									In the soaring prices today, a 94 year-old man, sitting alone on the streets. Every day the sale
of hand-sewn cotton insoles, in exchange for a meager 3,4 dollars to maintain the same
meager life.


Old urban centers in Xiamen, Siming East Road, Siming cinema next to the street (formerly
CCB Si East Point public housing centers or municipal housing bureau stores on the street),
there has been a 94-year-old woman, in this perennial swing stall selling her own
hand-stitched cotton insole.


Insole with seven sewing cotton, asking price is only 2 yuan a pair. I went to the end of buying
her a pair of insoles, to give her 2 yuan, she would also like sending me a pair.


I understand that she was 94 years old (born 1914), we insisted that she should not buy one
get one, as long as she paid. She kept saying thank you!


Today (February 28, 2008 at noon) I just took to the streets with a camera and asked her
whether her camera? She is willing to promise, but he still stood up specially photographed
one.




From the end of last year know that there has been a 94-year-old woman is still a small
business one after, and my heart has been very sigh: Compared to the roadside begging for
help to those in the knees of young people, the 94-year-old woman is indeed a great enough !


Originally, I look at her outfit quite clean, thought she was nothing but old people idle, do a little
business fun of it?


Today, her photographs, the way a bit before we know that she is to make a decent
living!Erupted in so I was floored!


A 94-year-old woman also to make a living on the roadside selling home-made insoles? ! This
is really - I was very heavy, I do not know how to express my feelings at this time?


I went on the market next bought her - hanging bananas, asked that she do for lunch? She
went so far as to say "do not want to eat"! She said she is only a month to the two hundred
dollars neighborhood relief, while the children and grandchildren to make a living because of
the difficulties, and put two hundred dollars Naqu to pay rent (public housing), she had earned
a day by selling insole 3,5 yuan a little money for subsistence is a poor food year round!


- Bit 94-year-old elderly poor food year round!


I held back the tears, bought her a bowl of noodles feeding paste, and she immediately
followed suit thanks to sending me insole also repeatedly said that it no longer cotton insoles
do not buy in! Because she had too old, no longer able to continue sewing insoles in person,
only that some insoles sold out, be gone!


I asked her not to sell after the insoles how to do? She shook her head sighing did not know
how to do?
