‘Response message’ from deceased father shows warmth of Chinese society
A few days ago, a young man who failed his graduate entrance exams sent a message to his deceased father.
To his astonishment, he received a “reply,” which encouraged him to keep trying.
His father died three years ago, but he found out that the message was from someone who is now using his father's old phone number.
In the message, the young man said to his father, “Dad, I miss you so much. Would you appear in my dream? I really want to see you.”
He received a message, saying, “Never mind, boy. You will grow up through setbacks. Gather yourself up and keep trying. I know my boy is the best. I miss you, too.”
“At first, I thought someone had sent a wrong message,” the new phone owner said. “But after reading it, I figured out the sender must be in trouble and needed some comfort. After giving it some thought, I decided to reply in his father’s name.”
Many netizens were touched by the story, and said it showed the care and support between people in Chinese society.
