She smiles....

The Smiling Girl.....
Qian HongYan lost her legs in an accident
Her family in China are poor and couldn't afford false legs, so she uses a basketball to help her move. - Qian uses two wooden props to drag herself, and never complains, even though she has worn through six basketballs. -
She attends her class- She always smiles

Always smiling

Always smiling

Always smiling......

I found this email among many others. It really touches my heart when I saw those picture. Not just any other ordinary pictures...I didn't see a girl without legs..what I saw..is a brave heart..that courageous mindset! I hope this will change the way we think about life in a broader perspective.

That's why, we have to thanks God in every day.
Don't ever complain.
Always say thanks in every situation.

Dear teacher...I'd received plenty of soul touching emails like this but this one really makes me ponder for awhile..
I too do sometimes grumble at life..cos at times I do forget how fortunate I am than most people. This email is like a reminder to me..to keep on being thankful and grateful in life and being less a grumbler.

BudakHutan - I too..m wordless.

Fanny - You are correct. Thanking God in our life..and inwhatever situation..cos we are in much much better situation than many people. TakeC

It is a very sad fact that there are many parts of our world that are still lacking.
The fact that you see her smiling in the photos can sometimes be the biggest irony..you duno whether to smile or cry for her..
Thanks for sharing
