Say your identity

Mentality and emotion determine how far you go.

Xiangyang County is a famous revolutionary old district. In order to let future generations remember the deeds of the martyrs, the local government specially built a memorial hall behind the martyrs cemetery, which is free to visitors.

At two o’clock this afternoon, a 60-year-old man from the memorial hall was asked to visit. Several people in the guard room were chatting and laughing. When they saw a visitor, they had to stop playing. One of the men in their forties who had a black hair on their face frowned and asked, “Is there an ID card?” The old man said “with”, and even after groping for a while in his pocket, he finally pulled out his ID card and two train tickets. He handed the ID card into the window of the guard room with a little prudence and asked: “Comrade, now I am Can you go in?”

When language dies

Endangered languages are a global phenomenon. According to UNESCO’s latest Atlas of Endangered Languages, there are 7,000 languages in the world, of which more than half will die out in this century and 80% ~ 90% will die out in the next 200 years. In contrast, the extinction rate of animals and plants is much slower.

Language is dying out much faster than people think – on average, every two weeks, one language disappears without a sound.

Although China is not in a hot spot where languages are in danger, Dr. Huang Chenglong of the Institute of Minority Languages of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences said that China has 129 languages, of which more than half are of low vitality and at least 20 or 30 languages are in danger, such as Ainu in Yunnan, Hezhe in the northeast, Tata in Xinjiang, Yugu in Gansu and Tujia in the middle.

What is the total blood volume of people all over the world?

For this question, you may keep saying that just tell me the amount of blood of a single person multiplied by the total number of people in the world to get the answer. But what if you don’t know how much blood is in your body? At this time, we can consider the scene when donating blood. Ordinary people often donate 200 to 400 milliliters of blood at a time. The ” lost amount” of blood is definitely safe for healthy people. Therefore, let’s roughly think that the amount of blood donated at one time is equivalent to 10% of the total blood volume, so the blood volume in each of us is 2,000 to 4,000 milliliters, multiplied by 7 billion people in the world, and the total blood volume of all people is 1.4 trillion to 2.8 trillion milliliters!

living his own life

Live your life. Not someone else’s life. You don’t have to live to please or cater to others. Sometimes, especially when other people’s expectations coincide with our own interests, pandering to others is beyond reproach. Of course, it is not inevitable. Live your own life, do things according to your conscience, be kind to yourself, and serve those for whom you are willing to take responsibility.

For example, I have a wife and children, so no matter how tempting the idea of spending a year in the grand canyon is, I will not give up my job. However, even at home, I must do things according to my conscience and be kind to myself. At home, I am duty-bound to take care of my family and support my children. At such times, the best thing for me is to fulfill my duty and keep my promise to my family, and I am exactly such a person. I will not pack up my backpack and walk away. I have never had such an idea.
