*************** Mom’s letter ************

My dear friends,

Everyday I receive either phone calls or e-mails from my friends around the world asking me if my family are safe in China. I want to give a heartfelt thanks to you all for your kind thoughts and concern.

The earthquake has not just hit the people in China, but overseas Chinese too, few days on my heart feels the pain and my tears could not stop while I am watching and reading the news.

This morning, I showed my daughter Tingting some of the after quake images on the internet, and told her that so many children have now lost their Mum and Dad; they have nothing left, because the earthquake has destroyed everything around Chengdu. She was listening and looking at the photographs, then she suddenly walked away from the computer quietly and I heard her bedroom door slam shut. I instantly thought maybe some of the images were too disturbing and had upset her, I went to her room to check, when I opened the door, a touching scene strike me before my eyes:

Tingting knelt down on the floor, two hands were shaking her moneybox and some pennies had dropped on the red carpet, she saw me come in, then quickly grabbed the pennies and held them in front of me:

“Mummy, give the children my money, tell them: please buy anything they like.”

Oh! The moment, my heart was tightening and my tears rushed out like pulling rain, I hugged her with all my heart and I was completely speechless.

“Is this enough Mummy,” she looked at me and asked with her pure innocent face.

When I looked down, my tears had dropped on her little hands with few brown and silver pennies. She put them down on the floor and said let’s count them:

“One, two, three…” she earnestly counted each penny and summed them up with her small fingers:

“Eighteen… wait Mum, I have more”. She then went to her draw and found her little purse, took other few pennies out,

“Is this enough now”! She had that little worried look on her face.

I wiped out my tear but still more burst out and I could not stop. I know that she was waiting for me to confirm.

“No, my little sweetie, its not enough here,” I watched her little face with a disappointment.

“But helps. Every penny you give to them all helps, help them to buy a pencil, paper so they can draw like you. Thank you Tingting https://..kamagra-oral-jelly/! My darling, Mum so proud of you!”

I hugged her so tight, and kissed her “Mum love you so much”.

“Mum, I want to you be happy”.

“Yes, I am happy! I am so happy you have a good and kind heart, you care about people”.

As a mother this is a best reward, and I am so proud of her, my little girl who is six years of age, who can be so considerate who has such a kind heart.

This is just a little story happened today and I would like to share with you, once again, thanks very much for your friendship. My family and friends in Chengdu are safe and well.

    I heard that China Life Ins. Co.[the largest life insurance co. in China] & many others will provide all living & education expenses to quake’s orphans till age 18. Pls check it out & help those poor kids to apply for as they don’t know how to do it.

    After you have done all those good deeds, pls do something more. Ask everyone you know in China:

    *Why those relatively new school buildings collapsed worse than the much older structures?

    *Any possible kickbacks involved when they were built?

    *Can PRC become a first class nation if kickbacks & bribery continue as usual?

  2. I heard that the donations for the school structures were too small so that the structures were weak.

  3. Hello to every one, the contents existing at this web site are in fact amazing for people experience, well, keep up the good work fellows.

  4. Guanxi is so endemic in China. We rnleetcy watched a documentary on Al Jazeera English channel about a young Chinese man teaching in a Middle School in Chengdu. It was remarkably similar to your description. His pupils all seemed to be disaffected male teenagers. He lost weight, seemed to be acting as a social worker to them, with no good result. He quit! I know of a Scottish teacher who taught in Shenyang and became very fond of his students until some of them offered him bribes for good exam results. When he refused, some threatened to kill themselves. Sadly, he had to say it was their choice. (Non did!). I also know a Chinese girl who is completing an MA and also completing another for her male friend! I know that I have occasionally benefitted from guanxi myself, when I am in Beijing and have guiltily enjoyed it!

  5. I am just commenting to make you know what a superb experience my cousin’s princess gained viewing your webblog. She picked up several issues, which include what it’s like to have an incredible coaching spirit to get men and women without hassle learn various tortuous subject areas. You truly surpassed our own expected results. Thank you for providing these valuable, trusted, revealing and also cool thoughts on your topic to Kate.

  6. My wife and i felt very thrilled that John managed to round up his reports through the entire ideas he obtained out of the web site. It is now and again perplexing to simply possibly be freely giving steps that people today may have been selling. We really recognize we need you to thank because of that. The explanations you made, the straightforward web site navigation, the friendships you will make it possible to promote - it is all spectacular, and it’s really making our son in addition to us consider that the concept is amusing, and that’s truly indispensable. Thanks for everything!
