National Library Opening ~ 国家图书馆

i shot this on 17 July 2005. those are not national day’s commando performing. they are cleaners. these days, you need the brains, brawns and courage to be a cleaner. soon such creme de la creme of cleaners shall have their own motto: For cleaness and money. they could even have their own commandoCleaner Emblem such as the Winged mop. they would also have the stiletto broom with the commando cleaner symbol struck on it to denote the elite status. cool right?!?! now parents cannot say,”you dont study hard. next time go and be a cleaner!” so, dont look down on cleaners. please greet them “good morning” and say “thank you” when they help to clear your wastepaper basket of paper, crushed in frustration.

这是我于2005年7月17日照的。这不是国庆日突击队员的表演。他们是清洁工人。这个年头,想过清洁工人都得身精百战。不久的将来,这些鼎尖的清洁工人将有自己的口令:为环境清洁与金钱。他们还可能有自己的辉张,如一个带翅膀的拖把和一个带有印章的扫把,以区别自己的鼎尖身份。很酷吧!到那时,父母可不能再说:“不好好读书,以后去做扫地的!”所以还是别看不起清洁工人。早上要说早安,当他们替你倒垃圾时,可要说“谢谢”!

    whatever a person’s station in life, there’s always dignity in an honest day’s work. these are the people without whom the nation’s gleaming high-rise and clean streets would not exist…

    hopefully more people are thinking your way. i cant help but to observe the negative side of things. who bothers to thank the old lady who comes around their workdesk to clear their trashbins?? who had smiled in appreciation to the cleaning lady in the toilet? they are the invisible little elves in our lives that everyone forgets.

    all the best!!

    cheerio,
    yl.
