    • I’m so sorry that your friend , Ariel has lost a loved one to COVID19. You two sound like really good friends. I’m impressed that you guys were able to keep in touch regularly during the lockdown. Good job!!!

    • Dear Zheng,

      I am amazed about your project, “An Oral History with Ariel”, because it shows the diversity between your friendship with him and how you are both able to express yourselves. It is very great how you and Ariel are able to keep a great friendship regarding these hard times.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is, “ One of Ariel’s family members got to affect it and he was 65 years old and he died and he also has diabetes.” This sentence is emotionally saddening as some people don’t realize that this pandemic really does cause the lives of the ones we love.

      Thank you for this writing. I look forward to what your next writing is, I admire how you show the reality of how friendships can be kept even through difficult times. I would like you to continue talking about how Covid affects the lives and friendships between all.

    • Dear ZhengHao:
      I really enjoyed, your post, “An Accident in the Street” because, it’s shows that even the driver hit you he still have loyalty to the law and need to fix his mistake.
      one sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “My grandmother was a really calm person but when I got hit by the car she was getting very scared and panicked.” I think that is emotional, because as your grandmother personality is calm, but she didn’t expecting someone of her grandson will got hit by the car. In addition, honestly when the car hit someone it’s really scary.

    • Thank you for your comment

    • I feel you. When I came to the US I was bored too. Everyone is busy with their work.

    • Dear Zheng Hao Chen
      I am happy with your post, “An Accident in the Street,” because it’s really interesting and dangerous.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “A car’s rearview mirror hit me in my mouth and my face was bleeding. Blood was everywhere on the ground. When I first got hurt I felt really dizzy and then I started crying and ran back to my house.” I think this is embarrassed for you because after the car hit you, you were crying and you ran out to your home and you didn’t wanted to show your mama what happened with you in the street.
      This reminds me of an experience I had once because that happened with me once and that really stands out on me because a car almost kills me when I was 10 years old.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like how you explain what happened with you and that really makes me think I’m living the history I real life, looking at you while you crying and the ambulance takes you to the hospital.

    • Dear Zheng hao Chen
      I am very impressed by your post, “ An Accident in the street,” because it’s very thrilling and dangerous that got hit by the car rearview
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Then the driver tried to find me so the driver ran straight outside my house and start shouting“ I think the driver has a responsibility because he didn’t run away and he felt guilty about what he did to you.
      Another sentence that I was: “I remember to always think before you do something.” This stood out for me because it’s very important that you put your eyes on the road when you cross the streets.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I’m very interested in your other story.

    • Dear zhenghao i’m happy for your history “A story about learning English” because it’s really interesting because when you was in China you had the opportunity to learn English but you didn’t wanted to learn English and now you only like to type in English because you think is too easy than Chinese. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “My father spoke Chinese but my grandparents don’t, They know Chinese but is hard for them to speak so when I was at home I speak to them with Wenzhounese.” I think this is important because you couldnot talk with your parents in English because they werent able to understand you so you use to talk with them in a dialect, this remains me of an experience I had once because when Im in my bf house his family use to talk in a dialect and im not able to understand what they are saying so i just stay there sitting down and thinking about what do to with my life because i cant laugh with them cause im not even understand them. lol.
      Thanks for you writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because i like your some details and want learn more about china 🙂

    • I think that language barriers are a problem sometimes not just in conversation but in understanding politics art and more. It’s a bigger divider than the water between the continents and I think everyone can benifit from learning and experiancing things we don’t relate to.

        • Dear zhenghao,
          Thank you for writing about learning English I completely understand how hard it is learning English if it’s not you’re first language. you did a really good job.
