104 years old Sweeps Roads for Free

Ding Youzhen, 104, has been cleaning the streets near her home in China for 84 years. According to People's Daily, she got into the habit in her twenties when she and her husband ran a teahouse. They used to sweep the roads from the port to their tea house. The tea house of her husband closed several years ago but still she sweeps roads. Interestingly she does it as a social service and never takes a fee! We think that now Ding Youzhen needs some rest and the new generation should take inspiration from this lovely grandmother.
