Karen Woo 家人的声明

2010-08-08. Observer

在阿富汗被塔利班枪杀的英国女医生 Karen Woo 的家人今天中午发表了一份声明,其中第一次提到了她的全名是 Karen Su Ying (Cori) Woo,可能的写法是吴素英,但相信作为一个在英国出生长大的孩子她还是最习惯于别人叫她Karen。声明中除了向她这个“女儿和姐妹”致敬外,还特别强调Karen Woo是一个“人道主义者”(humanist),即不依昄任何宗教,而是相信伦理、道德与公平正义的人士。

Karen Woo 家人声明全文翻译:

我们挚爱的女儿和姐妹 Karen Su Ying (Cori) Woo 离我们而去了。她原计划在回到英国之后就举行婚礼的。

她去阿富汗完全是出于人道动机。她是一位人道主义者,她的行动没有任何宗教与政治目的。

她想让全世界知道,置身与战火中的阿富汗平民,许多基本生活需要得不到满足,她希望这里的人们、特别是妇女和孩子能得到医疗服务。

作为一名医生,她参加这次行动的目的是携带医疗器材为生活在极端偏远地区、缺医少药的阿富汗居民提供医疗服务。她致力于改变现状,对自身安全的担忧从未能阻止她采取行动,她是一个真正的英雄。

她不会愿意看到的是,由于她的个人悲剧,人们的视线会从那些亟需帮助的阿富汗人身上转移开来。

Karen,对于所有你认识的人来说,你都是灵感的来源。秀外慧中的你,身上兼具才智、执着与疯癫。你的一生过得多姿多彩:你当过舞蹈演员、模特、机翼行走特技演员、医生、救援人士。一旦决定要做什么,你做起来都充满了激情。你代表了什么是“抓住眼前这一刻”。

在你的一生中,尽管经历了各种人和事,你总是相信人性中最好的一面。
我们为你所做的工作和取得的成就感到无比自豪。人们不会忘记你的努力改变了他们的人生。

你的家人、你的朋友,在英国、在世界各地、在阿富汗,都会永远地怀念你。
我希望,你的人生能够鼓励激发人们要给予他人关爱与帮助,而不是施加仇恨与暴力。

声明原文:
Dr Karen Woo family statement

The family of Dr Karen Woo, who was killed along with nine of her colleagues in Afghanistan, issued the following statement:

Our loving and talented daughter/sister Karen Su Ying (Cori) Woo has been tragically taken from us. She was due to be married on her return to the UK.

Her motivation was purely humanitarian. She was a Humanist and had no religious or political agenda.

She wanted the world to know there was more than a war going on in Afghanistan, that people were not getting their basic needs met. She wanted the ordinary people of Afghanistan, especially the women and children, to be be able to receive healthcare.

She undertook this trek as a medical doctor, accompanying medical supplies and to provide treatment to people who lived in an extremely remote region who had little to no healthcare available.

Her commitment was to make whatever difference she could. She was a true hero, whilst scared she never let that prevent her from doing things she had to do.

She would not want this tragedy to overshadow the ongoing plight of those still in the greatest of need.

Karen you were an inspiration to everyone you met. You combined brains and beauty, intelligence, drive and kookiness in equal measure. You led an intensely packed and rich life: dancer, model, stunt plane walker, doctor and aid worker. Whatever you set your mind on you did so with passion.

You were the embodiment of seizing the moment. You went through life always believing the best of everyone despite everything you’ve seen.

We are so proud of the work you were doing and all that you have achieved.

You made a difference in people’s lives and for that you will not be forgotten. You will be sorely missed by us, your family and friends, here in the UK, around the world and in Afghanistan.

I hope that the legacy you leave is to inspire others to give love and aid rather than perpetuate hate and violence.
