2 If we want to write clearly, we must learn how to punctuate correctly. In fact, every mark of punctuation carries some meaning and gives hints to the readers. An incorrect punctuation mark can often change the meaning of a sentence and cause misunderstanding. Some students tend to use the full stop everywhere in their writing. For example, "The mother loved her children very much. She worked hard. And she saved money for them. But they don't quite understand. The mother is very sad. And that is too bad.? This really sounds terrible. A good writer is always careful about the punctuation. We can be good, too. Now let's start! General Writing Punctuation : Unit 8 Love and Friendship / Write and Produce.

11 From the first day that I entered college, I knew exactly which career I was destined for -- the practice of medicine. I wanted to become a doctor, mostly because of my unique family background. Growing up in a family with eight brothers and sisters, it seemed that someone always needed my help, either physically, or emotionally. As a big brother to so many younger brothers and sisters. I learned that helping others in need is more than simply a career choice; I feel that it is my moral responsibility.

The hearty smiles from those I have helped always encourage me to devote my time and energy for others happiness.
