Hong Kong is NOT just another Chinese city!

A message sent out this past July 1st

May dreams expressed on July 1, 2013 continue 
to be cherished today, tomorrow and a long time to come

Things that show Hong Kong's distinct character... and long may Hong Kongers stay this way!

I'm with you 100% on this one, YTSL! The very fact that a demonstration of this size occurred and the caring way in which it has been conducted is proof that HK is not just another Chinese city. Even though I can't justifiably say that I'm a Hongkonger, I feel super proud about what is happening and share the excitement and anxiety.

Hi duriandave --

Thank you and exactly -- that "The very fact that a demonstration of this size occurred and the caring way in which it has been conducted is proof that HK is not just another Chinese city"!

Honestly, the caring and civility of the protestors has been so lovely and amazing it nearly moved me to tears this afternoon. Instead, I got inspired to run into a grocery store and contribute supplies! ;b
