To: All I want to let the chinese that are really here for support know that I am sorry for being so rude,and crass during this time. Now I do not like the CCP at all and belive in democracy for everyone. I feel angry and jaded at the world at this moment in my life because someone really close to me in my family died a few weeks ago. I have had a rough year and can be very snappy and mean at times. I do apologize and my prayers go out to all the innocents lost. I was just thinking about this last night about my family and my loss and thought I would say sorry.
845 posted on 2008年5月13日 21:24:14 by MARKUSPRIME --------------------------------------------------------- Hello，MARKUSPRIME，I feel sorry about your family.Our existence is far more tenuous than we might think.Place your hand over your chest and feel your heartbeat.That is actually your life clock ticking,and one day it will stop.That is 100 percent guaranteed,and theres absolutely nothing you can do about it.Like everyone else,we will have some days that are better than others.Occasionally,everything may seem like a total disaster area.Just like the tough times we have.So let us give our prayers to all kindly people and thanks to the god for we still alive.
MARKUSPRIME,I am a Chinese,15 years old student in nanning,guangxi province.I also lost my father because the cancer in 2 years ago.I felt very sad ,very helpless but didnt felt hopeless.Because I know my father never leave away from me.And my father taught me that ever problem has a lifespan.No problem is permanent.Storms always give way to the sun.Winter always thaws into springtime. All problem will be solved. MARKUSPRIME,In this tough time,you may not be able to control the times, but you can compose your response.You can turn your pain into protanity---or into poetry.Of cause,the choice is up to you.You may not have chosen your tough time,but you can choose how you will react to it.
Life is very like a mirror:if you smile upon it ,it smiles back upon you;but if you frown and look doubtful on it ,you will get a similar look in return.Inner sunshine warms not only the heart of the owner,but of all that come in contact with it.who shuts love out,in turn shall be shut from love.
MARKUSPRIME,I guess you have never been to china before,and you know nothing about the Chinese culture and history at all.You learn about china form the Western media. I must to say, I really dont see any love, generosity, friendship or cooperation from the recent report of Western media and politics,except full of bias/distortion. And Most of the time, you westerns don't really realize that they are just biases - you think you're just being reasonable.
So, MARKUSPRIME,I dont want to talk about politics,but I want to tell you about my feeling,as an ordinary Chinese.In my experience,you (American/ westerns)always believe in youselves,as you do not believe in others.You permit all things to youselves,and that which you call sin in others.So you criticize all the time.
For me, I was rich,if not meney,in sunny hours and summer days.I can go shares my beatufull time with my nearest and dearest.So,however mean my life is,I just meet it and live it;never shut it and call it hard names.It is not so bad as I am.As we know,the fault-finder will find faults even in paradise.So I love my peaceful life,poor as it is.I may perhapshave some pleasant,thrilling,glorious hours,even in a poor-house.The setting sun is reflected from the window of the alms-house as brightly as from yours abode.So let me be grateful that I have suffered no intolerable wrong,no terrible woe of flesh or spirit,such as my fathers(grandfathers). Is it not much to have accomplished so large a part of the mortal journey with so much ease?
This day,I pay my attention to some guys words,those makes me feel confused. I dont know why do we get so hung up on what we dont agree on,when in fact its our differences that make life interesting?After all,half the world is upside down,so theres absolutely no reason why we would all agree on everything.Even something as basic and profound asDont chew with your mounth open is not as widely accepted as you might think.
Why is it that when passions are inflamed we choose to argue and fight,when dancing the cha-cha is less injurious,far more enjoyable,and equally effective in resolving thesion?And why do we feel drawn together sometimes,yet we steadily build up defensive barriers around our innermost feelings and beliefs so we can never be truly close to anyone?
I think , we all have filters on, so we mostly see only what we want to see.So, when you finally open your eyes,you may be shocked at the obscured way you have been viewing the world to suit your own little plans.With those filters removed,you can take a closer look into yourself and others.
Finally,I want to say, MARKUSPRIME,your apologetic post make me warm.So I decide to say some words to you and to all kindly American,whom pray for the vitcims in the earthquake.THANK YOU.In the end, MARKUSPRIME,I wanna say to you,tough times never last,but tough people do.Storms always give way to the sun.Winter always thaws into springtime.Your storm will pass.Your wither will thaw.Your problem will be solved.And ours too.(I expect you and all the american in this board can see what I said)
Ah, I see that FR late night is just how I remember it.
That is how we see the Chinese, just as you have described us. Think about it.
Hello every one,I glad to meet you in here,and I must to go to school now,Ill be back with you guys as soon as possible. god bless,and prayers for the people who suffering in the earthquake.THANHS FOR YOUR REPLY!
Are you in China right now? Did you have any trouble signing on to Free Republic?
I am traveling to China later this year. My wife and I are adopting a little girl.
You have my sympathy and prayers on the loss of your father to cancer. God be with you and comfort and provide for you.
Yes, you are rich if you have the beauty of the earth around you and peace and joy in living and the love of family for you.
Freedom is what I long for - for all people of the world - instead of the thieves in government who seek to live in glorious riches while oppressing their own people.
Fortunately, for China, it appears much more freedom has come for its people. Freedom to worship God and His Son Jesus Christ without the government stopping that worship or putting the leaders of that worship into prison or, as in days past, of murdering Christians.
In the US, we see our freedoms being threatened by the pro-communists now “running” for the Presidency, and by the ever increasing taxes and regulations that would do away with our freedoms in this country.
As a former communist said to me once when asked if the communists would ever retake power in Russia...he said there are fools in every country.
Would you agree?
He is here because apparently he has freedom right now to post on the Internet. However, there were some people on another thread who said that recently, Fox News and a few other sites had been blocked on their end.
Perhaps their government is allowing them to post here as a show of good will, perhaps it is a test to see how it goes, or perhaps their government is unaware of them posting here at all.
Wouldn't it be better if all were able to continue posting here without restrictions from their government than for them to suddenly disappear because discussions here about the catastrophic earthquake switched rapidly over into politics.
Just a thought.
Saved for later.
“Are you in China right now? Did you have any trouble signing on to Free Republic?”
I got a funny feeling about this...
Exercise extreme caution.
Why should Papertyger exercise extreme caution? Is there something wrong with Papertyger posting a hello to the new person from China? I'm curious.
Just a little word of caution about corresponding with strangers from non-free nations.
In China, the wrong sort of political statement can get you thrown into prison. Kinda like the U.S. should Hillary win.
That does not answer what I was asking.
Worst case scenario, what is wrong with strangers posting here? You're a stranger to me, I'm a stranger to you, we both assume that we are both Americans but really unless I had met you during a FReeper event, there would be no way I could confirm that you had ever set foot in the USA. And even if I had met you, and assumed from your unbroken English that you were a native born American, you could still be a foreign spy.
So what if you were a foreign spy? Wouldn't then your exposure here to discussion about how concerned Americans are about the catatrophic events in China go a long way to making things better?
My condolences to you on the death of your father and to you and your people on the recent tragedy in China.
I will continue to pray for your country and for those who have been affected by this earthquake.
Thank you for sharing your experiences with us at FR.
Maybe it’s just Chinese teenage angst posted on FR. Be kind.
As another American guy said, the Chinese are very shy. In fact, when we say something here we are afraid that may hurt someone. I always hurt and you always hurt me. That’s because we believe in something different. But we - you and me - don’t want to hurt each other. We are all human. I really appreciate your care for us, especially those now in earthquake area so much. And I do believe you are good persons. I can tell you that when I read some, if not all, western medias, I really fell hurt so much, because i feel that they don’t look us as equal. They think they are the judger. Maybe they think most Chinese hate the gov, but i can tell you NO. While when we say no, they call us nationalism.
Hmmmm.... “chinaboy” signs up May 12, then “YetAnotherChinaBoy” signs up with a very similar name on May 13......Hmmmmm
Right, but he's here now as are others from China. If it's by accident then let's pray that they can continue posting here. We can learn from them as much as they can learn from us. If it's by design that they are here, that also can be good.
My prayers are for all in China who have been injured, killed or affected by this terrible earthquake. Politics can wait awhile while there is great and immediate human need for compassion, understanding and prayer.
Give us all a break with that kinda stuff. Please.
All I’m saying is, this is the Internet. You have no idea if this guy or guys is/are who they say they are. It has happened before (see DITHF). EVERY time there is a tragedy, people come out of the woodwork to prey on the victims and those expressing sympathy. I’m just saying be cautious.
You cant cross a chasm in two small leaps.It takes courage and commitment to make your understanding,forgive me for my poor English,I cant reply so quickly because I have to use a dictionary to help me to understand your words.But I just try my best to understand you ,and you dont.
You mean there are tow “chinaboy”?Can you tell me where I can find the other chinaboy?
Yes indeed and I do remember DITHF....which ended up being quite foolish, didn’t it?
Such is cyberworld. And such is Free Republic!
Of course one can be “taken in” by a faker here....because we have “freedom” here.
Freedom.....that is this place’s hallmark, that is (was) our nation’s hallmark.
Would that it would become the hallmark for the Chinese people and for all the world’s people as well.
Look at post 29.
See the name on post #29.
God bless the Chinese people affected by the recent earthquake.
Hello, never4get,thank you for you reply,but my feeling is not very good,because you just donot believe me,and call me another chinaboy.You didnt know I had spended a lot of to write out this article.And I think you dont care about it at all.I just try to communicate with you,and make more understanding with each other.Do you think it is nothing at all,do you?
Welcome to Free Republic. I am a US citizen but living in an Asian country to the south of you. You asked us not to stereotype you, in other words believing what the media outlets tell us about China and its people. We don’t. Let me assure that more people who post at Free Republic hate the established news media and never believe anything they say about anything. We would rather find out for ourselves by communicating with first-hand witnesses.
Having said that, please do not put all Americans in the same category either. We don’t allow ourselves license and deny it to others. Righteousness and goodness are the same for everybody and sin is sin no matter who commits the acts. Americans differ from region to region just as Chinese differ from province to province.
We are glad that you are posting on Free Republic. We welcome you. You have surprised us. We have been led to expect, especially as recent interaction with the Olympic Torch guards has demonstrated, that the Chinese government limits and controls communication from the Chinese people. I am glad to see that freedom has come to you.
Hello, never4get,thank you for you reply,but my feeling is not very good,because you just donot believe me,and call me another chinaboy.You didnt know I had spended a lot of time to write out this article.And I think you dont care about it at all.I just try to communicate with you,and make more understanding with each other.Do you think it is nothing at all,do you?
We think that it is indeed something to have someone from China communicating with us. Thank you for taking the trouble.
You must understand though, that we have been hurt. Other people have come to Free Republic and pretended one thing and another. We have believed them and later found they lied to us. Please understand that some of us are cautious and need time to get to know you.
We are all types of people, with a similar mind. One of the things we have learned is that we must "thicken our skin". That means that we must not pay heed to those who speak bad or harmfully. Their words are to be heeded as the rain on a duck's back. It falls to the ground and wastes it's purpose.
Americans are nationalistic, as is China. But, we are all people of this planet, and have the same end goal. We wish to live a comfortable life, surrounded by family and friends, with a rood over our head. We work hard to provide nice things for them, and ourselves.
We all share a common goal, tomorrow! Let us join our voices and minds to bring the world together, regardless of nations. We are it's people!
We pray for China and it's families. It is a sad time for us all.
Oh,God,I don’t know anything about it.So it become an evidence to prove me is a hellion or a spy,all right?
"Be cautious"? With all due respect, SW6906, you're the one I'm feeling uneasy about right now.
"DITHF" So they're all fake Germans now, eh? For crying out loud, what in the world happened to you personally when the fake German was exposed as a fake German? Did you lose your computer? Did you lose your ability to write? Did the fake German steal your thoughts, plagiarize, do anything to hurt you or any of your loved ones? I sure hope you didn't send him a key to your house. That would be absurd, but hey, this whole paranoia your espousing is straight out of the theater of absurd.
Do you believe that any troll would suddenly be able to control thought or change anything about our freedom here?
There is a great deal lost when you close yourself off to learning something new from someone who very well might be who he/she says they are.
If you are in fact an American, have you ever considered how close-minded and repressive you sound worrying about someone writing on the Internet?
Besides, this is about a catastrophe in China where I am praying for all in China who were affected by this earthquake.
Ya wanna try and take away my right to feel compassion, and sadness over their loss? Ya gonna tell me I have no right to pray for those lost in this devastating catastrophe?
In knowing that the simple things in life are the most precious, you show great wisdom.
In knowing that our differences can make us stronger, you show great compassion.
In knowing that our media can (and does) shape our opinions, you show great intelligence.
Thank you for your post, and Welcome to FR!
