Comments from Sina Weibo:

琥珀里的犀牛:

I will never forget that person who pulled me out from the doorway of a store during the 2008 Earthquake. Just as I was pulled out, a rock fell down…

小坦克tk:

Let me share a domestic one. When I take the public bus in Qingdao, if it is too full, you need to enter from the rear door, and then have the people around you pass the money or transit card up to the front to the fare collection box. Every time there are people willing to help you.

仙人涨小姐:

If one day we can open the comments to a microblog post and there aren’t so many “this is all in other countries”, “it isn’t so beautiful domestically in our country” type of comments, I will feel this world is very beautiful… Actually, you only lack the eye for noticing the beautiful. Recently with so many stories of kind people in the cold or lost property, they too are very heartwarming! Those with narrow mentalities cannot see the beautiful. Even if the beautiful were collected and put in front of you, you would still separate their nationality.

Lapppo:

What I am most most most moved by are the people in the restroom who lend me a sanitary towel [menstrual pad, tampon] when my period suddenly comes. [笑cry][笑cry][笑cry] I really am so thankful. At that moment, I just want to fall to my knees and thank the greatness of humanity [empathy]. [笑cry][笑cry][笑cry]

请叫我章鱼哥0:

Actually our country also has many things like this. I remember once when I had just graduated from school and began working. I gave my seat to an old granny who at a red light stuffed a piece of candy in my hand. I won’t say I ate the candy, but the wrapper has been in my wallet/purse ever since, for many years now.

青袂_要减肥做人生赢家:

Really, it truly frightening how distorted the mentality/perspectives are of those who put down the Heavenly Kingdom. [拜拜]

杨楠SINGING:

Not all the beautiful must be found in these photos. Our country is also very beautiful. [呵呵] Really.

回忆专用小马甲:

Truly good.

闪避智障:

Those in the comments subconsciously putting down the Heavenly Kingdom, if you personally practice what you preach in your lives, then the Heavenly Kingdom will also become very beautiful.

鱼蓝闭关中:

I believe our Heavenly Kingdom also has many heartwarming moments.

Vonss:

One time when I took the public bus, there was a passenger who boarded but did not have change, and I immediately took out two kuai [RMB], which he took and then… nothing… the passenger nonchalantly found a place to sit, without even a word of thanks. Sometimes some people don’t know to be grateful, but my heart was still quite happy to have helped someone.

K-柒爷:

Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get. — Forrest Gump.

伪宅小洁:

I just knew the comments for this kind of microblog post would have “this is all in other countries, it would never happen in China” type comments. Motherfucking, if you’re going to worship the foreign, then worship the foreign, but don’t drag China into it or represent Chinese people. You fucking don’t have the right to represent Chinese people. China has good people and good things, positive energy [positivity, positive acts], but have you forwarded/reshared them before? Commented about them before? Upvoted/liked them before? Oh! Yes, you have commented before, but I bet your comment was: “This is probably a publicity stunt! This is probably just putting on a show!”

荒人手记_:

Am I the only one who noticed this? Why did the firefighter have to risk his life to save a cat? No matter how important that cat is to that granny, but when everyone was given life by parents, for what reason was a cat’s life placed above that of a person’s life?

躺着中枪的熊猫:

[求关注][求关注] May god protect all of these kindhearted people.

Help chinaSMACK continue sharing glimpses into Chinese internet culture and trends by becoming a patron. Thank you!

Fauna is a mysterious young Shanghainese girl who lives in the only place a Shanghainese person would ever want to live: Shanghai. In mid-2008, she started chinaSMACK to combine her hobby of browsing Chinese internet forums with her goal of improving her English. Through her tireless translation of popular Chinese internet news and phenomenon, her English has apparently gotten dramatically better. At least, reading and writing-wise. Unfortunately, she's still not confident enough to have written this bio, about herself, by herself.
