He gets by with a little help from his friend. In a time where everyone seems to be getting more and more divided, I think it’s more important than ever that we focus on acts of goodness and compassion. Zhang Ze is a young schoolboy from China, who was d!agn*sed with a rare muscle condition, sometimes known as the r*g doll dis*ase, at the age of four.
Although he has major diff!culty moving his body around, he has been able to go to school every day for the past six years thanks to his good friend, 12 year-old Xu Bingyang, who carries him to school on his back every day. The incurab-le condition, which is officially called my-asthen*a gravis, caused Zhang to lose all control of his voluntary muscles in his legs. He simply cannot walk on his own, which is where his friend Xu comes in.
The kind young man makes sure that his buddy Zhang gets to and from school every day, and helps him get from class to class at the Hebazi Town Central Primary School in the county of Qingshen. The sixth-graders go to school together every day, with Xu carrying Zhang around on his back, piggybacking him from place to place so his day is a little easier since they met all the way back in the first grade.
Xu also helps Zhang with other little tasks most of us take for granted, like refilling his water bottle, handing in his homework and going to the bathroom. He really is the best friend that a kid could hope for. Zhang told Sichuan Online just how happy he is to have Xu as a friend: “Xu Bingyang is my best friend. Every day, he studies with me, chats with me and plays with me. I thank him to look after me like this every day.”
Apparently, this kind of compass-ion is typical of Xu, who is h*rdworking, down-to-earth and very mature, according to one of their teachers. The teacher told Sichuan Online: “For so many years, Xu has continued doing good deeds and never complained in front of the teachers and classmates.”
