    The United States is a wonderful country. I do admit to myself that the average life in the United States is better than in China. You always can see the clear, blue sky. You are always in the good environment. You never need to worry about the quality of food. But I still want to go back to China. There is something special deep in my heart; China is my motherland. I do want to go back. East, west, home is the best.

    By Fan Hongya Yangzhou University Affiliated Middle School Snowden International School (Boston), 2000-2001 It is indeed hard to believe that ten years have passed since we came back to China. The scene is still vivid in my mind when my wife and daughter and Principal Li and Mr. Fu were expecting me anxiously and eagerly at Shanghai Pudong International Airport. I AM FINALLY BACK. This was what I wanted to say to them when I saw them.
