    Life's Short - Make it Sweet...
生命如此短暂,让生命变得甜蜜些吧……
 
        姐妹们,活好当下,做好能做的每一件事,不为此生后悔。生命太短暂了,所以应该开心地过好每一天!——心婉
 
                              

        The girl in the picture is Katie Kirkpatrick, she is 21.  Next to her, her fiancé, Nick, 23.  
        The picture was taken shortly before their wedding ceremony, held on January 11, 2005 in the US.
        Katie has terminal cancer and spend hours a day receiving medication.
        In the picture, Nick is waiting for her on one of the many sessions of chemo to end.

        照片上的女孩名叫Katie Kirkpatrick, 21岁。在她边上的是她的未婚夫Nick, 23岁。他们于2005年1月11日在美国举行了婚礼,照片是在他俩婚礼刚结束后拍的。Katle 已处于癌症晚期,每天必须接受几个小时的化疗,照片中,Nick正在等她结束化疗。

        In spite of all the pain, organ failures, and morphine shots, Katie is going along with her wedding  and took care of every detail. The dress had to be adjusted a few times due to her constant weight loss.

        尽管长期病磨疼痛,注射吗啡,器官衰退,Katie还是坚持参加婚礼,并注重其中的每个细节。由于体重不断下降,Katie的结婚礼服不得不调整了好几次。



        An unusual accessory at the party was the oxygen tube that Katie used throughout the ceremony and reception as well.
        The other couple in the picture are Nick's parents. Excited to see their son marrying his high school sweetheart.
 
        婚礼上非同一般的器具就是氧气瓶,Katie靠吸氧,坚持参加了整个婚礼和宾客接待。

        照片上另一对夫妇是Nick的父母,他们激动地看着儿子与他高中时的恋人幸福地完婚。

 
 
        Katie, in her wheelchair with the oxygen tube, listening to a song from her husband and friends.  
 
        Katie 的轮椅上挂着氧气瓶,照片上,她正吸着氧气聆听她的丈夫和朋友们唱歌。

 
 
        At the reception, katie had to take a few rests. The pain did not allow her to stand for long periods.

        在招待宾客期间,Katie不得不休息一会,因为疼痛使她不能长时间站立。

 
        Katie died five days after her wedding day. Watching a woman so ill and weak getting married and with a smile on her face makes us think..... Happiness is reachable, no matter how long it lasts.
        We should stop making our lives complicated.
 
        婚礼后的第五天,Kaite永远地离开了人世。看着一个如此病重虚弱的女孩,脸上带着微笑,完成了自己的婚礼,不禁让我们思索着……幸福可以随时可得,无论她能持续多久,我们不要把生活想得太复杂。
 
 
 
        Life is short.
 
        Make it Sweet...
 
        Break the rules,
        forgive quickly,
        kiss passionately, love truly,
        laugh constantly.
        And never stop smiling,
        no matter how strange life is.
        Life is not always the party we expected to be,
        but as long as we are here,
        we should smile and begrateful.
 
 
         生命是如此短暂
 
         让生命变得甜蜜些吧
 
         快快打破常规和约束,
 
         让我们彼此得到宽恕和谅解。
 
         热情地拥吻,真诚的相爱,
 
         不停地欢笑,千万不要停止欢笑,
 
         不管生活是多么地艰难……
 
         生命不会永远,我们期待相聚。
 
         只要我们还在这里,
 
         就应该欢笑,应该感恩……
