Common Heros: Lin Hao

9 years old Lin Hao was an elementary school student in Yinshui County. He didn't just run for safety when the earthquake struck, but carried a classmate who was hit to unconscious from the rubble, then went back to carry out another classmate who was unconscious out to safety. He was hit on his shoulder the second time.

A hero indeed!
I am sure I am not the only one watching the opening ceremonies of the 2008 Olympics who was moved to tears when I heard his story.
May this little survivor be blessed with only good fortune for the rest of his life!
