2008: It is the most unforgettable year for our Chinese, since we underwent so many things. Looking back on that year, I found it eventful.
At the beginning of that year, we suffered a lot from the ice and snow disaster. Everything was so expensive at that time. To make things worse, all the traffic lines were frozen; so many workers and students were detained at the railway station. They had a terrible job to go home.
In March, a horrible violence happened in Tibet, which caused so many deaths and injuries, and caused bad social influence. It seemed that our world was no longer a safe place to live in.
On May 12th, the most terrible earthquake which happened in Wenchuan deprived of tens of thousands of lives. We were dreadful at that time. Some of my schoolmates collected money for disaster area. Some of my schoolmates prayed good luck for them with candles. I also joined in them. We eagerly wished that the dead people would go well on their way to haven and people alive could be strong.
In August, the 【英语翻译学习网（enfanyi.com）你的英语学习好帮手】Olympic Games were hold in our country that was a totally success, bring great reputation to our nation. We were so excited to welcome athletes all over the world. It was a great chance for the world to know us better.
At the end of the year, there came a financial crisis. Many companies went bankrupt. Therefore, so many workers lost their jobs.
What a poignant year we had spent in 2008, but we were not defeated, because China was getting more and more flourishing. We have the confidence and ability to overcome all difficulties.
