I was always inspired by the volunteers who devoted themselves in helping others. This time, I had the opportunity to visit two families. They were both very old and lived a difficult life. However, they had positive attitudes toward life and want to keep on learning even at their age. The first senior man we visited was 92 years old, he was still reading books every day. Their sincere smiles showed that they were happy and my visit was meaningful for them.
