人世间,沧海桑田,群山有崩塌的时候,大海有干涸的时候,生灵有灭绝的时候,可唯有施恩,超然于一切事物之上,那么地铭记于心。老师,您无言的教诲如春风,无语的师恩深似海。我答应您,让世界有爱,似如您在。

It is a very great opportunity, a lifetime experience to be part of this Silent Mentor Program. I gained a lot of things that I am sure that won’t get in any textbooks or lectures.

At first, I thought by joining this program, it will be just the same as learning anatomy using the cadavers in Anatomy Lab. However, my thought changed day by day, when I involved directly in knowing my Silent Mentor’s background, family members as well as his dedication in donating his body for medical education. I am very touched for his sacrifices, that I am sure we could not afford to pay financially or physically.

Throughout this program, the most important aspect that I learnt is not the medical knowledge, but the power of love and passion showed by my Silent Mentor. He was a very nice person, loved by his family, relatives and friends. Almost every day, my friends and I took good care of our Silent Mentor, by cleaning and suturing the body, to ensure that they are always in the best condition. It instilled the value of responsibility, love and passion to our hearts. I am sure this is best to be applied to our real patients in future.

Thank you my dearest Silent Mentor Mr. Tang Nam, for your selfless sacrifices to contribute to medical education. Even though you are silent, you spoke voices that communicated with us emotionally. It is our honour to learn from you. You will always be remembered & loved.

Last but not least, A Great Doctor is inspired by a Great Mentor. Thank you, our beloved Silent Mentors.

勿忘初衷,一直是陪伴著在就讀醫學的我的座右銘。但還是會無時無刻迷失方向。感恩有此因緣參與'無語良師'工作坊,讓我在其中學習到了平日學不到的人生價值。在此工作坊,從家訪开始,到每天早晨清理老師,在老師身上做些手術,直到在工作坊結束把傷口縫上,一直提醒我凡事得細心,得謙虛地學習。不但如此,在老師身上割錯的那一刀,縫錯的那一線,會一直烙印在我腦裡。感恩無語良師。

I have heard great things about the Silent Mentor Workshop and I am glad that I have decided to join this workshop. I have not only learned and experienced numerous hands-on surgical skills through this one week program, but also empathy and the meaning of sacrifice. The family members of our beloved Silent Mentors should receive an amount of respect as highly as our Silent Mentors as their sacrifices to support their loved one’s decision while having to go through the tough moments of grief were unimaginable. I have developed a sense of respect and affection to my respectful Silent Mentor, Mr. Tang Nam who was known to be a great husband, a loving father and a caring friend through my times helping to preparing his body every day. He was indeed a great man with a big heart, I would always keep him close to my heart, as my motivation to be the best doctor I can be, to be as kind and generous, as he was. To him, who had inspired us all, my deepest gratitude, Mr. Tang Nam.

细雨朦胧,微风拂脸。站在人海中,凝望着老师的灵柩。忆起数月前,您我只是人生过客。然而一份心意,一股勇气,一场牺牲,造就了一次美丽的邂逅。二零一七年三月二十九日是终点,也是起点。哀悼、净身、解剖、缝合、入殓,这看似轻描淡写的过程,却参杂着五味杂陈的心思。我因领悟老师传递的知识,而雀跃不已。 又因感叹生命的凋零,泪水夺眶而出。心中充满了无限的不舍与感恩。感谢您的无私奉献,愿您随海风安然离去。

From the first day of cleaning your body while I felt like you were just another patient who passed away, until the last day when I cleaned your body as if you were one of my family members, you had shown to all of us that love can be simple, courageous, selfless and of no boundaries. You had left, but you left us thoughts to be pondered upon late in the night; you were gone, but nothing can carry your greatest kindness away. You were silent but you spoke volumes. You were a gift not only to us medical students, but to all the patients we are going to meet and treat in the future. Thank you.

生命从来都不是一个易懂的课题。随着年龄的增长,人逐渐变得自私。我们似乎忘了那份纯洁,无私奉献的精神。但当生命到了最后一刻,我们的无语良师们义无反顾的把他们最爱的自己奉献给医学研究,把爱延续在他人身上。在这一个星期,我深刻地感觉到了他们的爱,他们无私的精神。捐赠大体从不是一个容易的决定,就算是对于身为医学生的我们。即不论在生时,他们的生活如何,但在他们离去的那一刻,他们是受人尊敬,爱戴的。他们值得我们的鞠躬感谢。

Through Silent Mentor Program, I got to know my Silent Mentor, Mdm. Tam and her family members. Donating her body for the use of medical education was really an act of love and kindness, especially when our mentor did not even know the person who is going to carry out procedures on her. By putting trust on us, she just surrendered her body. Silent Mentor Program is like a silent movie, messages conveyed without spoken dialogue. You have taught us humanity, love and courage. Thank you, Mdm. Tam. You will always be remembered.

In life, the body is something we use to accomplish many things, but we ultimately do not possess it, as it is not permanant. Birth, aging, illness and eventually death - this is the natural course of life and there is only so much that medicine can do when life has reached its end. 

But, what should we do with our body after our death? If we understand that the body is not permanent, we can do something meaningful out of our lives, such as donating it for medical research and education as Silent Mentor.

~  Grateful to the dedication of silent mentors  ~

 

人對於自己的軀體,只有使用權,沒有所有權。人生無常,生、老、病、死不可避免,面對大自然法則,醫療總有極限。

生命無法預知長短,然而自我能夠拓寬生命的價值,讓生命更有深度;身體健康時,以信、願、行付出;當生命結束時,將身體奉獻給醫學教育。大體捐贈的行動,人人都能做得到,只在於『捨』的一念愛心。

~ 感恩無語良師的奉獻 ~
