I personally cannot relate his story to my weight loss struggles since my motivation is so completely selfish and he essentially gave his life for his country but it was good to read a story of selfless love for one's own country especially after reading some horrible stories currently making the news about how there is little value of human life found in China currently but maybe there are still a few people like him still willing to fight for a cause and maybe we as Americans need to remember this story when we are voting for a city council member or for the president because i think the only thing more harmful than ignorance is apathy in the voting booth.
Thank you for this article! I know some feel tha it is not related to weight loss, but I believe it can be related to any struggle you have in your life. I just got back from grocery shopping and ran into a friend of my ex (he trashes me to everyone). I said hello to the woman and tried not to think about what awful tales he has told her about me. I kept reminding myself that there is nothing I can do about it, but this story reminded me to stand tall and persevere through this trial, my weight loss journey, and every trial to come. Thank you again for this article!

What a remarkable article to find on a weight loss site! Thank you so much for reminding us that it's the WHOLE person that needs healing in this quest and I'm grateful for the insight into Wei's life.
Wei is more admired than those now protesting about Wall Street...some of those have no clue why they are there. They attend big schools and have everything paid for by their parents or getting grants from those they protest!
I like what REJ7777 wrote. Articles like this are great contributions to our health and fitness goals. I ain't on the healthy & fit kick to just be healthy & fit- I have a passion to serve the world through my creative self. Thank you.
