Flood Aftermath, Kaohsiung, Taiwan/馬特拉不拉,我們自己拉!

Flood Aftermath, Kaohsiung, Taiwan/馬特拉不拉,我們自己拉!

碩鼠碩鼠,無食我黍。三歲貫(慣)女(汝),莫我肯顧。
逝將去女,適彼樂土,樂土樂土,爰得我所?
碩鼠碩鼠,無食我麥。三歲貫女,莫我肯德。
逝將去女,適彼樂國,樂國樂國,爰得我直?
碩鼠碩鼠,無食我苗。三歲貫女,莫我肯勞。
逝將去女,適彼樂郊,樂郊樂郊,誰之永號?

詩經《碩鼠

馬特拉不拉,我們自己拉!

伊是咱的寶貝(陳明章):



志工們動作都很快。有人來捐獻物資,很快就能完成任務。照片中這位女士至少是第二次造訪了。離她前一次不久,剛又掉頭回來了。她問:「有沒有人看到一包火鍋湯底?」她把買來自己要吃的菜放在後架上,被志工給搬了!她記得她捐獻的主要是牙膏等個人衛生用品。於是志工們如傳烽火,又如升堂喊堂威般,一路把狀況給喊進大廳。不一會兒,又從裡到外喊出來:「火鍋湯底找到了!」再一會,有位好漢單手高舉一個塑膠袋出現,高喊:「是誰的火鍋湯底?」我們再高喊:「火鍋湯底是這裡的!」送她走時,我開玩笑問她:「還要不要些冷凍牛肉?」她微笑著慈祥地說:「我們全家都吃素。」
Volunteers are all very quick. They always finsh unloading whenever someone come for donation. It is at least the second visit for this lady in the picture, not too long from her first. "Has anyone seen a package of Chinese Hot Pot soup base?" Definitely not something we plan to send into the flood zone. She put her own grocery on the rear rack during her first visit. So we relayed the message into the city hall. Soon came the reply "We found it!" Moments later, a big guy holding a plastic bag high and yelled "Whose soup base is this?" We yelled back "Right here!" As we send the lady away, I asked "Would you like some frozen beef also?" jokingly. She smiled and said "All the members of my family are vegetarians."


Volunteers sorting donated clothes.


These two volunteers are here to tell others what flavours of meal boxes are available, not to guard them.
這兩位志工是在這裡介紹有哪些口味的便當,不是在顧便當的。

Whoever, whenever anyone feels hungry, s/he just help herself/himself here. Two girls asked jokingly "Are this meal box NT$1 (about 3 cents US) per piece? Are they buy-one-get-one-free?"

Come to think about it, this is communism without communists. Everyone offers what they have, and take what they need.

兩個可愛的小姑娘問道:「是不是一個便當一塊錢啊?有沒有買一送一?」

想想,這簡直是沒有共產黨的共產主義:各盡所能,各取所需。
