The Instructive Story in My Hometown
My hometown is Luoyang, Henan Province, a thousand-year-old city with modern wonders. It’s also one of the birthplaces of Chinese civilization. As a city with a long history, Luoyang has many intangible cultural heritages. Some food such as beef soup and Peony cake taste very delicious. As for me, I love Mudan Shuixi (Peony Water Banquet) most.
Mudan Shuixi, originated in Tang Dynasty, has 24 dishes, each with its own name. Chicken, duck, fish and fungus are made into delicious meals. You can taste sour, spicy, sweet and salty from them. It is said that the late premier Zhou Enlai came to Luoyang to taste Shui Xi and fell in love it. He also named Yan Cai “Peony Yancai”. Shuixi combines a variety of food to make them pretty nice. When you are eating Mudan Shuixi, you can find yourself really relaxed and enjoying the meal. The last course is the egg soup. When it is served, it means all the 24 courses have been offered.
Shuixi is one of the representatives of Luoyang culture, which is famous not only in Henan Province but also in China. I love Shuixi because it gives me a deep impression on me. I still remember that when I was a child, my mother took me to taste Shuixi. The dish is so spicy that I almost cried. Since then, I can’t forget the dish. Now I eat it once a month, and it has become my family memory.

An Instructive Story in My Country
As we can see, China is a focus of attention and becoming stronger and stronger. I would like to share you my points with pleasure.
China is a very big country with a history of five thousand years. It stands in Asia and lies on the west coast of the ocean. China covers an area of 9,600,000 square kilometers. People of about 1.3 billion live and work together on the beautiful land.
What attracts people from all over the world to visit China is such wonderful world heritages as the Great Wall. In addition，Chinese food is also noticeable. It's believed that almost everybody from foreign countries has tasted dumplings, a quite popular traditional food with Chinese characteristics made and served on special festivals .
Such are all of my points to China. I believe that every Chinese will struggle for the Chinese dream of great Chinese nation rejuvenation scheduled to be realized in the middle of the 21st century.

The Instructive Person In My Motherland
At the beginning of 2020,the novel corona-virus caused an outbreak. The speed of the spread of the epidemic had made people leave the affected areas in every possible way. But at the same time, people who retrograded went to the front line.
Dr. Zhong Nanshan, an expert in the field of respiratory diseases.17 years ago, he was a leading character in the SARS epidemic and after COVID-19 outbreak, he was a warrior of China.
After the epidemic broke out in Wuhan, according to the scientific experience, Dr. Zhong urged people not to gather and to protect themselves at home but he flied to Wuhan from Guangzhou without delay. No sooner did he arrive there than he held a seminar to conduct the prevention and control. Later, the things worse, he strongly advised the government to block Wuhan. As well he told people as long as the whole nation was of one mind, Wuhan would pull through, which touched a lot of Chinese.
In such a dangerous situation and a critical point, there is no doubt that Dr. Zhong was a retrograder. He didn’t ask the returning date, didn’t fear hardship, didn’t ask for return. One of his words stabilized the hearts of the Chinese people therefore our determination to defeat the corona-virus was aroused. Eventually, we really made it.
Dr. Zhong Nanshan, a hero and an idol to us post-2000s as well, said,“The purpose that we become idols is to eliminate the blind following of the youth but to ask more‘why’.”Yes, the idols we should follow are people like Dr. Zhong, from whom we can gain more spiritual strength.
Such is Dr. Zhong Nanshan, a well-deserved, instructive person in my motherland.

The instructive thing
It was a sultry summer afternoon, I was in a cram school, suddenly lightning thunder, a big storm water, for a while, the road is full of water, after class we crowded into a group at the school gate, no one can walk, watching the rain.
All of a sudden, an uncle who rode a bicycle fell down on the road. It turned out that the cover of the well was washed away by the water. Some students laughed. The uncle stood up in confusion and didn't leave. He first put his bicycle on the steps, bent down and pulled out the debris in the hole with his hands. Then he went back to look for something to prevent others from falling down again. We’re all embarrassed. Run to help. We first went to the roadside to find a few big branches, inserted them into the hole, and found a big board in the school, wrote on it, made a prompt, then uncle limped away. Everyone felt very satisfied, and they were moved and laughed happily.
The sky suddenly cleared up. The rainbow in the distance was picturesque. The sun was shining brightly. My heart had a kind of happiness that had never been before. That's because I have done a meaningful thing, which brings convenience to everyone and brings me happiness.

The instructive story in my school
In my city, lies multitude of schools. Each has it’s own instructive legends, which not only surprise people but also inspire students to work hard. There was such a story happened in my school.
Lee, who graduated from No.1 High School of Luoyang about a few decades ago, used to be a top student in the class. The teachers all thought highly of him and it seemed it was certain for him to go to Peking university. Unfortunately, tragedy happened to him four months before the college Entrance Examination. He was told that his family, including his parents and his older brother, got gas poisoning and all rescue measures efforts were in vain.
All the classmates and teachers were worried about him and spared no effort to help him get through the tough times. The headteacher even made Lee live with him in case that he was too despaired to commit suicide.
Lee himself didn’t give in to fate and tried to get over the pessimism. He determined to enter Peking university to honor his family. When the result came out, Lee was admitted! The whole school congratulated to him not only on getting good grades, but also on his spirits that supported him to pull through.
Undoubtfully, he became the role model of we students and our school. His calmness, his gratitude, and the power in his heart moved all of us. I’ve learned from him that no matter what happens in life, never give up hope and never give in to fate.
Brilliant school, instructive story. The stories are continuing.
