Two Chinese Students Make Me *sniff* Proud
I've never been particularly proud of being Chinese. Until this week.
I mean, sure we built the great wall; and our civilization is ancient; and we invented a lot of things centuries before other nations did.
All of that doesn't really mean anything to me though. None of that added so much good to humanity that I could hold it up and say, "Wow, I'm proud to be Chinese."
Until this week. I saw this short video clip of two Chinese students, and for the first time in my life, I stood a little taller, head a litte higher, and with hand on heart, thought:
Yes, this makes me proud to be Chinese.
P.S. Don't you dare leave this blog without watching the clip!!! This is my people at their finest hour! (And make sure your sound is on to hear the clip).
