third teacher once moreClassmate聚会中，公开说我是他最好的学生！我当时心感不妙，立即说身边还有很多好学生，因为确实有人喜欢去争夺这些「光环」，这是社会常态。不过，这位老师与新闻界另一老前辈，当时只找我这个学生与他们两人轮流执笔撰写报上的一专栏，实在感谢老师与前辈的赏识！其他多位老师也一直与我保持联络。
Speaking of the teacher-student relationship, I thought of a female student who had followed me for many years, and she was one of the many leaders that I trained myself.On a teaching trip to the beach to watch the sunrise, this girl student held my sleeves hand in hand as she stepped up the hill.Once again, when a few of our teachers, students and parents were chatting with their father, the female student actually lay head on my shoulder.The female student was actually sick, and she was still very sick, but the parents didn't notice it.
I tried to communicate with his parents, but the parents did not believe that their daughter was seriously ill.Until one day, I received a call from the father, saying that his daughter was gone.I remember the day when the sun was shining, but it suddenly rained heavily.Life is so fragile and simple, just like Xu Zhimo's verse: "Quietly I am leaving, just as I came quietly; I wave my sleeves, not taking away a cloud."
Gate of Heaven and Gate of Hell
I often drive to pick up teachers and students, and of course I also drive to pick up my wife.One day, Uchiko lost her temper and said that she wanted to walk.So the next day, I just stood at the door and waited for her to see if she was heading in the direction of walking or in the direction of the car.As a result, for more than a week, she still asked me to drive her.
Emperor Qin Shihuang wiped out the six kingdoms to unify the world, thinking that he had accomplished the great cause of the ages, but it was passed down to Qin II and the country was wiped out.It is the two little-known Australian ambulancemen who have realized the hope of the old woman watching the sea for the last time with a small amount of effort.Become a story!
