Communism

10 Mar

Apparently a few of my great grand uncles used to serve in the monarchy in China. Of course they all got sent to be executed when communism rose up. One of them escaped by jumping down the truck that was onwards certain death. I really admire his courage for even attempting that. Because I know that if it were me in his shoes, I would probably have quietly accepted my fate, because the fear of being caught in the future, or of being chased in the present, sometimes scares me more than death. It’s what my nightmares are made of.

    Oh no – I love those animated gifs! I’m not sure what I would have done if I were one of your great uncles – I’m an eternal optimist so I might have jumped thinking I would survive … but then again I might have been so scared that I would be frozen stiff unable to do anything.

    Wow, that story is so impressive. I’m sad they had to go through such a hard time though.

    And another AMAZING gif. I seriously love these XD. I guess they’re loads of work? Haha, I get that you won’t make any for a while.
