Indescribable sadness

I was taking a walk after dinner in HuangShi, Hubei, one evening in July, when I saw this man squatting on the sidewalk outside a restaurant. His posture, the dim lighting, the noise emanating from the restaurant, the rapidly-growing wealth represented by the smart cars parked on the roadside, and the seemingly-satisfied man on the opposite sidewalk combined to fill me with an indescribable sadness.

I can see many poor people there.
By the way,I can go to Hubei every summer.As a Christian,I want to be a volunteer of the camp. May I go there? I want to send you an email to talk with you.

It is certainly possible. There were volunteers from churches in HK, London, Canada, USA at the camp.

Send me an email at and we can talk.

By the way, how did you find out about my blog?
