American Revolution–The War for Freedom

This is an American revolution video was made by Reagan, Chelsea, Sayi, and me. The American Revolution video tells how the United States got rid of the British colony and regained its freedom. At that time, Britain forces the Americans to pay a lot of taxes, In addition, the income of the Americans was not high at that time. . After so many years of torture, the Americans finally couldn’t bear to resist. The whole war lasted for many years, and finally, the United States became free.

“LOST”–A Book You Should Read

This book is adapted from a true story, and these people set out to the Antarctic expedition in 1914, but the accident happened, their ship was broken, they don’t have enough food, the weather is too cold, they’re desperate, but they insist on down, and they work together finally survived, although they did not cross the Antarctic, they are still very brave, I think this book is very good but a little boring for me, because I don’t like to read the non-fiction, I prefer to read the fiction books. I think this book is suitable for the people who like science and the Antarctic the person you like to read, I learned a lot from this book, it tells us that You should work with other people persevere, never give up, and have the courage to explore.

Siege of the Legation Quarter

Personally, I think the Boxers did not deserved a bad reputation.
I understand the boxers did something unspeakable to the foreigners in general. However, they did this against a background where foreign armies were invading China. If a country is invaded by other countries and it’s should resist
The motivation of Boxers is just wanted to protect their own country and some cultural traditions. After the Opium War, more foreigners entered China. They passed on their ideas and traditions to the Chinese. The original Chinese traditional culture was being destroyed.
When other countries’ armies arrived in Beijing, the emperor and empress fled to Hebei, and foreign armies began to attack Beijing. They hated the Boxers because it was their enemy. The members of the Boxer at that time took off their special costumes and became like normal people. Foreign armies don’t know who the Boxers were. They shot innocent people on the street and killed many Chinese, but many of them were just innocent people. In 1900 they (Boxers) swept into Peking, murdered the German and Japanese ministers, and besieged the foreign legations, this also made China compensate a lot of money. The original intention of the boxer group was to protect the country, but the method was not appropriate. We can think of different places. If foreigners build churches in China, then if the Chinese build temples in other countries and let foreigners join Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism? I think the boxers should not use killing to resist the church, but we both should think in other places.
It’s a very confusing time There is a great amount of mistrust and resentment between Chinese and foreigners, so sometimes, some innocent foreigners were killed as scapegoats. China doesn’t want the ideas of other countries to affect people in China, cut the railways, and stop all communication with other countries and cities. All they do are to protect their country, although sometimes the methods and processes are not so friendly, there is really nothing wrong with the intention.

Hermia is a character in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, written by Shakespeare. Her father wanted to betroth her to Demetrius, and she openly resisted, because she loved Lysander. Hermia is a very rebellious, resolute, and unreasoning passionate person, when her father wanted to betroth her to Demetrius, she openly resisted. Even if her father asked for privileges and told her if did not marry Demetrius and he will put her to death. She doesn’t care what others think or what they said about her love. Line 80: “So, will I grow, so live, so die, my lord. Ere I will yield my virgin patent up
Unto his lordship, whose unwished yoke
My soul consents not to give sovereignty” (Shakespeare). She even runs away with her lover at all costs, Line 170 “Swear to thee by cupid’s strongest bow
By his best arrow with the golden head
By the simplicity of Venus’ doves
By that which knitted souls and prospers loves
And by that fire which burned the Carthage queen
When the false Troyan under sail was seen
By all the vows that ever men have broken
In that same place, thou hast appointed me
Tomorrow truly will I meet with thee” (Shakespeare). which shows she is brave. Because her father doesn’t let her, she marries Lysander, she takes him to run away at all costs. She the feudal etiquette. She is a brave girl with a strong personality.

Humanism

From the Middle Ages to the Renaissance, people made a big improvement ether it is art, science, education, or culture, everything is slowly getting better. Through these two eras, we can learn from them, not to worship gods blindly. We must strive for a better life through our own efforts and live in the moment!
