「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

主尋亡羊歌 ~ There Were Ninety and Nine

主尋亡羊歌 ~ There Were Ninety and Nine




一百隻羊有九十九
緊靠在主身邊
但有一隻遠離羊群
迷路群山之間
遠在荒山空谷徘徊
遠離良牧照顧慈懷
遠離良牧照顧慈懷
There were ninety and nine that safely lay
In the shelter of the fold.
But one was out on the hills away,
Far off from the gates of gold.
Away on the mountains wild and bare.
Away from the tender Shepherd’s care.
Away from the tender Shepherd’s care.


此間主有九十九隻
難道還嫌不夠
良牧回答那隻迷羊
本來是我所有
路徑雖然高低不平
曠野雖遠我必去尋
曠野雖遠我必去尋
Lord, Thou hast here Thy ninety and nine;
Are they not enough for Thee?
But the Shepherd made answer:
This of Mine has wandered away from Me;
And although the road be rough and steep,
I go to the desert to find My sheep,
I go to the desert to find My sheep.





問主山徑沿途血跡
到底從何而來
主說牧人必須流血
迷羊才救得回
問主雙手因何傷裂
主說因為路多荊棘
主說因為路多荊棘
Lord,
whence are those blood drops all the way
That mark out the mountain’s track?
They were shed for one who had gone astray
Ere the Shepherd could bring him back.
Lord,
whence are Thy hands so rent and torn?
They are pierced tonight by many a thorn;
They are pierced tonight by many a thorn.


遠從迅雷轟破之山
穿過危崖絕壁
牧人呼聲直達天門
樂哉亡羊已得
圍繞寶座天使和唱
樂哉主已覓得亡羊
樂哉主已覓得亡羊
And all through the mountains, thunder riven
And up from the rocky steep,
There arose a glad cry to the gate of Heaven,
Rejoice! I have found My sheep!
And the angels echoed around the throne,
Rejoice, for the Lord brings back His own!
Rejoice, for the Lord brings back His own!

歌詞說牧人本有一百隻羊,但有一隻迷失了在山野間,為要找尋迷失了的一隻羊,牧人不辭勞苦,到荒野山間去尋找,直到找到為止。 這是宗教寓意,神愛世人,主差遣使者,尋找還未信主的,要他們信主信教,加入教會,得到拯救。



伸延思考:
令我想起今次四川大地震,受傷的,被困的,死亡的,都不計其數,幸運還未受傷的,並沒有外逃,在地震定了下來後,選擇留下來,拯救受傷的,被困的,頻臨死亡的。全國各地都有人員,前往四川參加救災,在餘震不絕時,軍人,武警,先是打通道路,空降,徒步,去到不能到達的災區,跟著是醫護,各式的救護人員,沿沿開入災區。


有些是受命的,有些是志願的,但都是冒著餘震,冒著生命危險,冒著爆發疫症,去救人救災。今次天災,四川死了近七萬人,傷的數十萬,但因為救人救災,而犧牲了的人員又有幾多呢?


今午新聞證實了十多日前,在四川映秀鎮附近,失縱的救災直升機,機上包括機員,醫護,和受傷災民,據公布共十九名,在墮機范圍已尋回十八具屍體,未能找到的屍體,有可能是數字錯誤,也可能是墮機時的生還者,企圖逃生而離開墮機范圍。


為死難的災民和犧牲了的人員,致予哀悼,並向犧牲人員家屬,致予慰問! my deepest condolences !




後記:
【明報專訊】抗震救災英模事蹟報告團首場報告會周三上午在人民大會堂舉行。

成都軍區某陸航團政委張曉峰在報告中介紹了邱光華機組駕駛的直升機失事的全過程。

張曉峰表示,從成都到理縣的空中航線,被飛行員們稱為「死亡航線」。在這條航線上,儘管我們一次次化險為夷,把「死亡航線」變成了「生命通道」,但不幸還是發生了。邱光華機組上月31日下午奉命運送衛生防疫專家到理縣。返回途中,在汶川縣映秀附近,突遇低雲大霧和強氣流,於下午2時56分不幸失事。機長邱光華、副駕駛李月、機械師王懷遠、陳林、士官張鵬5人及14名搭乘人員失蹤。

張曉峰說,當天上午邱光華機組已飛了兩個架次,考慮到運送的是著名專家,團裏決定由邱光華機組執行此次任務。當時,正值午飯時間,邱光華和機組人員匆匆吃了兩口飯,就駕機飛赴理縣。這是他們執行的第64次救災任務。從理縣返航約半小時後,直升機進入銀杏至映秀上空。這裏山高谷深,有的地方兩山間的空隙還不到300米。

張曉峰迴憶道,午後的山區,天氣變化迅速。直升機進入山谷不久,突然出現大片濃雲密霧,一下遮蔽了這個狹窄的通道。「不要動,看下航向!」這是邱光華留下的最後的聲音,接著就從通信信號中消失了。

張曉峰說,機長邱光華,是中國軍隊第一代少數民族飛行員,今年51歲,是該陸航團資歷最老、經驗最豐富的特級飛行員,已安全飛行5800多小時。這次救災,團裏本安排他負責地面指揮,但他主動請戰,堅決要求參加飛行,此時離停飛待退只有半年時間了。

王懷遠,是團裏最出色的空中機械師,大家都喜歡和他搭檔飛行,不久前還承諾救災任務完成後,要接腿有殘疾的弟弟到成都治療。陳林和李月今年都不滿30歲,陳林的女兒剛過完1歲生日,因參加救災沒能在女兒的第一個生日送個蛋糕。李月今年春節才結婚,新婚的愛人在救災的每一天,都在等著他平安的短信。士官張鵬在救災期間,遞交了入黨申請書,執行任務前他給媽媽打電話,讓家裏人別為他擔心。

張曉峰說,5名戰友雖然離去了,但他們的英勇壯舉正激勵著全團官兵,全力奮戰在抗震救災第一線。截止上周四,已緊急飛行1799架次,成功搶運傷員1121人,運送急需物資615噸,轉運被困群眾2171人,保障中央和軍委首長視察災區16架次,創造了中軍隊陸航史上超強度、超氣象飛行的紀錄。

There is faith in religion; and there is also faith in human beings. The two are not necessarily exclusive.
