The two stories I am going to talk about are actually about Chairman Mao’s statue.
These two stories happened in 1993, When was the 100 year’s anniversary of Chairman Mao’s birth. One of the stories is…
For Chairman Mao’s statue was made in Nanjing, and it should be carried to Shaoshan, Hunan, Chairman Mao’s hometown. When the truck passed by Jiangxi, it suddenly got stopped, even the driver hadn’t expected that. The driver tried to restart the truck, but he still couldn’t start it after several tries. He was told by the locals that Jiangxi is the start of Chairman Mao’s revolutionary career, probably he want to stay there overnight, so the driver stopped there for a night. Next day, the driver easily started the truck without any repairment.
Another story happened during the inauguration. That was March, but what incredible was that all the azaleas in Shaoshan blossomed out. You know normally azaleas only blossom in April. All the people cheered that “Chairman Mao is back”. Also that day, the sun and the moon appeared in the sky at the same time.
I still don’t know whether the two stories are true or not, for I didn’t witness that. I am not superstitious. But I still get a little believe that - I don’t know why. Just before I post this blog, I watched a short video about the stories. I don’t care about it is true or not, I know I felt esteemed and respectful during I watched that. Chairman Mao is a spiritual symbol to us now. We’d like to believe that he has a power to make good changes – to our life, to our country, to any other things.
I try to add the video on, but I don't know how to. So I just offer the link for someone who interest in it: http://www.56.com/u28/v_Mjc1NDY1Njk.html
