Sanitation worker nuzzles granddaughter on street, the brief tender moment of true love captured becoming famous on the internet
Internet post: Happiness and one’s position in society are unrelated
June 3rd, evening, Jin Yunzhong posted a photograph titled “Happiness” on the Fengniao.com discussion forum, featuring an elderly man wearing a sanitation worker vest sitting on the cement wall beside a roadside green belt, his hands cupping the face of a young girl, the two of them smiling and laughing as they touched their noses together.
The poster at the same time said that city cleaners/sanitation workers belong to a group of people who are considered at a very low level of society, who often are discriminated against, and even face safety risks. However, they have their own happiness, and as his grandchild sits on his knees kissing him, a smile and happiness is instantly written across his face.
Comments from Mop:
Happiness has no conditions.
Sanitation workers are also people…without them, we would be living in piles of garbage.
Wish them happiness~ The small touching moments in our lives are often the most real!
The greatest people in China are these people at the bottom/grassroots level of society.Without them, could the people above so comfortably eat, drink, and be merry?
Respect for the hardworking people of any profession.
The most real [genuine, sincere] is the most moving.
My eyes are blurred with tears from looking at these.
What a touching moment!
Such sincerity cannot be purchased no matter how rich one is!!
Looking at this photograph I’ve truly began shedding tears, so touching.
This kind of simple happiness is exactly what Chinese society is lacking these days. Everything has become about the material. Going to any lengths for [material] benefit/gain.
Tender moments. Personals @ chinaSMACK.
