ladies and gentlemen，boys and girls，
i am chinese. i am proud of being a chinese with five thousand years of civilization behind. i‘ve learned about the four great inventions made by our forefathers. i‘ve learned about the great wall and the yangtze river. i‘ve learned about zhang heng and i‘ve learned about zheng says the yellow river civilization has vanished?i know that my ancestors have made miracles on this fertile land and we‘re still making miracles. who can ignore the fact that we have established ourselves as a great state in the world，that we have devised our own nuclear weapons，that we have successfully sent our satellites into space，and that our gnp ranks no. 7 in the world? we have experienced the plunders by other nations，and we have experienced the war. yet，based on such ruins，there still stands our nation----china，unyielding and unconquerable!
i once came across an american tourist. she said，―china has a history of five thousand years，but the us only has a history of 200 years. five thousand years ago，china took the lead in the world，and now it is the us that is leading.‖ my heart was deeply touched by these words. it is true that we‘re still a developing nation，but it doesn‘t mean that we can despise ourselves. we have such a long-standing history，we have such abundant resources，we have such intelligent and diligent people，and we have enough to be proud of. we have reasons to say proudly：we are sure to take the lead in the world in the future again，for our problems are big，but our ambition is even bigger，our challenges are great，but our will is even greater.
i am chinese. i have inherited black hair and black eyes. i have inherited the virtues of my ancestors. i have also taken over responsibility. i am sure，that wherever i go，whatever i do，i shall never forget that i am chinese!
i am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.
five score years ago，a great american，in whose symbolic shadow we stand today，signed the emancipation proclamation. this momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. it came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity.
but one hundred years later，the negro still is not free. one hundred years later，the life of the negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. one hundred years later，the negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. one hundred years later，the negro is still languished in the corners of american society and finds himself an exile in his own land. and so weve come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.
in a sense weve come to our nations capital to cash a check. when the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the constitution and the declaration of independence，they were signing a promissory note to which every american was to fall heir. this note was a promise that all men，yes，black men as well as white men，would be guaranteed the "unalienable rights" of "life，liberty and the pursuit of happiness." it is obvious today that america has defaulted on this promissory note，insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. instead of honoring this sacred obligation，america has given the negro people a bad check，a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds."
good morning，its my honor to stand here and give you this speech about dreams. there i want to start my speech with two short stories.
the first story happened when i was in primary school，i wrote in my composition that my dream was to be a teacher when i grew up. meanwhile，what my classmates wrote about their dreams was that he or she wanted to be a doctor，a scientist or an astronaut.
the second story happened at my first year in university. at the careers planning class，when the teacher asked about our dreams，one of my classmates stood up and said，“i want to be a farmer，because i grow up in a farmers family and i love to be engaged in agriculture.” when he sat down，everyone clapped.
these two stories happened during my growth process，from which i got my understanding of dreams. when i was a child i believed that a dream must be a big dream，but when i grow up i find this big dream is so far away from me，i know little about it，and i have done nothing to achieve it，so its not my dream. my classmates answer let me know a real dream is not just about being a great man，or doing a great job，its about what you really want to be，and are willing to try every effort to pursue it.
because what makes a dream valuable is not just about the result，its also about the process，the process when you are trying，when you are struggling，when you failed and restarted again and again，because of the process，dreams can be meaningful and become your wealth.
good morning teachers and fellow students. today we would like to introduce a few favorite books to you.
my favorite book is (italian：cuore). this is a diary written by an italian boy enrico. the diary is about his life and study. it included various touching stories that happened around enrico，the mottos taught by his parents，as well as the wonderful ten "monthly" stories told by his teacher during the class. every word in the chapter describes the word "love". from patriotism to friendship，and to the love between parents and child -- really touching.
