《The Winter War（凛冬之战）》
The Winter War（凛冬之战）
As we were celebrating the Chinese New Year, the festival was disrupted by the outbreak of novel coronavirus. Facing unknown enemies on a special battlefield, we had to go through the chilly winter shrouded in darkness.
Nonetheless, the Chinese nation never yielded in the course of its 5,000 years of history. No matter how many tribulations and disasters occurred, who has really defeated the adamant Chinese nation? No one!
News reported that a policeman kissed his kid separated by a glass before turning around to return to work; A doctor received a suit from his father written “Fight SARS” and added “Fight COVID-19” to it; Nurses shaved their heads and hid their beauties deep down in their minds; A man quickly ran to the police station, left masks behind and then ran away, and he was heard shouting from distance that “I’m a Chinese”. They are ordinary persons indeed, but their lofty deeds should be praised!
With tinny sparks we have ignited the steel-like darkness. Fortunately, the confirmed cases and the severe cases are sharply declining, and the experts of WHO have agreed that the timely and resolute preventions of China prevented or at least delayed hundreds of thousands of confirmed cases. Guterres, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, said that “Our thanks go to the Chinese people who made huge sacrifices and are temporarily prevented from a normal life to cease the epidemics. They are doing something for the goodness of entire human beings.” Being quarantined to households today is for breathing fresh air tomorrow; Wearing a mask at the moment is what we have sacrificed in order to let everyone meet each other with a smile in the future.
More than 40 years of reform and opening-up established effective interactions between China and the whole world. China is making increasingly greater contributions to the world economy, and Chinese people are more confident in the international community. Coming from a peasant’s family, I was lucky enough to live on the booming development of China and study in the US. Now I’m teaching English to kids in a school, and when the virus broke out, I change my role into an “anchor”. I recorded video classes and answered students’ questions, and instead of using a pen, I used a computer to check the mistakes made by students in their homework. Actually, I just wish students to keep learning instead of wasting their precious time.
Camus said in La Peste that all evils among human beings are due to folly and ignorance. We are Chinese, and we are fearless to slander or conspiracy. We are honest to friends. Let’s keep making a clear distinction between right and wrong, reject fear, build up confidence and embrace a rational attitude toward the virus.
Dear compatriots, there is always a helpful hand when we are in need! Good luck to Wuhan! Let’s pray to enjoy the spectacular cherry blossom sometime later in this year!
