Discussion
Would you like to work as a volunteer in a
 poor area?
I think I will be a volunteer in a poor area.
Whenever I saw the poor living state of the
poor in the western areas and mountainous
areas, I was eager to do something for them.
All men are created equal. But they can’t get
what we can enjoy. What a pity! If possible,
I will try to help.
