While installing this piece, I had experienced several oppositions and pressures. School administrators unexpected rallied to me and tried to abort my installation. Nevertheless, I persuaded every individual administrator, and could finish my installation. Overcoming these difficulties, I could feel sympathy for my grandfather who experienced while settling down in unfamiliar environment.
