下面是参与活动的部分同学写下的心得体会:

-- 陈早琳

Having several similar experiences, though, I still expect this library tour before the day. To me, slight sight is fairly miserable and unfair. They can not discover the beauty of the world and even their relatives, their true loves. Therefore, it’s glad for me having been distributed this task--to help them, indeed.

 

With mix feelings, including excitement, sympathy and anxiety, I reached the gathering plot at our agreed time. There were already stood the people I need to take care. They seemed so normal, hardly could I imaged they were almost blind. Moreover, each of them always wears a big smile on faces that touch my heart.

 

On our way to the library, many times, when they grasped the corner of my clothes, I was struck. At that moment, I guess, we have empathy that I knew their fright about this unknown world. It reminded me that my elementary school teachers ever told us, “Sight to people is what water to fish” until then, I discovered that I bore responsibility.

 

Similarly, 2 years ago, I took a temporary assistant in an infantile Autism school. I had heard so many times that my grandma said they should be how talented children but I never touched their darked world. Thus, just when the boy “Qiqi” hold me tightly and cried, “Sister, I’m fear!” I really understood their weak. They revealed their fear to me totally.

 

Come to our new library, I had confessed that its perfect equipments and careful regulations shock me. According to the open time, we can’t be allowed into the library before 9:00. But we were so, thanks for the humane of that library. Caring the disabled people is our duties. Protecting them could make our community more harmony and stable.

 Last Sunday, I took part in a voluntary activity to help the people who have  inconvenience seeing the world. Experiencing guiding the special old people, I and my friend Robert have learnt a lot.

 

At the beginning, I felt a bit nervous when we were waiting them, because I have no experience about taking care of these people. Nevertheless, when we were guiding one of them, a slim old man, I was impressed by his optimistic and gritty inspirit. On the way to the new library, if there are special road for the blind, or not corner, he can walk by himself easily. Otherwise, he was very voluble through all the way, and didn’t like a person who has some disability.

 

Between our conversations, what impressed me most is he said that, if he doesn’t walk outdoor usually, he may be afraid of walking outside forever, and if his destination is far away, it is very inconvenient for him to go without other’s help. Hearing his words, I feel how inconvenient life this people live and how essential other’s help they need.

 

After this activity, I gained a lot of society experience. The most important I learned is, as a citizen, how to take our social responsibility in hand to help the disadvantageous crowd.

  I haven’t attended to any volunteer activity since senior 3. Last Sandy, as a volunteer, I participated in a volunteer activity held by my institution.  It was about taking care of unable people to make sure they enjoy the activity. People we ministered to were blind or nearly blind, they were invited to “watch” a movie in a brand new library. They don’t watch, they listen to the movie. The movie was processed, by adding a narrative description to its possessions. So even though they aren’t able to watch, they can listen to it.

Most of them are old people, with each holding a stick in hand. We met them at the metro station, took them to the library and settled them down. I tendered my voice and asked them to inform me if they need something. To my surprise, although they walk in a wagging and slow pace, talk slowly with a little trembling sound, they are not as vulnerable as I think they are. First I felt pretty sorry about them, but then I realized, they are not different, they don’t want to be treat like unable which they really are, they have their dignities. So I respect them, try not to show too much sympathy.

During the movie, everybody was quiet, the narrator’s idea was great, and people were drawn into the movie. Evan we volunteers were sometime appealed by the movie, but it didn’t actually distract us, we had to focus on the audience.

After the movie, with gratitude they walked backed to the metro station with us. We sent them onto the train and watched them left. It is impressing for me that the blinds, they even seemed to be happier than us. Maybe the obstacle in their lives drives their pessimism away. It was quite a profound day for me. Things I learned are pretty hard to express.

On the fist day of September, I went to Guangzhou Library with my classmates to accompany people with visual-disability to watch a film called “Beginning of the great vicinal”. Before the projection, we collected personal information from the disabled, which strengthened our ability to communicate with others in a proper and respectful manner. At first, I was astonished. How could a blind person “see” a film? But after the projection, I realized that the film was specialized. In order to satisfy the disabled, this film added lots of narrative, describing plots and characters in film.

 

In addition, during the film, we also had to pay attention whether some of our disabled friends would tend to go to the lavatory. This requirement really challenged my carefulness, and I was conscious about how difficult to take care of others.

 

After this experience, I gathered two previous virtues. First is respect, second is carefulness. I think these two characters can help me reach a higher mental altitude and make me to be a “real” human.

To “see” things through their eyes

When hearing about the volunteering job, I felt indifferent at the first time, considering it to be a no-brainer for the certifications, or to say, a pretention.

I hardly did volunteering jobs in my life time and frankly, I’m not the type of a compassionate person. As a nerd who always detaches me from the society, I have little understanding of the REAL world and the reason why so many people enjoy themselves in volunteering.

So I took part in this activity to seek for answers. The activity was about accompanying the handicapped people (most of them are either blind or deaf) to the Guangzhou Library where we began watching a customized movie for those special groups. Clumsy and ignorant was I during the whole trip--I didn’t know how to communicate with the granny in need beside me but my friend, instead, chatted with her volubly and took care of her along the way to the lib.; During the movie time, I was supposed to give the people in need a hand but I was set aback by my own fear, which is a child-like timidity towards the people I’m not familiar with.

Although there were no scales estimating my performance in the activity, seeing the girls helping those papas and grannies here and there and me and other two boys staying clumsy and lackadaisical, I would definitely flunk in this “test” if there were a criterion.

However, the activity was not that meaningless for me. I have thought a lot for the trip. First of all, the movie was awesome for fostering my patriotic and love for the socialism. Also, I have learned the mechanism of how to make movies suitable for the special groups that is speaking out loud the plots if people can’t see the screen clearly, and using the deaf language-this is how the handicapped people see the world. -- God shuts one door but he opens an other window at the same time. These people are not as limited as we think. They can walk on the street with their own tool, they can take part in various social activities, and they can “see” things like we do!

Seeing things through their eyes, I discovered a brand-new world full of hope and also the longing for our everybody’s concern for them. I think, maybe, from the bottom of their hearts, there’s seldom a state of ideal happiness, often it is a mixture of hope and despair, madness and sanity, repleteness and longing, perhaps duplicated in all of us.

We are all solitary planets in the universe, sometimes whirl, sometimes collapse, and sometimes fade, playing different roles in different places. We might be angels now, but how can we make sure that we are going to be devils next time. So the ultimate thing we need to do is to see things through other people’s eyes, surprises our inner recklessness and make a better understanding of the whole world.

Life is a prison, and only love and care can open its doors.

Last Sunday, I took part in the activity to help the sight-disabled person to enjoy a wonderful journey in the film called “Jean Dang Wei Ye” in the GZ library. I and my friends were touched deeply.

That day morning, we help them go from the metro to the library. We  reminded them of the block on the pavement. Once I said there was a water pipe on his way. He first stopped for a while, touched the ground with hand stick, and at last tried to get over the pipe which was such a thin one.

We helped them to go to the restroom in the special cinema in the library and helped them back to the underground station then.

 I found how sad they are.

I have learnt a lot after doing a volunteer job on Sunday. Helping blind people to find the way, talking about their ordinary life is something that I had never imagines, but this job gave me the opportunity to do so. After that, my  view towards the world changed.

 

I arrived to the metro station on time that morning and trying to my bumping heart by chatting with my friends. About 20 minutes later, serval blind people went out of the station, most of them wearing the sunglasses and with a crutch in their hand, just took exactly like the blind man in the TV shows. At that moment, I was shocked by them. I can’t believe that they can go outside without any help but their crutch and acute ears; I can’t believe that they can still keep optimistic and talked to each other happily; and I can’t believe that they are even more love their life than the people who can see the wonderful world. Because they were talking, laughing, and keep thanking us for bring them to the cinema. Something secretly changed in my heart.

 

I have been looking forward for a whole week for the movie that especially for blind and deaf people. So after giving our guests some soymilk and cake, the movie started. I can’t find any difference after a 5 minutes of confusing. I found that some description of the scene and the background was spoken out liberty and a person doing sign language in the corner of the scene. I thought that people who invited this kind of movie was very smart and warm hearted. With the methods like this, every people can share the same exciting movie together.

 

Suddenly, an old woman raised her hand that means she needs helps. So I rushed to her and asked her if she need anything. She said she want to use the bathroom. So I lead her and her friend to the bathroom. I can suddenly feel the duty on my shoulder because heavier. On the way to the bathroom, she thanked us for a few times and I can just say” you’re welcome” and we talked about the movie and something about her life. And

I found that she is optimistic, enthusiastic to life and full of wisdom. It totally broke my opinion towards blind people.

 

After the movie, I head a man to the metro station, I told him go “left” right” and “forward” instead of “here” and “there”. I think the unconcerned direction make them feel unsafe. And I really enjoyed the conversation on the way to the metro.

 

Communicating with blind people for a whole morning, I learnt that blind of their eyes didn’t close the window of their heart and make them prone to be brokenhearted, and I have to appreciate my life because I am a healthy person that can see and hear and feel the beautiful world. I have to enjoy my life even more than they could. What’s more, no prejudge to the disabled people.
