Angel Island

Have you been Angel Island? It’s a beautiful place for hiking in summer, but a hundred years ago when Chinese immigrant came to this country. They were detain on this island. They needed to go thought the quarantine procedure. Everybody had to stay on the island for months, even years. If they could not pass the test, they would be send back to China. Some of them could not stand the unknown future, they committed suicide. Some of them wrote poems on the walls of the cells to express their feelings. Similar to what we do blogging nowadays. Just like movie star Meryl Streep said, “ I feel much better after blogging”.
