Thanks for your help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[Though Kaiyuan is not outstanding as a tourist city, its name spreads among travelers nationwide because of the rime. The rime on the Lujiang River is one of four natural wonders in China, enjoying equal fame as Guilin Mountains and Streams, Yunnan Stone Forest and the Three Gorges on the Yangtze River do. The rime, also called “snow willow”, “tree hanging”, “ice flowers”, “water vaporized flowers”, “silver flowers”, is a kind of phenomenon, in which winter fog condenses on the branches and leaves of trees to form separate, white ice crystals, according to metrology.]
Oh, dear! I have to face thouse stuff every day, and it’s so obscure, even native speakers can not correct them. Damn~~~~~~

Anyone want to edit my english paper?

Question by Steve B: Anyone want to edit my english paper?
I did a research paper on the Nanking Massacre. If you could correct any spelling or grammatical mistakes. Thanks!

Nanking Massacre
My research paper is about the Nanking Massacre. Sometimes refered to the Rape of Nanking. It occurred in the year of 1937. The duration of this massacre is still undetermined but the violence consisted of six weeks. There were over 300,000 people killed and over 20,000 women raped. It is a true devastation to the Chinese people
In this massacre the aggressor was the Imperial Japanese Army or just Japan and the Victim was the Chinese people of Nanking. The reason for this massacre was word domination. Japan wanted to control the world, Quite similar to Germany in WWII. All Japanese children raised in the 1900s were raised to hate China and the people that live there. It was a Japs duty to obey their emperor who was declared the son of heaven. Every citizen was raised to fight! Their first step of world domination was to take over China so that’s how the Naking Massacre got started.
People were not just simply killed in this Massacre, they were extremely tortured in sick, twisted ways! The Chinese were shot, gassed, raped, looted, burned, and the city was vandalized. Gasoline was poured on large groups of Chinese soldiers and set of fire. As well as people being set on fire so were buildings. Poison gas was used on anyone who appeared to be a Chinese soldier. Peopled were looted of everything! The loot included jewelry, coins, domesticated animals, food, clothes, antiques, and even inexpensive items such as cigarettes, eggs, fountain pens, and buttons.
The most disturbing things I’ve learned from this is the way they went about raping the women of Nanking. They raped girls of ages 10 and younger, women 70 and older. They even made sons rape their daughters and sons rape their mothers. If anyone resisted or refused they were killed immediately.
One particular even in this massacre were a lot of people were killed was the “Tragedy at Yangtze River”. On December 13, 1937 50,000 people died trying to escaped from the Japanese by crossing the Yangtze River.
You can imagine the survivors lives were deeply traumatized as any survivor would be after such a horrific experience. Seeing your own people being killed and tortured in sickening ways would take its toll on you. Some survivors managed to write books and other pieces of what they saw and experienced such as Li Xiuying, Mu Xifu, Xia Shuqin, and many others.
After this genocide the Japanese tried to deny it ever happen, but with such terrifying evidence that would not hold up. Japanese class A war criminals were tried in court for war crimes. Twenty five of them were found guilty, seven sentenced to the death penalty, sixteen to life in prison, and two to lesser terms.

The Nanking Massacre is sometimes refered to as “the rape of Naking.” It occured in 1937. The duration of this massacre has not yet been determined, but the violence consisted of six weeks. There were over 300,000 people killed and over 20,000 women raped. It was a true devistation to the people in China.

The massacre’s aggressor was was the Imperial Japanese army, or just Japan, and the victims were the people of Naking. The reason for the massacre was for world domination. Japan wanted to control the world-Quite like Germany did in World War II. All Japanese children raised in the 1900’s were taught to hate the Chinese. It was a Japanese person’s duty to obey the emperor, who was declared “the son of Heaven.” Every citizen was taught to fight! The first step in world domination was to take over China, and that is how the massacre started.

People were not just simply killed-They were tortured in sick, twisted ways! The Chinese were shot, gassed, raped, looted, burned, and their city was also vandalized. Gasoline was poured on large groups of solders, and they were then set on fire. Buildings were also set on fire. Poison gas was used when someone was suspected of being Chinese. People were also looted! Things that were looted included jewelry, coins, domestic animals, food, clothes, antiques, and even inexpensive items such as cigarettes, eggs, fountain pens, and buttons.

The most disturbing thing I’ve learned from this is the way they went about raping the women. They raped girls from ages younger than 10, to ages older than 70. They even made sons rape their daughters and mothers. If anyone resisted or refused, they were instantly killed. One particular event where many people were killed was the “Tragedy at Yangtze River.” On December 13, 1937, 50,000 people died trying to escape from the Japanese crossing the Yangtze river.

One can imagine the survivors lives that would have been deeply traumatized as any survivor would be after such a horrific experience. Seeing one’s own people being killed and tortured in sickening ways would take it’s toll on one. Some survivors managed to write books and other things of what they saw and experienced. Some survivers were Li Xiuying, Mu Xifu, Xia Shuquin, and many others.

After the genocide happened, the Japanese tried to deny it ever happened, but with such terrifying evidence, that wouldn’t hold up. Japanese class A war criminals were tried in court for war crimes. 25 of them were found guilty, and 7 were sentenced to the death penalty. 16 were sent to life in prison, and 2 were sent to lesser terms.
