As you might have observed, Tigers roar, Rabbits hop, Oxes or Buffaloes plow the fields,
Dragons spray fires, and snakes eliminate harmful insects or animals under corps, ...every living being on earth has its unique place, they exist for a good and perfect reason, and only if we respect nature and promote green earth, less polluted air, and clean water or safe seas, then we feel safe, happy, and at ease.
Humans are advanced animals, we differ from pets or wild animals, because we can speak, write, dream, and make technology and science our TOOLS in reaching a more comfortable level of living.
Every child is born equal, and every boy and girl is supposed to be happy and fulfill one's dreams.
We all seek comfort and happiness from our parents, family or relatives, including friends or hometown...it is very sad that, at times, we are hit by sudden sadness which is unexpected, getting a serious disease is sad, this happens to a college student whose dreams are not much different from you and me...
I happen to know a glimpse of Josie Nordman (see her above on top) who is attending northwestern university...she has a surgery today at university of chicago medical center, and needs donations...
$2, $5, $7, or $10, any ammount will help the accumulation toward the total goal...please email or call The Daily Northwestern paper for further information on how you can help this good and promising girl for her recovery, strength, and hope for a brighter future...Thank YOU in advance.
Ps: Also see the below report from the university newspaper...cheers!

Rising Communication junior Josie Nordman is scheduled to undergo lung transplant surgery tonight, possibly capping months of fundraising by the Northwestern community for the life-saving operation.
"I cannot believe this day is finally here," Nordman said at about 8:30 p.m. in a Facebook post. "I will go into surgery in a few hours to have a lung transplant, and begin the next chapter of my life."
Nordman, who was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when she was 4 months old, was placed on the lung transplant list in December. Her lungs are only 16 percent functional due to the disease.
Since the beginning of the year, dozens of student organizations have raised thousands of dollars for Nordman's lung transplant fund. Her family has said they will have to pay up to $75,000 for the procedure.
Nordman's surgery is slated for about 11 p.m. at the University of Chicago Medical Center, according to her mom, Nicolle Nordman.
