Flag, Song and Country October 3, 2006

A couple of days ago, there was a news saying that guys from China tore down our Flag from our athletes at an International Children’s Games in Bangkok.  (http://english.www.gov.tw/TaiwanHeadlines/index.jsp?categid=8&recordid=98708)

Lately we are going to sing some songs at a reception for hundreds oversea Chinese backing Taiwan. One of the songs is composed by professor 蕭泰然, named “台灣翠青.” Its lyrics are simple, saying that the beautiful isle, Taiwan, used to be ruled by foreigners, now a democratic country that owned by Taiwan people.  

I’m never a fanatic patriot and never showed up in any of the political parades either. Maybe it’s because I have no reason to show my passion about this land in such a fierce way. However, I’m deeply moved by the Flag event, and the Song. One is defending our country, the other is re-recognizing ourselves.

There is another concert held on Oct. 9, we’ll sing this song at 8:30 – 9:30. We are told that this concert is going to be broadcast to TV channels. Wish I look great on TV. 🙂
