Favourite book: Forres gump written by Winston Groom
My dad gave it to me on my 10th birthday, and he told me : when ever u fail, u need to be as optimistic as forret gump. It is written by winstion groom, and it tells us a story about forret gump. The spirit of him are sparking throughout the story, He is optimistic and he does his best to do everything and he got succeed finally. The most encouraging part I remember is that when he was a chiled, he had a car accident, and got his leg hurt. The doctor said he might cant walk any more, but he believed that he can run as fast as other children. So he did exercises everyday, he stand up and fell and then stand up again and again. Finally he can walk, and after 3 year, he got the first in a race competition. It really teaches me a lot, that we need to have hope and be positive to life , as long as we do our best , we can succeed. And I will be strong and optimistic as him and as my father hope.
