He certainly understood one purpose of hieroglyphics, in that they also are 3000 year old "Ramses II was here" tags, of a sort. It's about posterity, and leaving one's mark for future generations to remember. The excited kid wanted people to know that he had been here. However, this tomb was not his to deface. Let him build his own tomb with his own great deeds to mark that "Ding Jinhao was here." Right now, I think that he is earning a place in history for the wrong reasons: complete and total utter disrespect for historical artifacts, as well as for the dead and for religion. He may as well have gone to the Sistine chapel and left his tag on the ceiling. No diff. Whether or not one subscribes to religious beliefs, one should at least respect the religious artifacts of others, even if the religion itself is no longer practiced, it was sacred once. If the tomb of the first Chinese Emperor, Qin Shi Huang, ever becomes open to public viewing, would our little Ding Jinhao leave his tag there, too? Likely not. So, whatever reasons would stop him from defacing the tomb of a Chinese Emperor should be applied in future to any other historical site he visits. But, does one blame the parents or the Chinese government for instilling such disrespect in the child?
