As is shown above, on the sky fly a group of doves symbolizing the volunteers who are deeply involved in the Shanghai world exposition. In the middle of another picture happily walks a young volunteer, holding a heart shape symbol representing the spirit of volunteer. Just as a proverb says, the fragrance always stays in the hand that gives the rose. There has been a heated discussion about these pictures recently in the newspaper. Simple as the pictures are, they do demonstrate certain thought-provoking social phenomenon.
The picture tells us that volunteer spirit is flourishing in china. Nearly 30 million registered volunteers in China have made the outstanding contributions to the relief for the May 12 earthquake, the success of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, and the wonder of Shanghai World Exposition, which has left a deep impression on the world. After the devastating earthquake hit southwest China's Sichuan Province, more than one million volunteers plunged into relief work within days. They went all out to save the victims, provide psychological counseling and donate money and materials. The spirit of volunteerism featuring altruism and charity is a social concept held by individuals or groups who are willing to help others and improve society without pay. Just as many volunteers said, they cherish the experience and love the volunteer work, which enriches their lives, enlightens them and brings them spiritual wealth.
In my view, Chinese volunteers are young, promising, proud and patriotic. Their spirit has not only touched Chinese people, but also generated worldwide attention. I believe that China is going to have more and more volunteers, especially the youth. With this spirit, we are expected to witness a harmonious scene in which the people can enjoy their life to the uttermost.
