When the law becomes a tool for the regime to suppress dissidents, Hong Kong people will use different ways to express their opinions, hoping that our friends on the other side of the wall will know that we are still there.
Please forgive this stranger for calling you by your first name. We are not related, nor are we friends, but we have had the pleasure of meeting each other many times at rallies and street booths. Although we never got to really get to know each other, in fact, we never even exchanged names, we are nevertheless like minded people who share the same hope that Hong Kong will become a society that values the voices of its people more.
From the moment I learned your name and the names of other young people in Demosistō, I thought that you are a group of outstanding talents, a driving force for the betterment of Hong Kong, and a hope for the future of our city. Although Hong Kong has become a giant prison in the words of Leung Kwok-hung, and you and I just stand on the inside and outside of the walls, we still have to stand up for our beliefs. To this day, I can still see many people insisting on their beliefs outside the walls. I myself continue to read Apple Daily every day and try my best to make purchases according to my principles. I am also confident that you will hold on to your faith in the face of power and will not be demoralized by oppression. Nevertheless, I would like to remind you to take good care of your health. As a marathon enthusiast for more than 10 years, I deeply understand the importance of regular exercise for health. Regular stretching and jogging will not only strengthen cardiopulmonary function and prevent muscle atrophy, but will also boost your mood through the production of endorphins in your body.
Now, Hong Kong’s like-minded fellow travelers have participated in a mountain ultramarathon with a long and rugged trail. We don’t know how many hills are ahead and how much sweat we have to put in to reach the finish line. However, one thing is for sure, as long as we keep running, we will be able to complete this tough challenge!
Though the road is long
I am a middle-aged auntie with a son who is studying in Canada but cares a lot about Hong Kong society. Every time I participated in a rally on my own, I would give special attention to the kids around me, hoping to use my age to deter the dogs. Although I do not contribute much, I hope that you all will not give up. My son continues to show solidarity with Hong Kong from Canada, in the hope that we can do our best to help.
You have done nothing wrong. Equip yourself well during this period as there is still a long way to go ahead.
