Description

MBS writes to her parents to give an update on two recent student demonstrations, which passed without bloodshed. She reports about daily life during the student strike, and how the students and administration are handling it. She also meditates on the "tremendous psychological barrier between the East and the West" and how futile productive contribution and genuine connection can seem.
