Lu Xun once said: "when you think of the joy of life, you can be nostalgic, but when you think of the bitterness of life, impermanence is not necessarily a bad guest." Yes, those who once had full confidence in life, experienced all kinds of hardships in life, how many people can survive?
It was the most unforgettable summer for me. My mother took me shopping. On the way, we met an acquaintance - an old, disabled, lonely old man. He has two daughters, but her daughter works in other places all the year round and seldom comes back. She just sends money to her family according to time and entrusts her neighbors to take care of her. I often hear from grandma that he broke his leg and couldn't walk. He was always in a wheelchair, but he never gave up. He was always optimistic.
I have met him several times. I smile at him every time. I feel confident and peaceful. The first time I met him, I was standing behind him. He was selling balloons. I saw that he calmly tied the inflated balloon to the wheelchair, then took out a balloon without inflation from his pocket, inflated it with something like a needle tube, and then quickly tied the inflated balloon with a wire. His movements were very skilled. Many children surrounded him, and he introduced them with a smile.
Although the money from his daughter is hard to support, he never overcharges others for it. When he tethered the balloon, the children took it and handed over the money from their parents. One of the women gave an extra dollar, and he immediately returned it. The woman was confused, but before she spoke, the man said, "thank you for your kindness, but I believe that I can earn money to support myself, thank you.". The woman smiled and left with her daughter. I gazed at his back and was silent for a long time.
The balloon was in the air, surrounded the wheelchair, and the children were around him. His thin, protruding back was leaning on the wheelchair, and he occasionally hit him gently, which showed that he was tired of backache. But he straightened up again. I saw his strong back again.
He has always been full of confidence in life. He likes to walk in his wheelchair after supper like a normal person. People look at him with pity and sympathy. He not only doesn't mind, but also greets them with a smile.
When the last ray of sunshine hit the earth, I met him. Looking back, I saw the strong back of him trying to slide the wheelchair with his hands. A back full of hope for life, a back that I will never forget, gradually disappeared in the afterglow of the sunset.
I suddenly understood the profound meaning of this sentence: "the real road of life is a simple rope. If you can walk gracefully on it or stumble over it unfortunately, you should smile and appreciate the life for giving you so much
