we are the one / 香港一定得
this is not wishful thinking, it is hope…this is not a dead end, but the way out…
born in the 1960s, i was growing up in an atmosphere of forever ‘taking off’ and going forward’.
indeed, this is a blessing. as the saying goes: ‘what goes up, must come down’.
there are, as the buddhists say, uncertainties along the path. so if the seven million people in hong kong
do their best to strive, struggle forward and join together as one face, there will be a better tomorrow.
this is the reason why, i have been promoting the positive spirit of hong kong
through the exhibition series ‘building hong kong redwhiteblue’ over the past three years.
the 2003 sars epidemic forged and strengthened the community spirit of the people in hong kong.
let us leave behind the idea of seven million individuals, and join hands to march forward as one.
today, under the fioral emblems of celebration, let us hope for the drawing of this heroic day.
