Space Exploration

华夏寄语

新学年志贺

时光荏苒, 岁月如梭, 不知不觉中华夏迎来了第十八个学年。  古时候, 人们把十八岁的女孩子比作碧玉和桃李. 而十八岁的小伙子就快要束发而冠, 变成大人了。 十八岁的华夏经历了无数的喜乐和烦恼,  也和我们的孩子们一起成长为大人了。 在此我们和所有的华夏新老朋友们同贺。  
欣喜之余, 面对一个长大的华夏, 大家一定也会问, 再过十八年后的华夏又会是什么模样呢? 会更高, 更强壮, 真正变成一个"而立"和"不惑"的栋梁之才吗? 这不仅是我们所有华夏人的美好愿景。我们更有一个信念, 在无数家长, 老师, 和志愿者的呵护下,  这个愿景一定会变成现实。... Continued
