I'd very much like to talk about an event that happened to me three years ago. I volunteered and finally was selected to join a team for an assignment of going to the countryside and helping with the children dropped out of school there. To be candid, I didn't have a clear picture in my mind of the situation of those children before I went, which was why I was given quite a good shock when I reached our destination and found out that the real condition was far worse than what I've imagined. All I saw there as a classroom was a shabby and cramp house with barely a roof. There were not enough benches for the students to sit on, thus piles of wasted bricks were used for a substitute. I was amazed by the blackboard which was poorly completed by a few rough brushes of black ink on the wall. During my conversation with the local kids, I came to know more in detail about the harsh condition and the severe shortage of finance assisting the education. I was more than once overwhelmed by the powerful desire they've shown me to ac-quire the opportunity of learning. Come to compare it with the advantages presented to me for study and living, I was speechless and for the very first time in my life I truly realised there were countless people in this world who were deprived of their inborn rights and who longed for the return of them throughout their lifetime. So, the least I can do is to cherish what I have and share them with others whenever I can. It is indeed a memorable event in my life!
