In 2005, three rice farmers in Tainan, Taiwan, became famous because of the movie Let It Be. The movie shows how the three farmers live and work on the land. People are surprised by their stories and by their love for the land they live on.

For the farmers, the land is the only hope they see in life. They stay happy in the light of hope, whether the light is strong or weak. Even in hard times, the farmers still give thanks to the land and keep working happily on their farms. When their farms grow very little rice, they just laugh and say, “It’s OK. Don’t worry! We’re still living a happy life!”

That is the way many Taiwanese farmers live with their problems. They work hard and never ask for much from the land. All they want is to love and live for it. Because of the movie, the world can remember the farmers in Taiwan for their hard work and their “let-it-be” idea about life.

Dear Wendy,

You ask me to send you a picture of my family. Here it is.

The picture was taken in our garden by my cousin. It took me some time to get everyone together. My younger sister, Gigi, was so excited about taking pictures. She made my mom stand between my two brothers, and made my dad walk to the back and then to the front. Finally, she had him sit down under the tree. She even made our dog, Rover, move three times, but Rover did not like the idea of taking picture, so he ran into his doghouse. I am the one behind the doghouse. As for Gigi, can you see where she is?
