Summer in China（2 ）
Population is a big problem in China. In the 50s, with a population of nearly half a billion which already
ranks number one in the world.
Mao Tze Dong, the Chairman of The Central Government of China, encouraged everybody in China to
raise more children so China could become stronger, he was about part right of it. Because right after
that, China had gotten stronger since that China had more workers to produce more handmade goods
which is really valuable in western countries, such as France and England, but on the other hand, the
more people the country has, the more the country must provide for the people, stuff like food and shelter.
This summer I revisited the Tian An Men Square.
On October the 1st, 1949, Chairman Mao stood here ( just as the place where I was standing) and
declared that the People’s Republic of China was formed, there were one million people below the
there to listen to his speech.
I had also visited Tian Tan, it is a temple where the emperors prayed to the heaven every year for good
harvest, and asking no natural disasters or stuffs like that.
There is a special road where only the emperor could walk on it. I really like walking on that road when I
was young, It made me feel that I am someone special.
One of the most attractive sites to see is the Great Wall of China….
It is one of the seven wonders in the world, as well as one of the only two constructions that can be seen
by Human eye from the space shuttle. It has been cited by UNESCO as a world cultural heritage.
On the way home from the Great Wall, I was surprised to hear that some of the farmers in the nearby
villages once tried to use the 200 pound each cement blocks on the Great Wall to build there own homes
by taking it apart.
They didn’t understand the cultural value and the importance of the Great Wall, because it was there for
thousands of year, it belongs to all the human being.
That made me really mad and I want to make the farmers put the cement blocks back on the Great Wall.
I am glad to hear that there is a law in China to protect and to preserve the Great Wall now.
