The Final Journey

Our silent mentors were cremated last Saturday, followed by a rather lengthy memorial service attended by the largest crowd ever in school history. Needless to say it was very touching, extremely tear-provoking and poisonously inspiring. The following two video clips (from Da Ai News Television, of course, no one is interested in a humble memorial service that day, everybody is busy reporting the economic crisis and Obama) are just 2-minute illustrations of the entire day, but I think it portrays our spirit of appreciation to our silent mentors nicely enough.

Hi Jun Yi,
This is Xiaoqun from Tzu Chi Foundation (Singapore Branch). I work for the Translation Department and is currently compiling an article about the topic of Silent Mentors for our next magazine. I found your blog by chance and I think your entries are very interesting. I wonder if I could adapt them for the article I'm working on?
Please let me know by my email: xiaoqun@tzuchi.org.sg / MSN: sillybirdy21@hotmail.com / Skype: xiaoqun_singapore. I look forward to your favorable reply. Many thanks!
