There was a dark scar on my face, the result of a road traffic accident. Late that night, the front wheel of the motorbike slid into the construction sand streak scattered at the intersection of Quan Thanh and Hang Bun streets, and I fell down on the road. The pressure on the road surface was rough and painful, I felt like I was bleeding and faintly took a step forward, then fainted.

When I woke up in the emergency room of Viet Duc Hospital, the wound was sewn, sore and some close relatives. They were informed by a woman who called me, who saved me and taken me to the hospital and sent my car and assets at the ward police. I later tried many times to find the benefactor but not satisfied, but I heard that she worked as a scrap metal collector.

Surely this is a kind person, I believe. I still have a scar on my face even though many friends suggested that I go for a "cosmetic" treatment, which can disappear completely. I keep it as a reminder of the lesson of how to live thoughtfully for others, who myself have been enjoying it from a stranger on the street.

Another situation I learned in Da Nang, the image of a man holding a hammer chiseling broken concrete and sticking on the road surface to limit traffic accidents. This person's actions received many compliments from the online community. The man is Mr. Mai Xuân Hùng from Quảng Nam.

Mr. Hung told me that he was a granite worker, when he came home from the Red Bridge section, heading to Mieu Bong junction (Hoa Phuoc commune, Hoa Vang district, Da Nang city), he discovered the scattered concrete. tight on the road. Worrying the pedestrians might have an accident, at midday in the sun, he sat cloudy and cleaned it up.

His beautiful actions reminded me of the spirit of "Omoiyari" - a concept originating from Japan, to refer to a respectful attitude of life: "Thinking for others". In fact, as we have seen, Japanese people always have very simple actions, everyday life and many positive attitudes. Prominent among them, Omoiyari is a valuable virtue, which means caring, kind and kind to everyone.

In Japanese, Omoiyari is made up of two words, omou and yaru. Omou means thinking or feeling, used in many situations, from expressing your opinion to remembering beautiful memories. And yaru means doing, giving or taking over. It is this combination that makes Omoiyari a word that represents the noble spirit of thinking about the feelings of others, putting oneself in their situation to think and act on the human, unselfish.

The spirit of Japanese "Omoiyari" is evident in even the smallest details, from the ingenuity of keeping a certain distance so that the opposite person is comfortable in queuing, coming in for conversations. Everyday, Japanese people are also sensitive when avoiding sensitive topics such as age, physique, income or marriage. This insight and subtlety gave me a truly sympathetic look when I later had the opportunity to exchange business with Japanese partners.

Or during a business trip in Japan, I took the Shinkansen bullet train for the first time. Known to be a famous Japanese technological work, but what caught my attention when boarding the train was the row of seats arranged in two rows of three and two, with the middle seat in the row of three wide. than the other seats.

When I got to the hotel, I emailed the operating company Shinkansen, and surprisingly, they answered in a few minutes. Which answers that the middle chair is wider than the two adjacent seats in order to give the middle seat more comfortable, without feeling the two people sitting next to you gripped. And this was carefully calculated in the original design, they called it Omoiyari.

I think a lot, affordable the delicate design, always interested in the feeling of the user in this spirit of Omoiyari has originated for the outstanding success of the Japanese. They pay attention from the smallest details but bring great satisfaction, so that other peoples must look and admire.

We still seem to be easy to click on small things, push the road a little, go the red light a few seconds or jostle without queuing ... Things that seem small, do not think for others is the brake restrain many kind things that should always be present.

For example, in each harvest season, many rural areas happened the story of drying rice and corn under the road of farmers in the crop. People even create iron spikes to get out, preventing road users from inserting corn. Those iron nails were an obsession for many people.

There are individuals for their own sake to take action, but there are also heroes and scavengers who do not hesitate to devote their time to helping unfamiliar people.

In today's society, there are many people who are willing to help others, but sometimes do not act because they think they are easily spread. However, perhaps it is never too late to start changing for a better life and society. Simple, is to start thinking for others.
