Have you ever heard a disaster happened to someone for no reason? How did you feel? I am sure that you felt very bad and you were asking yourself: why such a thing happened to an innocent human being.
The story that you’re about to read happened in China about hundred years ago.It was a poor area in China and most people not only had no money to buy food but also they had no place to sleep; therefore, they had to sleep in the street and if you walked in the area in the morning, you could have seen many dead bodies due to severe cold and hunger and the government had to collect the corpse every morning.
.The story is about a 30 years old man born in China and his name was Chan . He had small eyes, long black hair upto his shoulders, long black beards, fat nose,6 foot tall,with clothes Full of spots, wrinkled, and dirty.His wife,Tian,was 29 years old , long hair up to her chest, small black eyes, small dirty face,purple wrinkled and dirty robe full of spots. they also had a 5 years old girl with dirty clothes and dirty face
He had no money to support his family; Therefore, they were living in an old boat close to the shore and he had to get up every morning at 6;00 AM to go to work.He was working for a shipping company and if he was late,the other workers that were ahead of him and came earlier than him would have taken the jobs and he would have had no money to buy food for his family.
One-Winter day he did not wake up on time and when his wife tried to wake him up, he got up and hit his wife with his shoe, and he went back to sleep.Tian went to corner of the boat and cried.White drops of tear were flowing on her dirty face and she looked at the sky and said:”What have I done that I deserve to live in poverty and to be hit by my husband ?, Please help me.”
Eventually Chan got up a few hours late,dressed up,got out of the boat, and started walking to go to work..It was so cold that he was shaking and was freeing..There were a lot of snow all over the streets that made it very difficult for him to walk..When he got to work it was 9:00 AM. The guard told him: “You are too late and we have no job for you. Why did you not come on earlier?”
Chan said:” I was tired and I was sleeping.”
The guard said:” Then , you and your family deserve to be hungry for today .”
Chan remembered that his wife tried to wake him up and he hit her.Therefore, he said:” I deserve to be hungry because i hit my wife when she wanted to wake me up but why her and my little girl deserve to be hungry and to be punished because of my selfishness?”
The guard closed his lips , shrunk his face, and said:” You do not deserve your wife . “
He was ashamed , regretful, hungry, and cold.He had no money and he couldn’t buy any food .;Therefore,he started walking.He went to a house in order to get some food . His friend was working in that house. fortunately , his friend who was about his age opened the door.Chan said:” I have no money and I am hungry . Can you help me.?
His friend did not say anything and brought him a cup of rice to eat.
After eating the rice he felt much better and he started walking in the direction of the main circle across from the Central police station.He had no idea that a gang had robbed a Bank in the area and took a lot of money.He also did not know what will be happening to him.
All of a sudden he noticed that a group of police force were pushing the crowd into this Police Department and he was in that group.. There were a lot of people and they were all talking to each other and asking: “ Why are we here?”No one knew the reason . Meanwhile,A lot of people in the crowd were released because they were well dressed and clean but they kept those who looked like bombs.
All of a sudden he realized that he was convicted as a criminal and he had heard from his friends how the police will deal with them.The other people that were with him were asking the police:”why are we here and what are you going to do with us?”
One of the officers said:” You are criminals and we will kill you very shortly.”
The man said: “ What have I done to deserve punishment?”
The officer said:” You robbed a Bank.”
The man said:” I did not and I have my family waiting for my return.”
The Officer said:” No more questions.”
There was a round red and empty pool very close to them.He felt the whole room was rotating around him when the police announced:” Go around the pool and stick your heads out in the pool now.”The crowd were moving desperately. Some men and women were crying and some others were screaming with loud voice. Some were looking up and saying: “ God, please help.”
Chan was shocked when he saw a heavy , tall, red striped with black background on a black horse officer with an axe in his right hand was approaching the pool . He knew it was the end of his life and although he was innocent but he thought god was punishing him because he hit his wife He said: I am sorry god. Please forgive me.”A man from the group tried to escape but he was killed by one of the guards on spot.
The officer chopped the heads all the members of the group including Chan. The red blood was pouring in the pool and all over the floor.This was the destiny of a poor and innocent man in China.Did he deserve to be killed with such a violence? Did his wife and his little girl deserved to be left with no support?No, of course not but Life never provides any guarantee for anyone and sometimes the disaster happens without any warning.
