Should Boxers Deserve A Bad Reputation?
A group of Chinese people formed a Rebellion that tries to defend China being controlled and they sought to end all foreign influence in the country so that it could be stable again. But the “Boxer Rebellion” should actually deserve a bad reputation.
Evidence #1: The Shanxi Province
The boxers tried to force all the Christian foreigners who was sought to change people’s belief, and so the Boxer’s gathered them in one place and just killed all of the people because they “betrayed” them into changing people’s belief in their country.
Evidence #2: The Opium War
The Boxers tried to force the Chinese government to let them sell and buy goods . That is for British Merchants that wants to sell opium which made China weakened because of this drug.
In this opinion, my idea is that the ‘Boxers” shouldn’t treat the Christian foreigners that bad, and since they did the wrong thing, they should try to make a law about how the foreigners can’t influence people in China for the beliefs, so that there shouldn’t be the opium war and the Christian foriegners wouldn’t be killed after.
“ The little girl who would not work” By Carolyn Sherwin Bailey
Do you ever wonder about the people that doesn’t work? In this retelling of an old fable, a little girl would rather play all day than work. This story shows about how a little girl changed from idle to industrious. Sometimes everyone wants to be lazy. Putting down the work, playing for an entire day. But that’s not realistic. Everyone has to work, and there’s no time to waste. You’ve played around and find that you’re getting behind. Sooner or later, you’re going to get left behind while everyone succeeded.
In the story the little girl who would not work, by Carolyn Sherwin Bailey the author believes that no matter what you do, when people realize their mistake, quickly correcting is going to be the best way to solve the problem. While the little girl went back, she suddenly found out that everyone’s working except for her. “I am the only idle one. I want some work to do.” This shows how and proves that the little girl changed in the end. “Well that she was not that idle anymore, but very industrious.” Now everyone’s working. There’s no wasting time. This points out how the author wants to show how other people can set a good example, making other people achieve too. This is also why the little girl changed by the end of story.
