I am very confident of the bright future of the world. No matter what has taken place, all the people are longed for the happy life of their own. So if we can come to a compromised plan that will satisfy most of us, we can share a good life.

I think there are still a lot of difficulties for Americans in getting to know about the true situations of other countries. So it's easy for many Americans to misunderstand other countries. In my country few people and no media express malice about the USA and almost every one understand both the native government and the US government well though some Americans think badly of the Chinese government even people in China. Actually few people have malice ;it's because they really don't know a true China such as the changes in China how most people live in China. Besides neither America nor China want to be divided. For example Tibet and Xinjiang have been firm parts of China for hundreds of years ,of course no one like to see they are not of China. All in all I hope more Americans can come to China and experience the progress of civil rights in China.

Everything, not only life, country and politics, is stuck in a endless circle from initiation to Vanishment. Nothing will be gone, just exist in another form. The same thing is happening in Terrorist attack: Peace has lasted long, then it will be replaced or reshuffled by another form, if War has lasted long, it also will be changed into another form. So see what can change the peace? It must be the reversed thing which we call War or Terrorist attack. We can predict the threshold by the Public's some sort of figure and the history of a country.

9.11 is not only a tragedy for Americans, but also a frightening alarm for the rest of the world. It reminds us of the cruelty and inhumanity of those terrorists. On the other hand, it calls on all the peace-loving people to unite, to fight and to make effort together to eradicate unsafe factors. I firmly believe the American government can do an excellent job to ensure security for its citizens.

there will be more more and conflicts and large scale terrorist attack in the future because the gap will be larger and larger between the rich and the poor. so to build up the bridge between them is only one way,there is no other way to go.----priscillachina@yahoo.com.cn
