“There are Many People Doing Great Things in the World. They are Great, and I Want to be a Great Kid, Too”

On 6 June 2014, Liang Yaoyi, an 11-year-old gifted student from Shenzhen, China, died after having been diagnosed with brain cancer at age nine when he began to feel dizzy and have difficulty walking. Before he died, he told his mother, Li Qun, “There are many people doing great things in the world. They are great, and I want to be a great kid, too.” His way of being great was to donate his organs so that other people could live. A photograph showing doctors bowing to his corpse to honor him went viral; his mother can be seen crying in the background.
