After I read Romeo’s response on Canvas, I believe we have similar ideas and feedbacks about this essay. First of all, we all think the Pengfei and his families are pitiful and sad about them because they were in an era which is very difficult to survive and live. The one-child rule made them lose lots of things such as the job and the learning opportunity as well. Secondly, we all believe we are all lucky that we have a good learning environment and can go to school to receive the education and also live in a very developed country which has high technology.
