Love Media, Love Life!

When the first time I saw thousands of people singing the song “one day”, dreaming of the peaceful world when every child can play under the blue sky together, I was moved by the power of the media.

Without media, I might not appreciate beautiful melodies from a hundred miles away.

Without media, there would be no such a chance for me to see as others see and to feel as others feel.

Without media, I can only express my emotions through letters and hope to meet my families every time when I get homesick.

The world we live now is profoundly mediated by the connection of every individual and things of various types of media. From the creation of the radios and televisions to smartphones, and from politics, arts as well as economics, to our collective memories, the invisible social network has gradually gathered information and structured our society.

In other words, we live in media and media also lives among us. It taught me how to act and taught me how to love.

I love my life. And I love the life with media.
