“WHEN EMBRACING THE PHOTO OF YOU I FEEL AS THOUGH YOU WERE KISSING ME...”
Uncle Hồ’s roses symbolized happiness—the national happiness which had to be xchanged for by the blood in fighting. The roses were in blossom all year round. The flowers of victories in the South and in the whole country were also in blossom every hour, every day. So the roses were also the symbol of confidence and victories.
“In Uncle Hồ’ heart, the people of the South occupied a special position. Whenever receiving good news of victories from the South, Uncle Hồ was the happiest, and when thinking of the miseries of the people in the South, he was immensely melancholy and pitied.”
