I’ve decided to share some of the things that my students write in their journals. Some of them are really cute and funny. Those little rascals really make me smile sometimes. It’s amazing how insightful they can be when you figure out what they are trying to say. Sometimes I wish we could just communicate on the same level because I could understand them so much better. Then again, if we could communicate on the same level, I guess they wouldn’t need a teacher. These entries will be posted exactly as they are written. They won’t make much sense, but give them a break – they’re Chinese.
Question: Is it ever okay to steal? In what situation would be alright to steal from someone?
“Not really. If you steal other’s things, like money, diamond…, is not okay. If you steal other’s heart, I think that is okay, because it is good for each other, maybe. So, the things you steal is others, the things belong to others, not you, and the things is other hardworking to get, you cannot steal others fruits. Heart is not, you can steal it, but you can only steal one, you can not steal more, because if you steal more, it is a hurt to the heart formerly.”
