Love's essence

Highly moved by the story of an old movie star today.

  1. He was a literary soldier when he was about 14, he said, some battle companions went lively, back with a white calico on their body, the time background let you know that you should act good to face to those dead friends.
  2. he and his wife married when they were 20s, his wife died last year at their 70s, their certificate of marriage never broken(Trauschein, certificat de mariage,婚姻证明书,结婚证书) His wife first lost her sight for 5 years, later became a Melancholic for more than 40 years. He said he never thought the divorce, even though that time he was a hot movie star.
  3. He did the house work for his wife, including washing, cooking, raising two children, even he was a chairman of the movie factory, busy on business too.
  4. He said his is not willing and it's very difficult to send his wife to the hospital, every time he cried out after that.
  5. He is very polite, gentle.

p.s. the song moved me to tears when I heard it in west life:

Brothers in Arms

These mist covered mountains
Are a home now for me
But my home is the lowlands
And always will be
Some day you'll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And you'll no longer burn
To be brothers in arm

Through these fields of destruction
Baptism of fire
I've watched all your suffering
As the battles raged higher
And though they did hurt me so bad
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms

There's so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones

Now the sun's gone to hell
And the moon's riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die
But it's written in the starlight
And every line on your palm
We're fools to make war
On our brothers in arms
