Respecting Our Parents
Nowadays, there exists an increasingly severe phenomenon that teenagers don’t show respect to their parents. As we can read in newspaper or watch in TV, some teenagers quarrel with parents, some talk back and some even resort to violence. As to this problem, I’d like to advance several proposals as follows.
Initially, we should realize that it’s our parents who give us lives. Without parents, we can not live in this world. Therefore, the importance of respecting our parents can not be overemphasized. What’s more, it goes without saying that we have to remember the birth day of our parents, when we can express our gratitude to them. None the less, respecting our parents should be done from every detail. Just as a proverb goes, “piety is above all.” (百善孝为先)
To sum up, respecting parents is our traditional virtue in China. No matter how old we are, it’s a priority to respect our parents.
Knowledge is Power (观点阐释型 )
There goes a famous proverb, “knowledge is power.” We can be informed a great deal from it. Without knowledge, by no means can we achieve our life goal. Knowledge is like the wind in the ocean, which helps us- the boats move swifter towards the right direction.
As is frequently heard, “knowledge can change one's fate.” My brother-in-law is an exact explanation for this sentence. He was born in a remote countryside in Sichuan, whose parents are both farmers. Via his great efforts, he was enrolled in Peking University and became an excellent doctor in a prestigious hospital after graduation. Whenever taking about his experience, he always tells us “knowledge did change his fate.”
Taking the above mentioned into consideration,I suppose it is a wise option to concentrate on study from now on. Believing the power of knowledge, we can create miracles not only for us but for our nation.
