浴火重生 | yù huǒ chóng shēng

On March 8 Xi Jinping spoke to the Sichuan NPC delegation. Upon being shown a photo of the Lushan earthquake reconstruction results, Xi used this phrase (not really a chengyu). As far as who showed him the picture, let’s just say that this must have been a pretty big moment for the 四川雅安汉源县古路村支部书记骆云莲代表.

MEANING

To be born again from fire (to go through great difficulties/challenges and come out on the other side)

ORIGINAL

隆兴中心校校园宽阔整洁、震中青龙场村一排排小楼整齐排列、村口矗立的感恩石上”永远跟党走”5个大字格外醒目、总书记当年在芦山县体育馆安置点帐篷内亲抚的小朋友骆俊诚正在芦山县幼儿园快乐成长……四川雅安汉源县古路村支部书记骆云莲代表发言时,用照片向总书记展现灾区新貌。习近平起身接过照片,仔细地看了起来,说:”非常高兴,浴火重生!”
