Our internship has been running since 2006 and interrupted for years but resumed since 2011. We overcame a lot of hardship, but has been threatened to be stopped since 2012 and now still existing. I insist to run it on a non-commercial basis, helping students to fix out their target of life, leading a more meaningful life, solving problems and adversities that entangled them. On the average, every year I pull out one person from the valley of death. That is students on the edge of committing suicide would come to me to ask for my last help.
It’s not easy to run a non-profit making programme inside a commercial firm; the pressure would be greater than expected. Actually, it’s a square peg in a round hole.
Anyway, this venue is the most suitable one, that is to merge the philosophy of life into the financial makert, it will be more vivid, down-to-earth.
Group by group, came and left; just like the waves a river, pushing forward by the latter waves non-stoppingly. My aim is not to be a lecturer for two weeks only, but to fulfill their need. What they need is a life long mentor where they could not find in the people around them, and that’s why they come here.
In the prelude of “A tale of two cities”, its is stated :
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.
It was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness.
It was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.But I am already overloaded, can hardly can accept new beloved ones more. So if it is really called for a halt, it will be the best time for me to take a rest and concentrate on the need of the current and past participants, where they incessantly need me now and in the future.
In the postlude of “A tale of two cities”, it is stated :
It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done;
So nothing left to lose, even if facing an undefeatable foe !!!
