Letters to prison: Fearless souls in dire straits

2021.05.08

Today we are caught in the struggle between calmness and anxiety. The regime is spreading white terror and is exploiting the criminal law to throw fellow protesters into jail. Nevertheless, as long as we live up to our conscience and our conscience is clear, we shall have peace of mind and become righteous and fearless.

When Wu Chi-wai’s plea to attend his father’s funeral was denied, readers of Apple Daily wrote in to express support for him, pointing out that his father would be proud of him. Some readers miss fellow protesters much as if they were blood related and often pray for them. Overseas readers have sent lengthy hand written letters which express strong faith in the future: opportunities exist for us to pursue our goals with more effective strategies; as long as we stay united without rift, we will amass the courage and become invincible.

Your father will definitely be proud of you

Dear Mr Wu Chi-wai,

At Legislative Council meetings, you always contended with reason.

In the days of boundless brutal suppression, you confronted heavily-armed police firing tear gas bombs at protesters, bellowing “I want to see your commander!”

Hong Kong people will not forget these episodes.

You are righteous. You are dauntless.

You are a real man of indomitable spirits.

Please take care!

From a Hongkonger who misses you

---------------------------------

May God bless you!

My beloved sons and daughters,

It’s heart breaking to be separated from you while you serve your sentence.

There are many setbacks in life, but your righteous and kind heart will remain intact.

When you feel lonely, please pray to God, the Creator.

The peace of God will guard your heart. May the Lord also guard your body and health!

I will always remember you in my prayers. May the Lord look upon you with favor and keep you company on your journey!

Thank you for your sacrifice. Hang in there.

Be united and be invincible

Dear brothers and sisters,

I heard a KOL talking about “strife” today.

He said that some so-called factions and social movements are actually meant to tear people apart. The regime often makes use of people’s unsettling sentiments and preconceptions to influence their attitudes and preferences towards events. Do you understand?

To fight for Hong Kong’s freedom, we shall stand by each other. We shall be united. We shall not let the rift within the pro-democracy camp deepen. We shall be invincible. We shall neither be servile nor arrogant.

The Dawn will come.

Adona
