TOPIC A: School=Sanctuary of Safety and Learning

On the morning of April 16, 2007, a resident student opened fire in a Virginia Tech dorm and then, two hours later, shot up a classroom across campus, killing 32 people before he turned the gun at himself. The whole world was shocked at the deadliest campus rampage in US history.
We have the tightest gun control in the world, so tragedies similar to what took place at Virginia Tech are quite unlikely in China. However, as a result of violence movies and video games prevalent among schooling teenagers, violence incidents, in various forms, multiply, as some researches discover.
Do you think currently and in the future we can foresee we can keep our schools sanctuaries of safety and learning? Why? If not, what should we do?

TOPIC B: Tickets for Olympics go on sale

More than seven million tickets have been on sale for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, as announced by the Beijing Organizing Committee for the Games of the XXIX Olympiad (BOCOG). About 75% of the tickets will be sold domestically and the rest will be available to the overseas public.

Will you buy tickets and watch your favorite events at the site then? What are your most favorite Olympic events?

to Joyce & Amber

Thanks, both you girls.

As a matter of fact, I could've failed to suppress my anger with the irresponsible and prejudgemental media, such as Sohu. Finally, I gave up my mind to do it for various reasons.

32 victims died in the deadliest school rampage in Virginia the day before yesterday, and 30 steel workers lost their lives in an accident Tieling, Liaoning Province yesterday, and a Japanese mayor was assassinated, most probably, by the local mafia. Life is so vulnerable! So let cherish what we've got now.

By the way, thanks, Amber, I've done as you instructed.

Care about what is going on around us, and know what has happened in the other parts of the world. Topic one is easy to discuss with. I like it. The problem is there always.
