Mom and Dad, don't worry about me. Nothing is going to happen to me. I'm not naive, and I'm not someone who's got no brains or who blindly follows and is taken advantage of by others. I really am quite capable of observing and analyzing problems by myself. Recently I haven't been keen on returning home, because I don't want to waste my time, but would rather "face the world and brave the storm" in the Great Cultural Revolution. I am a person with aspirations, and I want to achieve something, except now the situation is forcing me to leave--to follow the "supreme stratagem!"5 Don't show this letter to X XX.
Don't worry about me, and get a lot of rest. I deeply believe and do not doubt that the Chairman is on our side.
