TomYam:中国革命成功,他们一无所有?

吴世荣 (1875-1944)

福建海澄人,槟城第二代桥生,家境富裕,以经营面粉为主。他是孙中山在北马最忠诚的支持者之一。曾担任同盟会槟城分会会长。为了协助孙中山的革命,他和陈新政、黄金庆简直是鞠躬尽瘁,几乎到了倾家荡产的地步。晚年瘫痪,家徒四壁,最后在贫病交迫中逝世。

林受之 (1873-1925)

原名林喜尊,祖籍广东潮安县。南下新加坡后继承父亲的生意,从事橡胶买卖。1907年,孙中山策划潮州黄岗起义,他惟恐军费不足,难收成效,于是和陈楚楠、张永福及林义顺等慷慨捐出巨款资助军费,独捐叻币14,000。 林受之为了帮助革命,总共捐出家财数十万,结果家产荡然无存,儿女无法受教育,沦为佣工。1925年3月12日林受之在贫困中去世。

他们又留下一样东西,名誉.
人故有一死,重于泰山,或轻于鸿毛.

如果他们什么都没有留下,也许你也不会认识他们.
如果他们什么都没有留下,也许中国革命也不会成功.

I think it's very sad. I just found out that 林受之-林喜尊Lin Xi Zun is my great grandfather from my mother side. When I was a kid I was curious about who were my grandfather's parents, I was told that they are Singaporean. I just knew that he was one of 122 members who supported Dr. Sun Yat Sen. I'm sad because for all his sacrifices seems being forgotten. It is unfair. Even his biography and pictures are very less. He died in poverty and his family was left for nothing. I know may be everyone who read my comments wont believe what I wrote. My grandfather passed away years ago, it's my uncle who told us the story. He was the second son from my grandfather, son of Lin Xi Zun.
