Unsung Heroes (graphic from PaltformNation. Click image t visit source page).

Fellow-blogger and Japan-resident MikeInTokyoRogers recently alerted me to another one of those “unsung heroes” stories, this time about a Japanese company president who managed to rescue his Chinese employees before losing his own life in the tsunami . The man’s wife and children (whom he was looking for when he died) are still missing. 

The story is below. There are no doubt many similar stories. Probably most of them we will never hear about. It often happens in Japan that things only become newsworthy once they hit the headlines overseas. This is another example. The first paragraph tells us that this man is a hero in China! So it is a report about a Chinese media report.

I have several students from China in my English classes. I might use this story in my next writing class.
