National Identity: We Are Taiwanese, Not Chinese

A dozen years ago, I ran into a group of Asian tourists in Switzerland. When they saw me on the street, they warmly greeted me in Mandarin Chinese, a delightful surprise in a foreign land. The sudden connection with people from my own country who spoke my language was truly a rare and exciting moment. […]

A recurring question emerges from these interactions, “Where are you from?” The Vietnamese guests are curious to know whether I share their heritage. Hispanics, recognizing that I am Asian, wonder whether my […]

“Do you think China will go to war to take Taiwan?”

My church choir director asked me recently, “Do you think China will go to war to take Taiwan?” I guess that many Americans, like my choir director, are curious to know what Chinese nationals think about the current hostile situation created by the increasingly aggressive Chinese Communist regime.

Tear Down the Great Firewall of China

Every year, as June 4 approaches, I write articles to commemorate the 1989 pro-democracy student movement in China.  The Tiananmen Massacre occurred on June 4th, 34 years ago.

My Heavenly Father Saved My Parents from COVID in China

(A Christian’s Testimony) Isaiah 1:17 says, “Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed.” In 2014, my Christian faith began to grow after I found and joined a home church. With God’s calling, I started contacting ChinaAid ― an international non-profit Christian human rights organization committed to promoting religious freedom and the rule of […]

Let Freedom Ring in China: From 1989 Tiananmen to 2022 Blank White Paper

From spring to winter, for more than 70 years, we, the people of China, have lived and are still living under a Communist regime. No freedom of speech. No freedom of religion. No freedom of assembly.

Lifting One Billion Chinese Out of Poverty: The Big Lie Forward of the Communist Party

During the first decade of the regime, Mao launched several political movements to take away people’s properties such as […]

Nipping It in the Bud: How Peaceful Demonstrations Vanished after 1989 in China

The Chinese Tank Man has become an international icon for the courage to pursue a democratic society. Not until I landed in the U.S. did I know and see his image, one of the most iconic photographs of the 20th century. I was stunned watching the unidentified man stopping the advance of a convoy of […]
