The USA is the place I was born. Canada is the place I was raised. Taiwan is the place in my heart.

2-28 ( February 28, 1947 )

On this day let us remember the estimated 18,000 to 28,000 individuals, a generation of intellectuals who were murdered in Taiwan by an illegitimate, corrupt, oppressive ruler- the Nationalist Chinese party; the Kuo Ming Tang, who had fled to Taiwan- from China and the wrath of the Chinese Communists.

Let us remember the survivors, the orphaned, the widowed who continue to heal.

2-28 has come to represent a day on which the people of Taiwan claimed their Taiwanese identity, fought for justice and began their struggle towards becoming a nation.
