The child wants to study in the United States. He is told that the United States is not in law and order. Is it true?
My son wants to study abroad. He must also go to the United States. I also know that there are many good universities in the United States. But what our parents are most worried about is his safety. Looking at many of the campus cases and listening to others saying that there are many gun incidents, what is the truth? Is it safe to study in the United States?
What is "safety"? I spent nearly 30 years in China. I have turned several cities and never personally encountered gun violence because it is technically very difficult to happen in China. I spent nearly four years in the United States. I saw almost every month where the shootings were reported. It was not an exaggeration. McDonald's dropped the flag by three to five and the last one was within four miles. No one can whitewash the problem of violent crime in the United States. This is a basic fact of public life in this country. There is nothing to be debated. But I haven’t finished yet. I stayed in the United States for four years and have not been deceived. I want all kinds of people in China to cheat, all kinds of unworthy, all kinds of shoddy, all kinds of false air, all kinds of self-benefit, all kinds of opportunism, all kinds of blinding, all kinds of sheep, all kinds of counseling Five, anyway, as long as I get along with people, a lot of energy is spent on identifying others, not professional fraud, but everywhere, selling things, serving, acquaintances and strangers, including relatives and friends, in China, as long as you Think hard, you will find that sometimes parents are hard to trust and change the way to deceive you. No one thinks that "honesty" is a necessary virtue.
Hello to this parent, I am an American. My job has allowed me to reach many Chinese students and parents. Many parents feel the same as your concerns. I feel that the United States is insecure and I feel that this country is not strict with gun control. Some time ago in Florida. There was also a very tragic shooting incident in the school. Now the students are holding “March for lives” in Washington. But what I want to say is that the issue of “security” is a question of probability. We do not deny that there are indeed security risks in the United States, but the reason why Chinese parents have such an impression on the United States is because news media reports have given us such subconscious . All countries, including China, have insecure areas and examples of tragedies caused by their lack of awareness of protection. In most cities in the United States, the safety factor is indeed related to the region, and most schools are in a relatively safe and quiet area. In this answer.
