    I Was In China In June Of 1989

    This was before the industrial revolution that has taken place in the last 20 years. The country was bleak - everyone wore black or gray. People were, for the most part, pretty simple. They were in many ways more like cattle than human beings. That sounds rude I guess, but they...

    And I Need to Go Back...

    Going To China

    I went to China and loved it and the people at first. After getting to see better how they think about the world and others I found that they really look down on everyone who is not Chinese. They weren't very deep thinkers and can't seem to understand that there is more than one...

    I was there from 2006 to 2007.

    I had fun and I had eaten a lot of great food from small eateries to fine restaurants. I had got pregnant there and I had born my daughter in Canada 7 years ago in little town in British Columbia.

    It changed my life. It really did.

    I've learned about the importance of democracy and the right to vote... it's taken for granted too often here in the United States.
