Care & Compassion in China

What’s happened to China?

THE fate of a toddler left comatose after being knocked down by a van in a market – with her mangled body run over by a second vehicle and ignored by 18 passers-by – has prompted an outpouring of soul-searching and self-revulsion across China…

“… dissect their brains and see  what medicine the Communist Party has been feeding us to make them like the walking dead,” wrote one widely forwarded post on the Chinese equivalent of Twitter…  The 57-year-old rag collector who finally moved her ran from shop to shop to find the toddler’s parents and was repeatedly told to mind her own business.  (Andrew Bolt)

“My entire family went to prison. Some were taken to the mountains; others were put in different labor camps all because of my grandfather’s one mistake: he escaped to South Korea during the Korean War… One time a mother put her 9-year-old daughter in this big cast iron pot and boiled her. She was a too big for the pot so the mother had to chop her legs and head to fit the body in the pot… It is hard to talk about but I want the world to see these images and to hear my testimony.”
