Yesterday (2nd April) was World Autism Awareness Day.
In the spirit of understanding and raising awareness about people around us with autism, especially children, this shopkeeper recommends the series of graphic novel by Tobe Keiko, “With the Light: Raising an Autistic Child”.
Translated from Japanese into English, the 8-volume Manga deal with a young couple coping with the discovery that their infant son is autistic.
“In the alternately heartwarming and bittersweet tale, the young mother tries to cope with both the overwhelming discovery of her child's autism and the trials of raising him while keeping her family together. This is a story that resonates not only for those whose families have been affected by autism, but also for all past, present, and future parents.”
The complete series is available in store.
Each year around this time, Mr Warren Buffett releases his annual letter to Berkshire Hathaway Inc.'s shareholders. And when it is put on the Company's website, many investors, whether they are shareholders or not, will make an attempt to read it and hope to gain some insights into the wisdom of the investors' investor (here is the link to the letter).
One of the sentences that struck this shopkeeper reads:
"If a statue is ever erected to honor the person who has done the most for American investors, the hands- down choice should be Jack Bogle."
Indeed, this shopkeeper can understand the choice of Mr Buffett, as Mr Bogle was the founder of Vanguard Group and widely regarded as the father of index funds. He has read several of his books and regarded one ("The Little Book of Common Sense Investing") to have given him a good foundation in understanding the investing activities as a whole.
