Do you remember when Batman sneaked into the Lower Primary classroom of Yew Wah International School of Rizhao? Well it seems he was not the only superhero to wander by. Other real life ‘heroes’ were interviewed by students this week, giving them a peek into the ordinary lives of extraordinary people.
As luck would have it, we were able to talk with a policeman and a doctor. Both have been working on the frontlines to protect people and save lives. They answered students' questions via video. We are very grateful for their earnest attention and sincere answers that opened up their everyday lives to scrutiny.
Children learned that policemen are not afraid of guns. They use their weapons – but only as a last resort – to save innocent people from harm as well as to protect their comrades and to fight crime. The policeman we interviewed said everyone could become a hero by making an effort.
The class learned that the doctor used her experience and knowledge to save the lives of many people each day who were suffering from various diseases. However, being human, she too sometimes gets sick just like everyone else.
Doctors, policemen, firefighters, and scientists all use their skills to help others. Every student can become a hero if he or she has a heart that wishes to serve mankind.
