On Children's Day in 2004, Hong Kong held a special activity. In this activity, children and parents acted as the rich and the poor. In the dinner, the rich could have delicious food while the poor could only have bread with porridge.

Ma Yan is not really a writer. But this 15-year-old girl has written a book-her diary. Many people around the world have been moved by her diary.
Ma Yan's diary tells us about Ma's life. She lives in a poor village called Zhangjiashu in Tongxin,Ningxia.
Ma is now a student of Grade Nine in Yuwang Junior High School in Tongxin. Before this, she had left school twice. She had to stop studying the first time because Mom told her they didn't have any money. Then she worked for 21 days and earned 13 yuan. With the money，she went back to school.
The second time, her family told her she had to leave school so that her two brothers could stay there.
“I want to study," Ma wrote in her diary. “Why can boys study, but girls not? It would be wonderful if I could stay at school forever.”
Ma loves school so much because she wants to live a better life.“My parents work hard in the fields but they are still poor. They have no knowledge. Most girls in my village leave school early and get married when they are young. I don't want that kind of life," says Ma.
After her story became known, many French students sent money to her and other poor girls in Zhangjiashu so that they could stay at school.
Ma's dream is still the same as ever to study. She hopes to go to Tsinghua University and then become a reporter. "Then I can find poor kids like me and help them," she says.

My mother, a Chinese old lady, is very happy with today's life. She always says people are very happy today. In the past, they used light from candles and heated with wood in the fireplace (壁炉). They had to go to bed when it was dark and they didn't listen to CDs or watch television. Now people can watch TV computer games until midnight and live in warm buildings. And she doesn't need to carry water from a well(井) and wood into the house to cook over fire every day. It's a pity that they didn't have a washing machine.Now she only needs to put the dirty clothes into the machine.
My mother used to help in the garden，grow most of the food and feed the animals. My mother also says they had to walk where they wanted to go. If they were rich, they owned a horse.
