From nail to human

Viewed 928 times 2019-10-3 18:33 |Personal category:education|System category:News

In ancient times the chinese character 丁 meant ‘nail' which shape really looks like the iron thing with a sharp end: you can easily hit the nail into wood.
In the modern era, 丁may refer to ‘a man':The top horizon line represents ’the sky'; the vertical stroke symbols the main part of the body while the last ‘hook' seems as the ’foot‘ or ’feet'.  In china, we often say:"A real man should firmly stand on the ground to hold up the sky! ----------(顶天立地)".   President Xi says: "We officials should do important things step by step with firm determination just as hitting nails into wood-board. Everything goes in high efficiency!"

    Certainly all things are relatively right or wrong. How to carry an object is decided by yourself. I feel strange why Korean people joy taking heavy things on the head for transporting. I wonder if the head is painful with a stone on and the neck is strong enough to bear the load?
    I think my proposal is good to train kids to have a nice sense on correct pose of walking or sitting. A straight backbone means much to health and self-confidence.  That helps you set up a shining image before the public.

    Searu, my friend, my earlier comment is questioning your assertion that carrying the school bag from the front is good. I think it is best to carry the bag in the back as nature designed us. We just need to reduce the load. The same load on the front is worse than at the back of the body.
