I think the farmers in China are heroes.

They grow all the food for the city people. When I go to visit the rural areas many of them live in places far away from the big towns and the roads are sometimes not so good, but the farmers don't mind the mud and heat and they work hard. I could not do what they do but without them the city people cannot do anything.

So I think they are heroes.

tv-host wanghang ,had ever said tht lixiang said i look like a peasant ,the clothing looks so bad ....
with those ,i can say tht in the eyes of the city ppl,peasant is not heroes ,they are more like ones who could just sell labour to earn money .....

yes, most city folks are so self-serving that they thought  the foods on their tables came from the supermarkets.........they looked down on the rural folks because of the income disparity between them....city folks even looked down on other city folks.......so its nothing new about them looking down on others...........
It is important that man dreams, but it is perhaps equally important that he can laugh at his own dreams...............5555

Yes,you are right in some sense.They work hard and support the whole society.The country can't go on without farmers.
but from another standpoint,not many of the farmers sweats,thinking that they are really doing something for others.They grow and culltivate the crops because they themselves have to find some way to survive.If you call farmers heroes,then workers are also heroes.Everybody  plays their particular role in the society and in this way,they contribute to the society,and,at the same time,support themselves.

also,more and more farmers are rushing to the cities to  seek fortune,especially the youth.Fewer of them would like to stick to only the mother nature.Those who stay in the country are mainly the old.They stay because they have no more energy to move and also it would be very hard for them to adjust themselves to city life...That is to say,they stay because there is no choice...

sorry for talking too much...

farmers have to work hard in order to live.
if not so ,do you think who will supply them?
virtually, all of them wish their children can be a official in future, if so ,they won't grow and culltivate.
there is no doubt that our government leaves sth to be desired about the problem of Agriculture,Ruralareas and Peasantry.
Real beauty lies not in the physical appearance,
but in the heart.

I have to agree that farmers are important and should be respected

It would be interesting to see some of the city people who think they are so great to go do some farming themselves. You never know until you try it yourself.
