Share 'Are You An Airplane?'
2016-12-25 17:33
Lily, my professional assistant, just recently came back to America. I brought her back here because I wanted to give her the opportunity to spend Christmas in America. A few nights ago, we were at the local WalMart Neighborhood Market. It is only a grocery store; unlike the bigger WalMart stores. I've encountered a lot of the more than 200 students who were sent here by the Chinese government to learn how to fly airplanes, in this store. They were in there shopping the other night. I said, " ...

Share What's Your Greatest Fear?
2016-12-25 16:58
I know mine. It's very easy. It is to have lived my entire life and to have not gained the wisdom that I know I need and truly desire. Solomon could have had anything that he wanted. Not just from others. His father was the king. He was the most beloved son of David, the most famous ruler of Israel. He could have asked for riches, which later, he did get. But that's not what he sought. He asked for wisdom. He didn't seek it from man. He sought it from the divine mind of God. W ...

This morning, I posted something on Facebook that was from a journalist in Hong Kong. I don't remember his name nor who he writes for. I really didn't take it all that seriously. However, when I posted it, there were many who got offended and started defending our President-elect, Donald Trump. I deleted the post after almost 100 comments were posted there. The op-ed piece was talking about the fact that Trump is a billionaire, flies in his own jumbo jet, wanted to put Hilary in pri ...

Share How China Can Dominate The World
2016-12-21 05:34
China has brought over 650 million people out of poverty over the past 40 years. A remarkable feat. Especially in light of where they'd been prior to the 1976 'opening up.' From millions starving to hundreds of millions thriving in just 4 decades. It's never been done in history. The leadership of the Communist Party, starting with Deng Xiaoping through China's most amazing present leader, President Xi Jinping and all others in between, created the greatest economic miracle in the history of the ...

Share Why Foreign Teachers Leave China
2016-12-20 23:10
I read a statistic that said that this year, 40% of the foreign teachers (native English speaking teachers) left China after the 2015-2016 school year. I happened to be one of them due to the requirement that a foreigner with a Z visa must leave for 6 months after being there for a consecutive five years. Of course, as is the case for many things in China, this law is not enforced in many places . Unfortunately, where I live, it is. Foreign teachers do not know China before they go there. The ...
