English Video Assignment
Many Americans today have little idea what life is like in China. Some Americans will never get a chance to experience China and because of this may not be able to relate to the people of China. They may ask, what is China like economically, are its citizens Rich, or are they poor? The video “Are Chinese People Rich” gives the viewer a glimpse into the opinions of some of China's average citizens.

“The Importance of Chinese History”
Children are almost like gods in China. In the video series Life After Loss, everything the family is depends on them: their worth, their honor, and most importantly their future. Without their children these parents are nothing. In this video we get to see the parents come together and form a group that lends them comfort, as well as strength. In the chapter “People” from China in Ten Words, Yu Hua’s meaning of “the people” slowly changes. At first he does not understand the strength one gets within a group, but in the end he realizes that people are stronger when they stand together.

When people imagine being a hero, most would probably describe a fantasy of flying, having super strength or laser beam vision. It’s difficult to picture how a normal citizen, forever unknown, could embody the title of a hero with a simple action of stopping midway through a downtown crosswalk. In the video “Man vs. Chinese Tank Tiananmen Square” found online at YouTube, an anonymous man steps in front of a row of more than a dozen Chinese tanks in China’s Tiananmen Square with hopes they will stop their continued assault on unarmed protestors.
