(The late driver Wu Bin)

The Hero driver Wu Bin, like the most beautiful female teacher and most beautiful mother, is a bright landmark of the current China. The rise of a great power does not mean only the economic miracle and material civilization. Without a strong enough spiritual support, a great power will not last and will not be recognized and accepted by the world.

Wu Bin is an ordinary Chinese person but is also a hero. The heroic deed of an ordinary person is making the world approach Chinese people once again and helping the touched and shocked world understand the spiritual support to the rise of China.

The U.S. Associated Press published an article, "China Hails Bus Driver Who Saved Passenger" on June 3 to report on Wu Bin and his act at the last moment of his life. The report said that in this increasingly competitive and even cold world, Wu's selflessness and courage have carried forward the cultural tradition of China and will encourage people to shoulder social responsibilities bravely. Many media groups, including the Washington Post and the website of the American Broadcasting Company, have republished this report. On social networking sites, including facebook, twitter and YouTube, many praised him as "a great hero of ordinary people" and "a true hero."

The sympathy of souls is more powerful than the cold exchange of interests and is a footstone for the platform of trust and a foundation of the harmonious development, whether in the interpersonal relations or international relations.

The rise of a great power does not mean only the economic miracle and material civilization. Without a strong enough spiritual support, a great power will not last and will not be recognized and accepted by the world.

The current China is a diversified China. While the economy is developing rapidly and the social transformation is accelerating, some moral and spiritual problems have also appeared in the Chinese society. The severe environmental problems and food safety problems not only need all walks of life to reflect but also have strengthened the outside world's doubt on the rise of China.

How should the value orientation of Chinese people be understood? How should the mainstream spiritual world of Chinese people be regarded? The ordinary and kind Chinese people, including the heroic driver, most beautiful female teacher, most beautiful mother, have shown the simplest, greatest and most precious parts of the human being to the world and will help people find answers of these questions.

The Hero driver Wu Bin, like the most beautiful female teacher, most beautiful mother, is a bright landmark of the current China. If a country can touch people by its spiritual elements, it will definitely have a lot of friends and be respected and admired by others.
