[Teachers’ Day]

September 10th is the Teachers’ Day in China. When I was in primary school, every year I would prepare some beautiful flowers with hand-made cards for my teachers. Later entering middle school, I bought some small gifts wrapped with colorful paper and brought them to school on that day. It seemed that the flowers were out of date. These three years, every September 10th I was in Hong Kong, far away from home. Not able to visit my teachers in person, I would instead send them messages through WeChat. During each semester break when I went back to Beijing, I would ride my bike to school and chatted with the lovely teachers for a whole day. They were glad and even excited when hearing a knock on the door to see me standing in front of them. Not knowing what to say and how to express my feelings for this kind of reunion, I just looked into their eyes and then offered a deep hug. Several days ago while editing the messages, I suddenly thought of the days before, when I was still a young girl. At that time, I would spend all the time after lunch in their offices, asking questions, talking about something interesting, or even sharing several secrets. There may not be any chances to have their classes once more in the future, but I know wherever I am, they are always behind me. And with their supports, I won’t be afraid any more.

每年的九月十日是中國的教師節。猶記在小學的時候,每年我都會事先挑選好一些花兒,附上自己做的賀卡,一同送給老師。之後上了中學,我和周圍的同學一樣開始買一些小禮物,用色彩鮮艷的紙包好,在教師節當天小心翼翼第地帶到學校去。慢慢地,鮮花已經退出了歷史舞台,教師節送花的不成文的傳統也就這樣淡去了。上了大學的這三年,每年的這一天都已經開學一兩個禮拜。離家千里之外,我自然無法親自回到學校,但是我會給老師發微信,送去祝福。於是每個寒暑假,只要一回到北京,我都會騎上之前那輛粉色的已有些舊的自行車,再走一次熟悉的路線,再看一次怎麼都看不膩的風景,回小學、回初中、回高中。和老師雜七雜八有的沒的地說著,一天就過去了。每次聽到敲門聲,之後看到我出現在他們面前的時候,老師們的眼神都沒有掩蓋他們的喜悅和激動。在重逢的瞬間,我也不知怎樣去表達內心多味的情感,只是像以前上課一樣深深地注視他們的雙眼,然後送去一個擁抱。就在幾天前,我又開始一條一條地認認真真編輯信息,寫著寫著突然就想起來以前的日子,那些我還是個什麼都不懂的小女孩兒的日子。只記得那時,吃完午飯的每個中午,我都會跑到他們的辦公室里,問問題,聊些有趣的話題,甚至分享一些小秘密。我想之後大概也不會有什麼機會再聽一次他們的課,回到學生年代,不走神、不打瞌睡、不聊天地再做一次他們的學生。但我知道,不管我在哪裡,他們總在我身後。而有了他們的支持和信任,我便也可以無所畏懼地大步向前。
