This is shanghai. This is china.
In nanmo, teachers make students go to the field and do morning exercises when schools in Nanking are closed on urgent alert. Educational authorities suggest students avoid outdoor activities. Our lovely principals do not listen but let us keep doing outdoor exercises on “purpose” of building a “stronger body”.
Students want real meaning healths. Some one called police. The result was being lectured by teachers for hours. My mom said you can reject doing exercises. Yet when I asked my home room teacher, she said “please do it for me, for my job.” I cannot understand teachers, I cannot understand my school, I cannot understand this city any more.
Right, good morning Mr. Coward. Have a good day.
Smog, cough, masks. These are now the symbols of shanghai.
Everything is good. The teachers, the court, the basket, the supportive boys and girls, the team, the adversities. No complains, no shame, no regrets. All that happened because we do CARE.
So. It is what it is. I finished it. And I will do it one more time. Commitment.
I know my knee is killing me. I also know I am killing the race.
I want to tattoo in your life.
