陶臻 I 迎着疫情逆行而上

写给逆行而上的送货人 

目前,疫情猖獗,冠状病毒正在侵袭美國,来势凶猛,势态堪忧!当下,居家隔离,停止人们的聚集活动,大部分人在家照顾家庭或在家上班。然而,有一小部分人为了城市基本运转,不得不逆行而上,其中就有医生、警察和保证食品供应的逆行而上的人,还有我们社区的逆行而上的送口罩人。现在外出就意味着风险和危险,有被感染病毒的可能性。

華人華僑捐助明細

坦率地说,人们直接面临生与死抉择的危急时刻是不多的。终身难忘的是69年我在安徽贵池殷家汇对口劳动,接受工人阶级再教育,当打眼放炮的山地工。一次处理哑炮,一个有好奇心的同学在我的头边剥雷管,我下意思的猛然抓住他的手,算是救了我们山地组的7条人命。至今想起来还十分后怕。这虽然都关系生死,但是被动的。

而在疫情期间,那些逆行而上的人却是主动请战!她们不知道当前严重的传染病毒吗?她们知道!她们不知道有风险吗?她们知道!她们不知道不仅自己有可能被传染,还可能危及家人吗?她们知道!她们是明知山有虎,却偏要向虎山行!她们眼里看到的是亚利桑那疫情的严重,看到的是许多医生给病人看病时,许多警察执勤时没有口罩,或没有质量合格的口罩,她们想到了个人和家庭的安危,更想到了战斗在抗疫最前线的白衣天使和人民安全的守护神。

她们在大疫面这种公而忘私,先人后己,无私奉献崇高品质和高尚的内心世界,这种坦荡胸怀的高风亮节实在令人敬佩。我们社区的华人朋友和本地区的广大市民都会永远记住她们!人是要有一点精神的,人是有爱心和情感的,特别是在特别时刻,要有逆行而上,该出手时就出手的大无畏的担当气势和魄力!患难时刻见真情,好男儿、好女儿就成长在、出现在风口浪尖上,时势造就了英雄!

    这些逆行而上送货人的壮举,不是一时的冲动,而是有大爱之心。心中有爱,情里有感,身就会动。在关键时刻之所以能挺身而出,是因为她们心怀大爱!在我们社区的那些捐款人,不是仅在一次“接龙“上相识,而是多次相见:那些逆行而上的送货人也不是一次送货,而是多次出征。

像我们义工团队的 Connie W是我们团队第一个送货人之一,而且还多次送口罩上门,就在我写这篇文章的时候,她又报名参加给警察送午饭的义工团队。像她这样的义工,我们群有许多,别的群有许多,我们社区有更多!他们是我们社区的精英。在大疫大灾面前,他们一事当前为公为民为他人。她们是因情而动,心之所想,由爱而发,为爱行动!

    小时候,听大人讲过许多英雄的故事,也非常崇拜英雄。这次在支援家乡和家园抗疫的战斗中,我们华人忙了上半场,又忙下半场。我亲眼看到了我们华人华侨勇于担当的英雄形象。她们就在我们身边!特别是在我们巾帼志愿者—-我们凤凰城地区的红色娘子军团里,她们顶起了我们社区义工团队的大半个天!她们用实际行动,书写着可歌可泣的故事,丰富和充实着我们时代的英雄谱。                    

  我们可能彼此不认识,但都是为了共同的心愿而走到了一起。我们向这些正在做着不平凡事情的平凡的人们致敬,感恩有你也有她!

    俗话说,一花独放不是春。万紫千红才是春!在我们这个号称有5万华人之多的社区里,如果人人都能关爱社区,献出自己的爱,那会是一个多么激动人心的大好情景,整个华人社区也会因爱而变成美好的人间!

We’re proud to honor all Veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces and this Memorial Day, we’d like to introduce a few of Chandler’s own.

Listen in as local Veterans share their stories. Hear from Lew Bradley, who joined the U.S. Marine Corps in 1950 at the age of 17; Bill Berry, who enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1966 and fought in the Vietnam War; and Ashley McWhirt, who has been serving in the Marines for 12 years – both active duty and reserves. She currently works as a police records clerk with the Chandler Police Department

Also featured are two exhibits currently on display at the Chandler Museum.


• The “A Million Acts of Kindness” exhibit, which showcases the work of The Salvation Army USA and explores the services provided to the troops and how Salvation Army volunteers provided aid on the home front. 
• The “Chandler Veterans: DUTY” exhibit, which is a traveling banner exhibit that pays tribute to Veterans from the Chandler community who have served in every branch of the military. 

The video also includes a musical performance by Blaine Long and messages from Mayor Kevin Hartke and City Council.
