    Question A passage

    "Let's hope he'll do something to change the environment and the people there, though I don't really believe he will succeed even if he tries hard. The only thing we can do now is to keep our fingers crossed and watch the movie."

    Is this short passage fine?

    Thanks,
    Nyggus
