|Seen on the Hong Kong Baptist University campus|
My students have told me they're boycotting classes indefinitely. I am proud of them. How can one not be moved?
Hong Kong students continue to put 'civil' in 'civil disobedience'.
100,000 people on the street in Hong Kong (a reporter told me it was that many) singing, applauding, chanting. There is a feeling of great hope.
I hope that all of the students participating in the protests will stay safe and remain optimistic for a better future of this place we call home.
I have run out of umbrellas to lend to my students,
braving all weathers, all scorn, for a future they no longer have any option
but to believe in.
Now it is my heart I would shelter them with.
I do so happily, without reservation.
They were the first, and will be the last,
to welcome me here.
They have always stood by me.
