A few days ago, a young man who failed in his graduate entrance exams sent a message to his deceased father. To his astonishment, he received a “reply,” which encouraged him to keep on trying. His father died three years ago, but he found out that the message was from someone who is using his father’s old phone number now.
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 meet you.” To his surprise, 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 need some comfort. Having given it thought, I decided to reply in his father’s name.”
A lot of netizens were touched by the story, and said it showed the care and support between people in Chinese society.
