When the Red Guards broke in Ji-li's house they got her papers from her collection for the inspection I got confused. It used to be the most efficient way of communication in the 60's, so I don't understand why was it considered something for inspection.
I chose this image because it represents one collection of paper used for letters, kind of like the one Ji-li has but more modern.
2. If Ji-li's family knew that the objects and clothes they had were Four Olds why did they not turn these things in before if they knew their house could be inspected?
In the book Ji-li's family started painting old boxes and cutting and sewing old clothes because they were considered Four Olds. But when Ji-li asked if they couldn't turn these things in they said they couldn't because it was too late. So I don't understand why they couldn't turn these things in before so they wouldn't need to destroy them.
I chose this image because it represents one of the clothes that Ji-li's mom and grandmother had to cut and sew again because it was a Four Old.
