The nonprofit "Light of Love", is a volunteer group established in 2008 by students in China Pharmaceutical University, Nanjing of China. The group aims to develop health education in rural areas in Western China to teach people to safely use medicine.
May 4th is a festival for the youth. To create a meaningful festival, Light of Love hosted a party for senior citizens.
Our Video Generation Show brought the old people back to the 1950s and 60s, an era full of passion, in order to call up their sweet memories. We also performed music, songs and poetry readings- traveling back through the dreams of their youth.
They were so happy it was like they were flying. The relationship between the old and the young is a social problem. But young volunteers learned some valuable lessons in this activity. Young people need old people’s intelligence and old people need young people’s passion. There may be a gap between the young and the old, but they can still can be good friends in spite of their age.
