1.Some say growing up in rich family promotes children's personality and character. Some think otherwise. What's your opinion? Why?
Well, it's quite a question argued by people all the time. I think a person's personality has little relation to his family economic level. It's commonly said that a child in rich family will has more chances and better choice for his study. However, if the kid himself isn't aware of this, that is all in vain. It's not unusual that many children from rich family are quite rude and conceited although they are always receive the best education. Then, how about the poor family's children? There is another saying that adversity cultivates heroes. To be honest, I disagree with it too. Poor children should learn harder and catch every chance to strengthen themselves. However, the reality is often not like that. Subjectively speaking, poor children are easy to feel inferior and thus can't study well. Even if they study well, they hardly do well in practicing ability. Objectively speaking, poor children can hardly receive good and plentiful education because of the economic limit. That will cause deficiency in some literal or artistic talent such as music or dance. Therefore, I think children's personality have little relation to their family situation.
2.In universities, students should take history courses no matter what field they study. Do you agree?
I disagree with it even though I do know history is important. I'm a student major in electricity. To be honest, I think there is little sense for students in university taking history courses no matter what field they study. Maybe many people would say, history is something left by our ancestors, so we shouldn't forget it. Yes, I agree with that. History need to be remembered. But in fact, we have been learning history from primary school. I really it's enough for people like me whose major has little relation to history. I just take history exam last year. For me, it was really a nightmare. I spent so much time on it and still can remember all. Now that we're chosen engineering, I can't understand why we need and have to learn history again. The time spent on history learning should be used for our major courses.
My dear friends,
Do you know what is the most precious and everlasting thing in the world? Money? You may lose everything you have if you don't use money careful enough.Youth?In one's long life youth is like a flash in the pan and no one in the world has the secret to keep his youth forever. Beautiful look? Many people pray that they can get hold of beauty, but it disappears far more quickly than they can imagine. And when they are in real trouble beauty itself feels helpless. A good job? As you grow older and your brain and hands can't work as fast as before. It will become other people's wealth.
Then what is the most precious and everlasting thing in the world?
When you are far away from your family and feel especially lonely, who will you think of? When you stand on the crossroad in your life and don't know which way to choose, who will you think of? When you encounter greater difficulties than ever and need other's encouragement, who will you think of? When you decide to make the greatest decision in your favorite course, which shed cheerful tears when see you get achievements? Whose wholehearted blessing will be always with you no matter how far you will go?
Yes, its mother who you will always think of and it's mother's love that will be always be with you.
I once heard a moving story about a mother. Two children were drawn into the flood and the situation was very dangerous. Their mother jumped into the water without hesitation. But the mother couldn't swim at all. Jumping into the water means she might lose her life. But at that time she had no time to think about herself. She just wanted to try all means to save her children. Maybe her courage touched the God. The miracle happened. She finally succeeded in saving her both children. And she, of course, felt extremely exhausted.
My friends, mother’s love is the greatest love. Mother’s love is the safest love. No matter you are happy or depressed, rich or poor, mother’s love will always stay with you.
Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen, honorable judges.As a citizen of a country, I have a birth certificate, a household register and a identity card.
I am entitled to certain rights, responsibilities and privileges.
I have freedom of movements in the country, I obey the country’s laws, and I enjoy the convenience of social policies and so on .What about a citizen of globe? Is there anything to characterize the global citizenship? A certificate, a register or certain rights? Not really.
Global citizenship means a world where people are treated and respected equally for who they are.
It is about helping people that are less fortunate.
It is about inclusiveness.
Interacting and working together is the core of being and belonging.
We need to realize how important our connections are with others in our friendships, our neighborhoods, our communities, and with our planet.
In another word, Global Citizenship is about people’s awareness of seeking the common good.
It is about everyone.Is my idea too abstract? Here I’ve got a vivid example.
When I was a child, my father always told me some stories about the past generation.
Once he told me a story about a doctor.
When the doctor heard people suffering in Spain because of the civil war, he came to help.
He saw many people dying just because they had no money.
Then he proposed a system that enabled the poor to have medical treatment.
It is the beginning of the idea of Socialized Medical Care.
After the war, the doctor worked hard to improve the treatment of tuberculosis.
In 1938, the second Sino-Japanese war broke out in China.
The fifty-year-old doctor came to help again.
During his years in China, he trained more than 1000 Chinese to be medics and doctors.
It was him that designed the world’s first mobile medical unit which saved thousands of lives.In the story, what impressed me most was a description of this admirable doctor.
My father could still remember it even after decades.
It was “his utter devotion to others without any thought of self was shown in his great sense of responsibility in his work and his great warm-heartedness towards all comrades and the people”.Till now, you must know the doctor.
You are right.
It is Norman Bethune, a distinguished surgeon.
He was a medical hero who helped unite two countries by showing our common humanity beyond cultural and political differences.What kind of spirit is this that makes a foreigner selflessly adopt the cause of the Chinese peoples liberation as his own? It is called the spirit of global citizenship-seeking the common good.As a doctor, Norman Bethune did his best.
