Red Star News reporter contact In Su Bingtian’s hometown of Guyi Village in Zhongshan, Guangdong, the staff of the village committee said that they “did not know” whether Su Bingtian was a descendant of Su Shi.

Chairman of the China Su Shi Research Society, Zhou Yukai, said that through the understanding of the society, there are many people who claim to be descendants of Su Shi, and those who have Su Shi’s genealogy, and there are different opinions, “I don’t know whether Su Bingtian is a descendant of Su Shi. “

Does Su Shi have a family tree? Liu Qingquan, Director of the Research Office of the Sansu Culture Research Institute in Meishan City, Sichuan Province and Deputy Secretary-General of the China Su Shi Research Society, said, “I don’t think so. Mentioned that he was a descendant of Su Shi.

Whether Su Bingtian is a descendant of Su Dongpo may be true, or there may be no evidence to test it. Whether it is true or not is not important, and there is no need to add to the trouble of verifying.

The history of running away, earning a living, and traveling as eunuchs is full of exiles, which can lead to the interruption of records such as genealogy. Even Su Shi’s father, Su Xun, when arranging Su’s genealogy, can only be traced back to his great ancestor. As for the ancestors before Gaozu, Su Xun can only sigh with emotion: “Wow! It’s impossible to know more about the great ancestor.”

Since even the Su Shi family can’t verify which ancestor they are descendants of, whether Su Bingtian is a descendant of Su Shi may be more difficult to verify after so many years, and there is no need to verify.

For the statement that Su Bingtian is a descendant of Su Shi, we might as well understand it from good wishes. Chinese culture pays attention to “water has its source and wood has its roots”, and there is a tradition of recognizing ancestors and returning to their ancestors. No matter where the descendants migrate to, they will also record the ins and outs on the genealogy, and write the name of the prefectural Wangtang on the gatehouse, so as not to forget the root. Don’t forget your ancestors, remember where you came from, this is a traditional virtue, and it is also the centripetal force and cohesion of the Chinese people.

When recognizing one’s ancestors, one is proud of recognizing famous people. Among them, there is an intention to inspire future generations to work hard and live up to the sages, not just to climb the dragon and follow the phoenix. Su Bingtian is a famous trapeze man who has won a lot of glory for the country. Even if there is a saying that he is a descendant of Su Shi, he still has a good wish to live up to the glory of his ancestors.

For Su Bingtian, he has done his best , worthy of the ancestors, but also worthy of the country’s cultivation. Whether Su Bingtian, other athletes, or celebrities who have won glory for the country in all walks of life, they are all descendants of the Yellow Emperor and descendants of the dragon. It is enough to have this one label. There’s no need to ask them which celebrity ancestor they are.

It should be said that everyone is the descendants of Yan and Huang, all descendants of the dragon, and all outstanding sons and daughters of the Chinese nation. Whether it is ordinary or great, they are all contributing to the country in their respective positions, and they are all living up to the wishes of their ancestors and making life better! Let us work together with Su Bingtian, keep running, serve the motherland and comfort our ancestors.
