in which Totoro boops Mana Ashida on the head.
Japanese child actress Mana was embarrassed that she couldn’t pronounce Guillermo Del Toro’s name so he gave her special permission to call him “Totoro-san” instead.
A devoted Chinese father who carries his disabled son 18 miles to school every day will be provided with government-funded accommodation nearby.
Yu Xukang walks the huge distance with his son, Xiao Qiang, strapped to his back in a specially constructed basket.
The 40-year-old, from Fengyi township in Yibin county in southwest China’s Sichuan province - 2,000 miles west of Shanghai - refused to give up on the boy now aged 12, despite the fact that both his arms and legs are twisted and his back is hunched.
He said: ‘I know that my son is physically disabled but there is nothing wrong with his mind. However, I couldn’t find any school here with the facilities to accept him and was constantly rejected. In fact the only place where I could get a place for him was at the Fengxi Primary School in Fengyi township in Yibin county in Sichuan province - which is a five-mile walk away.’
He said that he estimates he has walked around 1,600 miles up and down hills backwards and forwards since he started counting: ‘My son with his disabilities is not in a position to walk on his own and it also means that he can’t ride a bike. Despite being 12 he’s just 90 cm tall. But I am proud of the fact that he is already top of his class and I know he will achieve great things. My dream is that he will go to college.’
After the distance that Mr Xukang walks was revealed in local media the local government announced that they would rent a room to the dad in the near future.
And in the meantime the school will be adapted so that it can also take boarding students, including Xiao, to help reduce the workload of the father.
I’m in tears. This man is an inspiration.
From the Daily Mail but they suck
Hey, look. This is REALLY important.
Can we now stop hating on people, seriously? Tumblr is catching it on its radar and it is a preeeety big sign when this is brought up in the new agreements.
I bet that half of everyone just clicked agree and left it at that.
Stop hating on gender: Binary and non binary.
Stop hating on sexuality: Cis or non Cis.
Most of all: Stop sending hate to Minors.
I’m sick of seeing hate with this stuff on my dash, tumblr is addressing this so can we all just calm down please?
Important for this blog and points I brought up the other day.
Oh, good to know there’s a specific rule against harassing minors. Keeping this in my back pocket.
you do realize the missing airplane was possibly gone because of two terrorists who are actually onboard the plane with stolen passports.
They’re looking into the possibility that they COULD be terrorists, not that they actually were. The whole thing could be a coincidence. But they may have had something to do with the plane crash.
I just feel sad and sorry for the victims and their families.
