Response to "Losing Home"
Dear Wen Ou,
What I noticed most about, "Losing Home" "http:www.wnyc.org/radiorookies/Elmhurst/wen.htm/," was the way you express yourself about China. You seem to have a sad perspective about what China is to you. I think you really miss your country.
When the podcaster said, "Home is a lot of people and talking." I was thinking my home is actually like that and that I believe family should be like this. I think this is true because home is a place for a family to talk and spend time together.
Another part that I liked was: "In my family, we don't talk about our feelings." This stood out for me because I have a similar situation. I don't talk to my family about my feelings.
I do agree with what she said towards the end about talking a and crying will not return what you lost. One reason I say this is because I have lost some one that I didn't spend that much time with. Another reason I agree with you is because nothing can return what you lost. Once it's gone, you can't get it back.
Thank you for your podcast. You did a good work and I like your story. I was able to relate to your story.
