米雪儿:我的理想是让人口贩卖这一恶行在地球上消失

“有的人活着,他已经死了;有的人死了,她还活着。”记得上初中的时候曾经背过这首臧克家写的诗。两句大白话,却不是年少无知的我能够领悟的。

我第一次见到米雪儿是2004年的夏天。当时环球协力社刚成立不久,米雪儿来办公室应聘网站管理员。米雪儿是日美混血儿,从早稻田大学毕业后打算到美国继续深造。“我希望拿到硕士学位后能到NGO工作。日本人的生活太安逸了。世界上还有那么多的人需要帮助,日本也有各种各样的社会不公。可是大家都假装看不见。”在GLI工作期间,米雪儿参加了由亚洲基金会主办的有关亚洲贩卖人口现状的论坛。米雪儿震惊地了解到,日本是亚洲人口贩卖最大的“输入国”。东京不夜城的阴影下是那些一入境就失去人身自由,被迫做苦力、出卖身体的非法打工者。“一定要让更多的人知道这些暴行”,米雪儿报名参加了一个人口贩卖受害者的救助小组,给不懂日文的女性受害者提供翻译帮助。

2005年的一天,我突然接到米雪儿父亲打来的电话。米雪儿发高烧持续不退,送往医院后被诊断是白血病。几天后,我终于和米雪儿通上了话。她正在等待哥哥骨髓化验的结果,如果匹配的话就可以做移植手术。她喃喃地向我道歉说,暂时不能来上班了,“不过我一点都不害怕。我这么年轻,一切才刚刚开始。我一定会好起来的!”骨髓移植手术非常成功。不久,米雪儿奇迹般地出院了。我请她到她最喜欢的意大利餐馆一起庆祝。几个月不见,她长出了一头漂亮的短发,看上去神采奕奕。“我真是太幸运了。接下来我要抓紧时间报考研究生。一定要把因为生病耽误的时间补回来。”

一年后,米雪儿的白血病再次复发。她在病床上完成了给蒙特利国际学院的入学申请。

"我的理想是让人口贩卖这一恶行在地球上消失。我相信有志者事竟成,就象我一定能战胜癌症一样。"第二次骨髓移植手术成功后,米雪儿收到了蒙特利的录取通知书,从日本搬到了阳光灿烂的加州。

此后,米雪儿的学业因为病情不稳定中断了好几次。在回日本疗养期间,米雪儿结识了Jake Adelstein。Jake曾是读卖新闻社会部的记者,因对日本黑社会的犀利报道而闻名。米雪儿协助Jake撰写了"东京之恶"一书。这本书通过来自日本警察局,黑社会组织的第一手资料,揭开了包括贩卖人口在内日本社会鲜为人知的黑暗一面。Jake因为此书的畅销而遭到黑社会组织的追杀。米雪儿却毫不畏惧,继续帮助Jake收集受害者的信息。"米雪尔是一个天生的斗士。面对威胁,她只会越战越勇。"

2012年,米雪儿第四次骨髓移植手术失败,年仅30岁。

经历四次骨髓手术的痛苦我无法想象,我也无从知晓在她纤瘦的身体里为什么能蕴藏着如此巨大的能量。回想起来,我给她写的信都是羞愧无力的喃喃自语,而她写给我的每一句话都温暖如冬日正午的阳光。在她Facebook的最后一通留言里,她这样写道:"我的肉体正在经受的苦痛如今也已经成为幸福的一部分了。这让我想起了我最喜欢的一句话,痛苦就象是一串美丽项链的串珠,有了它们才能把项链串起来。痛苦让我更珍惜生命和生活中所有美好的东西。"

米雪儿去世后不久,蒙特利学院于2012年12月给她追授了毕业证书。她的教授和好友还在学院发起建立了以她的名字命名的记念基金,筹得款项用来资助她生前最大的梦想:让人口贩卖这一行径在地球上消失。



念念不忘,必有回响。
