Bringing about a Better Tomorrow by Caring for the Environment
By a fellow initiate in Gansu Province, China (Originally in Chinese)
[Gansu] To preserve our “Mother River,” fellow initiates from Lanzhou, Gansu, recently launched a cleaning operation at scenic points along the Yellow River. They split up to work in two regions: east to Zhongshan Bridge and west to south of the Yellow River Bridge.
Their activities attracted much attention and acknowledgement from the public. Some people waved to show their gratitude; a group of innocent and lovely children came to say hallo. With great emotion, an amateur reporter said, “Your actions have really touched me. You might be doing a small task, but the impact is great. If every Lanzhou citizen refrained from littering, everything would be so clean and the environment would definitely improve a lot.”
*Note: In China, the Yellow River and Yangtze River are the longest and revered as the “Mother Rivers,” because for many centuries, they have nurtured innumerable Chinese people.
