A noble heart

  On the morning of December 18, 2009, Guo Dongrong, the scavenger old man in Sancha Road Village, Tieshan District, Huangshi City, Hubei Province, walked through the dewdrops on the winter morning and walked through the scavenging roads. For the old woman who is over 70 years old, this is just the beginning of an ordinary day. However, an unexpected embarrassment makes this day unusual in her life.

  When she walked as she went to the Jianlin Mountain not far from home, she suddenly found a plastic bag with a sac in the roadside ditch. She thought it was the waste that others had left on the side of the road. After opening it, she found that it was a big bag of money.

  Guo Laotai took the bag full of money and took it for more than an hour. She finally saw the police on duty at the Tieshan Public Security Bureau. The police and the old man counted the money together, for a total of 7,000 yuan. Guo Laotai went to the scene with the police on duty to conduct an investigation, and then returned to the bureau together, and made a record according to the regulations.

  After all the formalities have been completed, it is already more than 9 o’clock in the morning. At this time, Guo Laotai was very embarrassed to say to the police on duty: “Comrade, I have not eaten breakfast yet, can you lend me a dollar, I buy two hoes to eat?”

  All the police officers present were shocked. They had tears in their eyes and they rushed to the pockets of the old people. But the old man insisted on borrowing only one yuan. She said: “With only one dollar for two gimmicks, you are going to find the owner and return the money to others!”

  In the face of money, there are people who are arrogant and arrogant, and those who swindle and swindle have it. The 70-year-old wife Guo Dongrong accidentally won a huge sum of money during the scavenging. Although she was cold and hungry at the time, she did not hesitate to hand over the money to the police. She would rather borrow a dollar for breakfast and never greed. one cent. She walked for more than an hour, just to find a “police uncle”; survey, transcript, two hours of tossing, just “to return the money to others as soon as possible.”

  7,000 yuan, I believe that anyone will have an instant heart, let alone a scavenger. That’s right, Guo Dongrong is a scavenger. She lacks money, and she has two dollars for her. This is a simple breakfast. She doesn’t even have the money to buy. 7,000 yuan, in her eyes is undoubtedly an astronomical number, this money is enough for her to eat 20 years of breakfast. However, she did not move at all. Because for her, this is an ill-gotten wealth. If she is alone, she will be uneasy because she knows that the careless owner may be eager to find it. This money may be a The entire income of the migrant workers’ brothers who have worked hard for one year, or the tuition fee of a farmer’s father who sells iron for his son or daughter, or even a life-saving patient who is sick in bed…

  7,000 yuan, over 70 years old, scavenging old lady, one dollar, two gimmicks, this is the most touching story of 2009 at the end of the year, it allows me to witness the nobleness of the soul and feel the humanity in this cold winter. The warmth.
