见证改变 见证奇迹

此次我与九名成都中医药大学的志愿者来到了广元利州区社会福利院;其实这次已经是我的第二次来到利州区社会福利院了。两年前我曾经来这里搞过一次以魔术为主题的夏令营活动。自从我那次来到了这里后,我就与这里的孩子结下了不解之缘,所以,两年过后,我又回来啦。

这次回来这里后,看到这里的住宿条件,电子设备,都有了显著的提高;看到了不少熟悉的面孔,同时也出现了不少新面孔。一个个老面孔们都又长高了不少;上次送给他们的魔术道具,除了两年时间带来的锈迹斑斑,仍然被妥善保存着。

虽然我是一个见证奇迹的魔术师;但是,我来这里最大的收获却是见证他们一点点的改变。无论是两年前到今天的改变,还是本次活动第一天到最后一天的改变;见证着他们的进步,我这次就没有白来。

两年前我在这儿结识的孩子们见到我后立即变得如胶似漆。何开建,樊燕,俞澜, 成师亿 还有我总是叫他小名“尔康”的张洪均,这次听说我要回来,他们都特别高兴继续回来参加本次夏令营活动。尤其是尔康,年幼时的经历把他造就成了一个非常孤僻的小孩。人多的时候他经常会出于恐惧躲到沙发后面桌子下面藏起来,脸上永远都闷闷不乐,除了一次在我的魔术表演上,我从来没有见过他的笑容。 两年前那次夏令营活动结束后尔康屡次哭着打电话给福利院想再见到我们。然而这次我再见到尔康的时候,他已不再是当年那个躲到沙发后面的尔康。今年这个不再躲起来的尔康处处透露着童真和可爱。 反而第一天大家开见面会的时候有个新来的小朋友躲到了沙发后面,抢走了尔康的“头衔”。

新来的孩子里也有见谁都自来熟的,这些孩子当然都给我留下了深刻的印象。那些不说话的孩子同样也给我留下了深刻的印象。比如第一天见面会上就有两个孩子,一个跟我装聋子听不见我说话,一个跟我装哑巴不说话。他们俩是谁我就不点名了。起初我还真以为他们是聋哑人。不过“哑巴同学”看了我的魔术表演后,在吃饭的时候看着我笑一笑 然后继续吃饭,再看着我笑一笑 继续吃饭,最后他终于憋不住了 吐出了五个字:“你的……魔术棍……”。另一个“聋子”同学一开始也是徐庶进曹营一言不发,不过在一次我表演魔术穿帮的时候他对我说了第一句话“我看到那个了”。我觉得既然我的魔术能让他们开口说第一句话,就算穿帮了也值了。几天过后他们彻底融入了我们这个福利院的大家庭,这两个一开始一言不发的“聋哑人”反而变成了从早到晚都要找我说话的人。

这几天的生活和游戏中,我觉得最锻炼我们团队精神的是那次寻宝游戏。寻宝游戏被设计得那个复杂啊。第一个线索设置在山下,下一个线索设置在山上,下一个线索又设置在山下,接下来的线索又在山上。我们四个寻宝队伍为了争夺第一追寻着线索上山下山上山下山,起初我们都是跑上山跑下山,可是第二次再上山的时候我们已经用尽了全力。然而我们依然一步一步艰难得攀登着,我也毫不示弱变出魔术棍当成拐杖协助爬山,为的就是能比其他队伍快一步到达下一个线索,即使是较弱较胖的同学也能在稍做休息后赶上前面的队友。大家平时看似打打闹闹的,但在这一刻为了自己的队伍胜利我们变得无比团结; 平时不怎么听话的孩子此时此刻对队长的分配指挥也是绝对服从。每支队伍获得的奖品只有一个,但是我们都不约而同把奖品给了各自队最小的队员。因为我们在寻宝中共同洒落的汗水才是我们真正的奖品。

最后,感谢利州区社会福利院多年来对此类活动的大力支持和对弱势群体的关爱,让弱势群体也能感受到普通的温暖。其实这样的活动我还联系过很多其他的福利院,但是其他福利院都以嫌麻烦难管理为理由把志愿者拒之门外。所以两年前我也不得不百里迢迢从成都来到广元。来到这里后感觉这里各位亲切,食,住,行,都由福利院全部包揽。福利院也鼓励我们志愿者自己设计活动内容并且尽力提供活动所需的物资。这种和志愿者融洽合作的运作方式是这里的一大特色。与两年前相比,此次还给我们每个志愿者发了两百元补助。虽然数目不大,但是表达了福利院对我们志愿者工作的支持与肯定。

最后一天,孩子们都纷纷问我们还会再回来吗? 我相信我会回去的.因为那里有一群可爱的护士,医生,歌神,魔术师,导游,武术健将,学者...在那里等着我归来.

Witness the Magical Change

This time I came with nine volunteers from the Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In fact, this is my second time back to the Guangyuan Society Orphanage. Two years ago, I organized a summer camp here with the theme of "magic". Ever since, I am magically bounded with the children here. Thus, two years later, I'm back.

This time here, I witnessed the significant improvement of the living condition and the electronics; I saw a lot of familiar faces, and a lot of new faces. For the familiar ones, they all had grown much taller; the magic toys I gave them last time, except for the rust brought by the time, had been well kept.

In this reunion, time magically winded back to two years ago, as if there was never a two-year gap since then. Especiall Erkang, his experience at age-5 shaped him to be an isolated and lonely person. As he is surrounded by people, his fear will force him to hide under the table, behind the couch; I never saw a smile on his face. After we depart two years ago, Erkang frequently called to the orphanage wanting to see me again. As I see Erkang this year, I would never believe this is the Erkang two years ago. To me, magic is fake, but these changes brought to them using my magic couldn't be more real. This new no-hidding Erkang is as lovely as any other ordinary child; in contrast, one of the new-comer hid behind the couch on the first day.

Among the new-comers, some of them are natually talkative, which of course impressed me; however, those no-talking ones also left me with their unique impression. For example, there were one who pretends to plays deaf and one who pretends to plays mute. Initially, I thought they were really deaf and mute. After my magic show, when we eat dinner, the "mute" one looks at me and smile as if he wants to say something. But as I look back to him, he immediately put his head down and continues to eat. This happened several times and finally he couldn't help but to talk, "Your...Magic...". The other "deaf" one also talked to me for the first time as I made a horrible mistake during my magic show, "I saw it!!!". I think, if my magic can let them start to talk, my magic already achieved its magical effect. After a few days, as these two "mute and deaf" kids accepted to become a part of our big family, they talked to me every morning, every afternoon, and every evening...and every night.

On the last day, many children asked us if we will come back. I believe I must, because there are many nurse, doctor, singer, magician, tour guide, kungfu master, scholars...awaiting me to return.
