Please add at least one image and list your images below your article text including (1) the name of the author of each image and (2) a suggested caption.

Photos, drawings and computer graphics, etc. should have at least 180 dpi and 3,000 pixels on the longest side. If the size of your images is larger than 10MB, please use WeTransfer, Dropbox or a similar file transfer application.

Many photos show a group of people listening to someone talking. Although this is what often happens at meetings and other events, pictures showing other scenes are most appreciated.

If you can give your son or daughter only one gift,
let it be enthusiasm.
