The Meaning of Honor

   The word honor is often associated with admirable career success, brilliant academic achievement, great social contribution and high position.

    When speaking of honor, one has images like Yang Li-Wei, Jackie Chen or learned scholars like the honorable judges here. It is true that these people are worthy of admiration. But how about those who are around us, who contributes to the society in different ways, completing their everyday task with devotions but remain unknown? Are they far from honor? Should they only clap hands for the people on the stage? Shouldn’t they also deserve respect from us? I don’t think so.

  Honor wears different coats to different eyes. I would like to take miss Zhang, a primary school teacher, for example. She has been teaching English for more than 30 years. Countless students have learnt the first English letter from her and become interested in this language because of her enlightenment. So many years have passed and Miss Zhang is still an ordinary primary school teacher without any prize, flowers or honorable titles But in my eyes she is the very person who deserve honor and respect. Every time I stand on the winner’s box, I couldn’t help thinking of Miss Zhang. I owe my success in English and my gratitude to her.

  Just as Alexander Pope said: Act well your part, there all honor lies. Honor can be found in our every day life and belongs to you, to me and to every ordinary person.

  荣誉

  荣誉,是一个神圣的字眼,是令人羡慕的光环,是光荣的标志。

  人们一提起荣誉,首先会想到那些干出一番轰轰烈烈的事业,那些做出过巨大贡献,或者是地位显赫的人。例如杨利伟、成龙等,或者是在座的教授、评委们。是的,他们都享有盛誉,都应该受人尊重。但同时,我也不会忘记在我们身边还有许许多多默默耕耘、爱岗敬业、甘于奉献,却又默默无闻的人们。

  难道他们就与荣誉无缘吗?难道他们就只佩在台下为领奖者鼓掌祝贺吗?难道他们就不应该同样受到社会的尊重吗?不,我不这样认为。

  我想说说我的一位小学老师,她姓张。教我的时候,她已在讲台上站了30多年。年复一年,一批批学生从她那里受到英语启蒙,我就是那时喜欢上英语的。而多年过去,张老师还是一位普通的小学英语老师,没有大奖,没有称号,没有鲜花。但在我眼中,她是最值得得到尊重,得到荣誉的人。我每次在英语比赛中取得成绩,得到奖励,就会想起张老师,就想向张老师道一声谢谢,就想把荣誉归于张老师。

  由此,我认为,荣誉也应该是一个朴实的字眼,是一束在平凡中闪烁的光辉,她应该属于每一个普普通通的人。
