Chinese language Baha'i books

In Caotun Township, Taiwan ROC, two youth and four adults rolled up sleeves, braving thick dust to take inventory of a Chinese Language publishing trust, uncovering some hidden gems! Speaking of language…

I found it relevant to the photo to cite the English definitions of this month’s name, ‘Might’:

1. Used to express possibility

2. Power or ability to do or accomplish; capacity

3. Superior power or strength

How does ‘Might’ translate in the 6,499 other languages? In the 6,697,254,041 hearts and minds?

Alisa is an Executive Assistant for the Vice Chancellor for Communications and Public Affairs at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. As a Baha’i, she serves her local community through hosting artistic prayer devotionals and thoughtful dialogues centered around the needs of the current times. She prefers to shoot still scenes that invoke feeling, and her favorite living thing to photograph is children.
