The Bridge

I remember once, while I was young, my grandpa asked me after I arrived his house at the province “Grandson, do you feel tired from the long journey from Phnom Penh to my house?” I simply replied “Yeah, sure, grandpa!” Then he said “That’s right. Do you want to solve that? If so, you have to study hard to be able to comfort yourself and others, your family in particular. After your graduation, you will get a good job and you can construct a bridge from your house in Phnom Penh to my house over here, then you and everybody will be very please with the journey.” Then I was asking in mind that “What a long bridge! But it would be much pleasant in life, if I could do so.”

I recently have just understood the sentence “After your graduation, you will get a good job and you can construct a bridge from your house in Phnom Penh to my house over here, then you and everybody will be very please with the journey.” He was telling me to learn from the real world and move forward positively no matter how long it is. When I can make it, the whole family of mine and the people around me will be so proud of me.

It’s right that parents and elders educate infants to study hard, but I have a different idea when I am getting older. Study hard is one thing, but be confident and flexible with ethics, honours and respects are the points for educating young people. Hence, reconsider the words of our wise men and keep in a balance scale then use it.
