A New Year Wish…

Time flies and 2014 is now history…  Though retired, my 2014 was really busy in travelling, working in church, taking care of our cats, and learning a lot of new stuffs…  I enjoyed very much.  However, we did have a lot of issues in many parts of the world.  In Hong Kong, we had the Umbrella Movement driving for true democracy last September. And today marks the 100th day since the day 87 tear bombs shot at unarmed people mostly students.

Marching 2015, I wish everybody happier and healthier;  the world could be more peaceful and colourful like the sunrise this morning…

Small but Strong… Umbrella Movement in Hong Kong

Small but strong
Small but Strong

This picture was taken on the flyover in Central district near the Government Office in Hong Kong…  As of today, the area has been occupied by people, mostly students in Hong Kong for 58 days.  In the first day of the occupation, our Hong Kong Police used 87 tear bombs to stop this happening.  The people had no preparation for this attack and the only things they had on hand were umbrellas.  They used umbrellas to protect themselves and stopped the police.  That’s why it’s known as the Umbrella Movement. The main goal is to ask for true democracy so that people in Hong Kong can have the right to vote for their leaders.

Somebody put this cactus on the flyover…   The paper yellow umbrella symbolizes the movement…  The thorn of the cactus and the pavement of flyover tell us that this movement is not easy and it will have a long long way to go…

However, I treasure this moment because I see hope in Hong Kong…  The students are our future and I support and respect their spirit to voice out their thoughts, their needs, their wills for true democracy!

Go for it…  Never give up…  You are small but you are definitely STRONG!!!
