Around the end of 2019, a virus appeared in the middle of China. It spread so quickly that just a few weeks later, it has affected the whole country. During the outbreak, medical workers and medical supplies have become especially important in fighting the virus.
After learning how hard medical workers are working on the frontlines of the epidemic, and how much danger their lives are in, I hope to express my deep gratitude to them. I think I might want to become a professional medical worker when I grow up. They have taught me to devote myself to society. I hope I can help others like they do in the future.

Do you like playing jokes on people? You can do so on April Fools’ Day in some Western countries. It falls on April 1 every year. However, there are some rules for April Fools’ jokes. Saying that someone is dead is not funny. The jokes should also be funny for both people. They should not hurt people’s feelings.
No one knows exactly how April Fools’ Day started. One of the stories goes like this: In the Middle Ages, some French people celebrated the New Year on April 1. Other French people celebrated it on Jan 1. They made fun of people who celebrated the former. They called them “April fools” and played tricks on them.
