18: Hello Dad, Everything over here is well I miss you and the rest of the family a lot and I can't wait to Skype with you all later. How is the business going? I can't wait to get back and see all that you've accomplished since I left. However I came across the statistics that Chinas economy is dealing harshly with unemployment and crime. I believe strongly that the cause of crime is unemployment, people have gone mad because they are running out of money.Which is going on in America somewhat and we've been seeing devastating crimes lately.

19: What could be a solution to the people of China? How does this employment for them in this horrible economy work out? I remember how you pulled through your unemployment of about 3 years. But how do they pull through this when their economy doesn't really help them? These thoughts came to my head because you have dealt with this situation. Most of the time these people don't deserve to lose their jobs. The Chinese Government needs to do a better job of taking care of their people that are unemployed, maybe it will lower the crime rate. What do you think? Love, Diamond

Coming up with new ways without polluting the air is something that the Chinese Government needs to work on as soon as possible. And I’m sure that you agree with me on that. I miss you little sister, its a great opportunity for me to see all these wonderful things outside of America so I can teach you about some of the life changing things I have seen. Love, Diamond

22: Hello Mom, This is my second week here in China and I’m amazed, I am honestly impressed with the food. I didn't expect the food to be this delicious.

I know you love Lo Mein so I tried the famous Beef and Egg Noodles Lo Mein it tastes even better than the Chinese food at home. The Lee family that I am staying with has the recipe for the Lo Mein, I’m going to bring it home and give you a taste of real Chinese food. Yesterday, we took the bus into the city to do some cite seeing about the history in China. After the long tour, we went to Subway for a 5 dollar foot long. I couldn't believe that Subway was in China, it feels like I’m at home sometimes well at least when it comes to food. I miss you and the family; I hope Dads business is going well. Send me some pictures of you guys so that I can show the Lee family my beautiful family back at home. Love you guys, I hope all is well. -Diamond
