2. Summary of Our Project
Pujiang build in AD 554, where is a holy land of Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism. Pujiang County has a long history, outstanding people and rich in resources. Local people live in the land of plenty.Our generation is very lucky and happy. But today in China, few people seem to notice that one group people sacrificed their precious life for our today's peaceful and happy life. Martyrs are no more with us, we have to read them by their graves, inscriptions and their remains. The meaning of life is to pay and give. The heightened sense of life is about to have done all you could for the people, even lives. Li Jiayu, Li Lei, and some people who we know or not, their heroic deeds shock us. The martyrs are immortal, heroic spirit lives forever!

E. Additional comments concerning your computer and/or Internet access (Optional):
School sets up a broadband LAN. In ordinary times, we had little chance to use computer because computer classroom is occupied by lessons. Students who took part in webpage-making competition are boarding students, we only went online in computer classroom at noon, and others from relatively well-off families went back home on weekend to use computer.
4. Problems We Had To Overcome
First: the time is limited. The students get up at 7:00 every day, and get out of class at 9:00 in the evening, teacher Liu not only teaches Chinese to the two classes students from Grade 7, but also does a master, so the students only take a little time to do the work at noon, or go home to do a bit at the weekend, to accumulate up athe work little by little. Second: Chengdu battle memorial and martyr cemetery are less than 2 kilometers from our school to where we go ordinarily with little buddy, never did understand. When teacher Liu asked us “Have you visited the Chengdu battle memorial?”“Have you been the martyr cemetery?”We rushed to reply:“Yes, we have, we have been there when we were in grade 4. Li Lei’s grave is in cemetery.” “Can you say something about Chendu Battle?”Teacher Liu continued. We all looked, and said nothing. Teacher Liu planed to take us to visit Chengdu Battle memorial on weekend. Unfortunately, it rains every weekend in recent week. The mid-term exam is coming; we only have a bit of materials checked on internet. We are afraid that we can’t make webpage without first-hand information. The skies finally cleared, we made a trip.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
