This article is written by Oliver Song who attended the Civic Leadership Forum at Ding Ding TV on March 15th 2019
I recently went to this event at a TV station. I listened to different types of heroes. One hero was talking about how he started an organization for homeless people. He cooked breakfast for homeless people. Every Sunday he would make food for the kids that would rarely get food. He would give backpacks, blankets, and other stuff that would help the people through this difficult time of struggle. Another hero talked about how he caught someone with 3 guns on the BART, and 2 robbers. The policemen thanked him over and over again, asking if he wanted anything. The man said no, I reported the person to save people not to earn a reward. Even though these people aren’t heroes like firefighters or superheroes, they still made a difference in the community. That is the definition of a hero someone who helps the community.
How can you help others without money? Would you risk your own life to help strangers in danger?
We invite two heroes, Nathan Ganeshan and Liu Lei, from both Indian and Chinese communities in this quarter’s civic leadership forum.
Nathan & his family started serving hot pizza to the homeless during special family occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries. Over a period of time, friends and family began to join him in this endeavor. As he began to notice the interest amongst his close circle to feed the homeless, Nathan decided to found Community Seva Inc. in June 2013.
Fremont resident, Lei Liu, took BART train to San Francisco to watch New Year Eve fireworks. Then, he discovered a black male passenger carrying two handguns. Liu informed the train driver and called 911 at Powell Station in San Francisco. Police arrested the suspect on train at the station within a few minutes after his calling.
Our focus for this forum is to show our next generation how to take the responsibility and build a better communities in the future.We invite two heroes from communities to talk and share what they have done for communities.
Date/Time: March 15th. Supper will be served at 5:30pm, event will start at 6:00pm, end at 7:30pm.
Location: Ding Ding TV. (Free Parking Lot)
