Sun Jinzhong, a doctor who has been treating hospitalized novel coronavirus patients for the past 10 days in Wuhan, Hubei province, received a video from his wife on Friday.

The video showed scrolling screenshots of his daughter Sun Sihaoxue video-chatting with him, and the background sound was the girl reciting her essay "My father's eyes".

The 8-year-old girl wrote the essay as a winter vacation homework assignment. Her father works in Renmin Hospital of Wuhan University. After listening to her recital, the father was moved to tears and delighted his daughter understands and supports him.

"I told my daughter many of my colleagues are also on the front line. They work harder and are in a more dangerous situation than me. They are more admirable," the father said.

Below is the girl's essay:

My father's eyes

By Sun Sihaoxue,

8 years old, Grade 3

My father and I haven't met for a few days. It is due to the horrible novel coronavirus and we can see each other only through phone video calls.
Although my father is not a soldier, he is a "warrior" dressed in white in the war against the virus.

My father told me the ward is his battlefield, and he is duty-bound to fight and protect as many patients as possible.

Today I chatted with him again. I saw he was wearing a blue medical cap and a pair of transparent protective glasses. His nose and mouth were covered by thick white mist. I could only see his eyes through glasses. The eyes were full of love, tears, strength, power and courage.

I know he was in a dangerous situation, but his eyes seemed like they were saying "I'm fine".
