Dear Little Red Scarf aunts and uncles:
When I was sick, you made me feel warm; you gave me a new heart; you gave me confidence; and you made my dream come true. I am very thankful for all your help. While I was overwhelmed by illness and on the verge of losing my health, your warm words encouraged me and helped me find confidence to face my disease with bravery. After my surgery, you sent me a lot of nutritious supplements; it made me feel that you really care about me, and I am very happy. While I was in the hospital, you sent me text messages showing your concerns about my health, for which I am really deeply grateful. When I was discharged from the hospital, you sent me a bag that I wanted for a long time, and also pens, notebooks, and a pretty pencil case.
Whenever I see these things, I feel determined to study hard, work hard, grow up strong, and honor my community and country. I will also promote Little Red Scarf and help spread the Little Red Scarf spirit. Finally, allow me to scream out: thank you, aunts and uncles from Little Red Scarf!
A child rescued by you,
Happy New Year! Best Wishes.
