We had a special and meaningful night on the day. Every two people formed a small unit. One was wearing a mask on the eyes, another played a role of his/her guide to take him/her go through long road, in which there were barriers, stumbling stones and thorns. Deep mutual trust and team spirit were reflected on this game. Members shared happy tears and touching words after the game.
On the second day’s morning, we tried a challenge which was totally new to every member. It was a huge breakthrough in bravery and confidence. Everyone needs to climb up to a 8-meter -high metal ladder (under protection of professional staffs and equipment) and jump for a handle which is 1.2 meters away from himself/herself. Many felt terror before successful landing, many hesitated to jump after getting top of the ladder, some even shrieked because of fear.
After all participants tried successfully and overcome their psychological fears, there were laughter and joy. We reviewed our feelings we had felt when we had been on the high spot, we exchanged our new ideas about the challenge after doing it, we went through complex and totally different emotions. We trusted our partners and believed in team spirit, so we dared to jump out, our partners were controlling protecting cords for us, they were with us close.
The meaningful 2 days went quickly, each of us think the 2 days are an important stage during our life. Through it, we learnt what real team spirit is.
