"Glory belongs to the workers." The enlightenment of this saying is not lost in our era but surrendering to temptation seems rife. Last weekend, on the arrival of the International Labor Day, a volunteer activity was held by the Student Union of our college to pay a visit to the local farm in the neighborhood.
The volunteers were divided into two groups to take part in different farm work. Some went into the farmland to help with the harvesting of the winter wheat, while others visited the greenhouse to witness the growth of counter-season vegetables. Every one of the volunteers reported a great sense of accomplishment by the end of this activity.
“By organizing this activity, we hope the students could get to know more about the rural area and the farmers, and to appreciate the farmers and their honorable contributions.” said Li Ming, the Secretary of the Student Union.
