Thank you for sharing this.
What a touching and inspiring story. Thank you for sharing.
Such an inspirational story!
This story brings tears to my eyes. What a remarkable man. Thanks SP for sharing his story!
That should be: make my heart swell with joy. Don't know what happened.
I would hope I'd have the same courage of Wei (sp?). He makes my hearty sweet with pride in his actions and attitude. Americans can learn a lot from this brave man and his convictions.
Very good article, makes you wonder what you would do if presented with the same circumstances. Thank You for sharing this article.
Thanks for sharing this article!
I personally cannot relate his story to my weight loss struggles since my motivation is so completely selfish and he essentially gave his life for his country but it was good to read a story of selfless love for one's own country especially after reading some horrible stories currently making the news about how there is little value of human life found in China currently but maybe there are still a few people like him still willing to fight for a cause and maybe we as Americans need to remember this story when we are voting for a city council member or for the president because i think the only thing more harmful than ignorance is apathy in the voting booth.
This is a great testament to the power of vision and motivation.
thought I was reading from "human rights watch" for a second-it's a big stretch comparing someone's life and death struggle with our piddly concerns about weight loss.
This is real drive and courage.
Thank you for this article! I know some feel tha it is not related to weight loss, but I believe it can be related to any struggle you have in your life. I just got back from grocery shopping and ran into a friend of my ex (he trashes me to everyone). I said hello to the woman and tried not to think about what awful tales he has told her about me. I kept reminding myself that there is nothing I can do about it, but this story reminded me to stand tall and persevere through this trial, my weight loss journey, and every trial to come. Thank you again for this article!
What a remarkable article to find on a weight loss site! Thank you so much for reminding us that it's the WHOLE person that needs healing in this quest and I'm grateful for the insight into Wei's life.
