Reflections of Visiting China

English

Sometimes it is easy to think that our world is so big, the idea that the people of China and the people of America have anything in common is hard to grasp. After all, we live on opposite ends of the world. We have thousands of miles, thousands of years of history, 15 hours, and a language barrier that separates us. But what I have learned from spending a week in Beijing is that in the things that matter most, we couldn’t be more similar.

We value love and harmony, honor and respect, family and hard work. We find joy in the relationships we have made with friends. As we associated with and shared the stage with our friends from the Beijing Dance Academy, it was evident  in our culture and in theirs that these values are present in our daily conversations and spirits.

This encounter  we have had has been one I will never forget. It has shown me that even though were are separated by thousands of miles, thousands of years of history, 15 hours and a language barrier, we will always be connected because of the values we share and the joy we feel when we are dancing.

学习收获:有时我们很容易认为,世界是如此之大,中国人民和美国人民有什么共同的想法,是很难把握的。毕竟,我们生活在世界的两极。将我们分开的,是相距万里的距离,相隔千年的历史进程,15个小时的时差,还有语言障碍。但是在北京度过的一周,使我学会了一个最重要的知识。那就是,我们有着太多的相同与类似。

我们都珍惜爱与和谐,享受荣誉和尊重,爱护家庭和辛勤工作。我们在工作中建立的友谊让我们欢乐。我们在生活中发现的朋友让我们喜悦。正如我们和北京舞蹈学院的朋友们在共享的舞台上一起舞蹈时所发现的那样,无论是我们的文化,还是他们的文化,我们共同珍惜的的这些价值,是那么明显地体现在我们每天的对话和精神交流中。

我永远都不会忘记我们在北京所经历的“相遇”。我坚信,即使我们相隔万里,有着千年不同的历史,15个小时的时差和语言障碍,我们仍然会永远地连接在一起。因为我们共同的价值观。因为我们在一起舞蹈时所感受到的那份喜悦。
