The truly inspiring story of the Chinese rubbish collector who saved and raised THIRTY babies abandoned at the roadside
A woman has been hailed a hero after details of her astonishing work with abandoned children has emerged.
Lou Xiaoying, now 88 and suffering from kidney failure, found and raised more than 30 abandoned Chinese babies from the streets of Jinhua, in the eastern Zhejiang province where she managed to make a living by recycling rubbish.
She and her late husband Li Zin, who died 17 years ago, kept four of the children and passed the others onto friends and family to start new lives.
Her youngest son Zhang Qilin - now aged just seven - was found in a dustbin by Lou when she was 82.
‘Even though I was already getting old I could not simply ignore the baby and leave him to die in the trash. He looked so sweet and so needy. I had to take him home with me,’ she said.
Why doesn’t this have more notes?
This woman is nothing short of an angel.
She has so little and gives so much, and organizations such as the government and school systems won’t do anything for this cause.
I am at loss of words at this lady’s sacrifice.
When archaeologists work to understand an ancient civilization, they often use that civilization’s texts to get a clue as to how they saw themselves. But these people didn’t live in isolation. They traded; they invaded. They carried inventions and knowledge back and…
I am mindblown right now. Chinese people writing about Rome in the 3rd century AD? I don’t even know, man. It simply doesn’t fit into my image of ‘history’. Sounds like a crazy, impossible thing. Goes to show how skewed my idea of history is! The translated text has some really interesting stuff in it, I especially recommend reading the author’s comments in the end.
I had reblogged this for an Ancient Art Week, but I really have to say it’s one of those articles that can really shake people up. I think the best part is once you *think* about it for a minute, it seems really obvious, like, “well, of course they would write about it”. Writing things down as a human activity has a long, long history.
I also really recommend that people read the actual text/translation. It’s cool stuff! Keep in mind-the third century was not that long before the beginning of what we term the “Middle Ages”-historical periods do not involve racial reset buttons, and these labels for chunks of history were created much later than the people and events involved were active.
I was complaining to my friend the other day that my ‘Ancient History’ class is really just ‘Ancient Western History’. When asked about China and the Far East, my professor said “The Chinese were so far away from Rome that nobody in Rome really thought about them.”
So this feels appropriate.
Ouch. Well, as for Roman thoughts about China:
According to the Greek historian Strabo (63-24 CE) the Greeks “extended their empire as far as the Seres” (xi.ii.i). `Seres’ was the name by which the Greeks and Romans knew China, meaning `the land where silk came from’. It is thought, then, that the first contact between China and the west came around the year 200 BCE.
Speaking of Strabo’s writing on Asia, you can read Strabo’s account of India here, in which he apologized for replying heavily on earlier accounts of people who’d actually, you know. Been there. It’s amusing at least for the attempts to describe what sugar cane is, by someone who’d never seen/tasted it, to people who’ve never seen/tasted it:
An abundance of fruit is produced by trees; and the roots of plants, particularly of large reeds, possess a sweetness which they have by nature and by coction…
Nearchos states that [the] reeds yield honey, although there are no bees, and that there is a tree from the fruit of which honey is procured, but that the fruit eaten fresh causes intoxication.
