Education is the light of our life 
It is the key to a bright future

It gives our thinking a different appearance 
And helps drive away all our ignorance 
It leads us to the path of the success 
Knowing the significance of it 
without education, we realize we are somewhere incomplete.

For example in Singapore, there are some cases that the children are so stressed and sick of their parent constant nagging and pressuring remarks that they have committed suicide. So it is possible that Kevin will do the same way if he under great pressure with...
