I enjoyed the four-part series on China in the Monitor. My wife is from China, and after reading the articles she found out more about her own country because of the freedom of the press we enjoy here in America. The series also helped me understand more of where my wife is from, what it was like for her growing up, and how I take a lot of what America has to offer for granted. It also helped me understand more about the Chinese society, past and present. Mark Hummer, Toledo, Ohio
