The worst of times, the best of people

至暗时刻、至善人心

As we tirelessly continue to battle the coronavirus, the response from those around the world leaves us, the Chinese people, both deeply humble and resolutely defiant.

在我们坚持不懈抗击疫情之时, 世界各地的反应让中国人既深受感动的同时也坚决反对(某些恶意言行)。

Let me start by acknowledging the unprecedented outpouring of generosity and kindness from people around the world. For instance, since the inception of the outbreak, Japanese aid has been prompt and ample. A million face masks donated by people in Japan were among the first batch of foreign aid to arrive in China. By the 7th of February, it's reported that at least 6.3 million masks, 180,000 protective gears, over one million pairs of gloves and other materials have been gifted to China from people in Japan.

首先要感谢的是各国民众展示出的空前的慷慨与善意。比如,疫情刚刚爆发,来自日本的援助就很及时且充足。最早抵达中国的外国援助物资中,就有日本民众捐助的100万只口罩。相关报道显示,截至2月7日,日本各界共捐赠给中国至少630万只口罩,约18万件防护服,一百多万双手套以及其他捐助。

Now, bilateral relations have often been mercurial. But this time, solidarity prevailed. Heart-warming citations of ancient Chinese poems posted on the delivery boxes have reminded us of the shared cultural bonds between the two nations, putting aside what makes us different and bringing us, with an often checkered history, closer together in this time of need. In response, the spokesperson for China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said, such deeds will be engraved in the hearts of the Chinese people.

我们知道,中日两国关系时冷时热,但现在,团结战胜了一切。日本援华物资包装箱上的暖心中国古诗词让人们想起两国间紧密的文化纽带,淡化了我们的分歧,让两个有着复杂历史渊源的民族在艰难时刻走得更近。作为回应,中国外交部发言人表示,这些善举中国人民将铭记在心。

This is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the compassion exhibited by organizations, friendly governments, but most importantly, by people of all ages, races, creeds, and political beliefs.

这只是超越国界的人心暖流中的一小部分。来自各机构、友好政府,特别是不分年龄、种族、宗教和政治信仰的普通民众的善意都汇聚其中。

These demonstrations of support have come in all forms, from material goods to video messages or simply retweets of compassionate posts. Many have extended their arms, literally, to the Chinese community during this tumultuous time. I'm sure many foreigners have learned a few Chinese characters these days, such as WuhanJiayou. It doesn't take much. The smallest of gestures, such as a song, a hug, or a smile, can go a long way. These images have been circulated across China on national television and social media. They have brought a lump to the throat of millions across the country, including myself.

爱心的表达方式也多种多样,有时是援助物资,有时是祝福视频,或者只是转发一条富有同情心的推文。许多人在这个特殊时期,真的张开双臂拥抱华人群体。我敢肯定不少外国民众最近学会了几个汉字,比如“武汉加油”。其实不需要什么惊天之举。一首歌、一个拥抱或一个微笑,都能深入人心。这些画面在中国的国家电视台和社交媒体上传播,无数中国人为之哽咽,我也是其中之一。

However, such support has not been universal. Ugly rhetoric, especially racism, have reared their head above the parapet. We've seen this not only from individuals, who might be forgiven for being ill-informed but also in the response from some in the Western establishment.

然而,这些反应并不是全部。丑恶言论,尤其是种族主义言论也开始抬头。出于认知局限,个人的种族主义言行或许可以原谅。但有些西方当权人士居然也有这样的倾向。

In a recent article, Prof. Zheng Yongnian from the National University of Singapore highlighted this racist undercurrent in the way some have sought to isolates China in their response and overreaction to the coronavirus. Racism, he says, is deeply rooted in the Western ideology. Some have used the situation to promulgate the Western liberal order, which largely hinges on Caucasian dominance.

新加坡国立大学教授郑永年在最近发表的一篇文章中强调指出,这种种族主义暗流表现在面对疫情时有些国家对华“隔离”的措施和过度反应。他说,种族主义在西方意识形态中根深蒂固。一些人开始利用目前的形势推行西方自由主义秩序,而这一秩序很大程度上以白人的主导地位为核心。

The cacophony of opinions expressed over the last few weeks leaves much for the Chinese to ponder. We shall quietly and resolutely guard ourselves against those who chose to exploit the circumstances and attack us as a people. But, to those who have shown us such warmth and kindness in one of our darkest chapters, we say loudly and with the utmost gratitude, thank you!

过去几周来出现的这两类截然不同的声音让中国人深思。我们将安静且坚决地捍卫自己,防止有人借此次疫情攻击中华民族。但是,对于那些在此至暗时刻对中国人展现出至善精神的人们,我们心怀无上感激,想大声说一句,谢谢!
