While going to school has been taken for granted in many parts of the world, courageous kids at a remote mountain village in Da-Liang mountain of China risk their lives to go to school. They have to embark a 2-hour dangerous journey to climb a steep mountain of 2625 feet to go to school as many parts of the mountain are so steep that the ladders are nearly vertical. This heart-breaking story was reported by ABC News in 2016.

A group of Indiana kids, including my daughter Yaya has taken actions to raise money for the “Cliff School” since the beginning of the year. Here are their story and campaign: https://www.youcaring.com/sinousanextgenerationfoundationinc-1051329

Please support their campaign and help with their effort by sharing with your friends on social media. Thank you all for your love and generosity. Cheers!

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
