    Conflict In China

    The situation going on in China is heartbreaking. Since the ending months of 2019, the Chinese government has forced a certain group to the outskirts of its society. They have singled out the Muslim population in the whole country...

    • Dear Emmanuel:
      I am Agreeing with your post, “Conflict in China,” because there were things that i heard that should not be happening. Some of the things im reading is just inhumane.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ they are even denying the fact that they have people in camps and attempting to “re-educate” them because they don’t do certain things that others do.” I think this is disgusting because people should be able to do what they want and they should be able to follow their religion without any people trying to change them.
      Another sentence that I saw was: “Chinese government is attacking the Muslim population in its country just because they don’t agree with their religious beliefs, which goes against human rights” This stood out for me because again i also thought that this was inhumane and the muslim population that lives in china should not be going through this just because the chinese government doesnt agree with the muslim religion.
      I do agree with you that we should try to stop this issue. One reason I say this is taht people have gone through this before and we know what happened so i thibk that we shouldnt repeat history. Another reason I agree with you is that this is inhumane and should not be allowed to continue and no one should ever experience something like this

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you just brought up a situation that i dont even know about.

    • Emmanuel,

      I appreciate that you shed light on the despicable act by the CCP in this post. The Chinese government has certainly violated human rights and needs to be confronted and held accountable. One thing you said that stood out to me is “Although we may not be of the same religion I still see them as another person and just because they have certain beliefs they shouldn’t be treated that way.” This shows that even you don’t necessarily share the same religious beliefs, you still have compassion and care for those who are brutally oppressed and silenced. Others should follow your example and realize that differences are inherent and often good. The minority should not be punished for simply being the minority. Rather, they should be allowed to leave in peace and under their own direction. The CCP must stop its oppression of dissenters and open the country to a more democratic system. Thank you for your post; it was very informative and championed a great message. I look forward to reading more posts from you in the future! Thank you.


  • I totally agree with you and yes some of us are fortunate to have had a sports season this fall, like I was lucky to play at least two games of my season before I got hurt. Some athletes are indeed struggling and don’t know how to coup with the pandemic and yes this is where resilience is truly key so that we realize that even though we are not in…Read More
