Laws and rules are there for a reason, marks of orderly and successful societies that serve to keep us from descending into anarchy. However, some rules are just stupid and unnecessary. Smart and enterprising people know this, and refuse to bow to an unjust system.

This is how you begin to understand that kids always think outside the box, and in most of the cases "growing up" is actually learning to think inside the box. So, cheer up :)

Taken from another site. "My life here is very bad. The working circumstances are horrible and the advantages are few. But do not worry, each day there are only about ten people who are badly injured and I am very careful. We have opened a small store, and business isn’t bad. Although English is still mostly incomprehensible (to me), I can understand what these white people say. Hoping that we are successful! I will work hard here and take care of my health. Are you (plural: 你們) well? Miss you very much, and hope that we will see each other again."
