Of the many photographs I took in Beijing, this group of shots haunts me until now. Taken outside a big government hospital (probably an equivalent of our Philippine General Hospital), one would think such a scenario would be far-fetched. After all, China is now the world's second largest economy, surpassing jealous Japan weeks ago. China also operates on a socialist premise, and that would lead one to think that scenes like these are impossible. But it is the sad reality. The woman's arms are sunburned, and she grows weary everyday.
La réalité triste est qu'on peut encore prier pour que l'aide et la pitié soit traitée en dehors d'un grand hôpital de gouvernement. C'est Pékin rentré, Chine, il y a quelques semaines.
