The Person That I Best Remember

Mr. Du came to the village primary school following his graduation from Normal College. I was in the first grade and he taught our class. He rarely preached to us. He wasn’t really sulky, either. What impressed me most was his constant meditating manner, with his eyes looking after. I was too young to figure out what was on his mind, only seeming to sense he was not content with only being a teacher in primary school. However, he never lost patience with us; he was just longing for a higher realm. He also made a point of freeing the thought. I still remember once on a rainy afternoon, he showed us how to play soccer in the muddy field in the rain . He must have felt a sport could be played in a totally different condition. He just wouldn’t want us act and think in a stereotyped way. As I know recall, what I miss most is his spontaneous silence, his desire for the higher state, and the delightful spirit of liberty. I will encourage and reflect upon myself with these specialties all my life.
