Changes at a Chinese university

Regarding the March 5 Focus article, “One Chinese university’s about-face”: This story shed some very interesting light on the transformation China has undergone under the rule of President Xi Jinping. What I felt intuitively has been articulated and confirmed.

Bringing historical context to current events

When I read the March 29 Monitor Daily article “The perennial presidential urge to bring FBI ‘under control,’ ” the historical presentation in the piece put the situation in clearer focus for me and, I believe, will do so for others. I appreciated the review. 

You should continue to give facts that will explain the present process as opposed to or evolved from historical processes.

Bringing families back together

The April 9 “People Making a Difference” article about Kevin Adler was a beautiful story. Very touching. It is nice to hear a story about the homeless that involves a new way to reconnect families.

Learning more about Hungary

I’ve just finished reading the April 5 Monitor Daily article about Hungary, “As Hungary votes, gathering shadows of a mythical past,” and I feel informed on the issues in the country and on the country’s proud history, neither of which I was aware of before today.

Thank you for your excellent article.
