Lee Siu Hin: Sad News from My Family--Passing of My Sister-In-Law
Journey to My Home--China 2012
Good morning from Hong Kong , China ..middle of my critical China-US bi-national solidarity working trip.
In a very note again, my sister-in-law passed away from her longer suffer cancer yesterday morning. I was in the critical stage of the peace and justice work in Beijing when my family told me she's into the coma last week, I need cut short my stay in Beijing and quickly flying back to Hong Kong yesterday--I arrived to the home late afternoon, I missed half day without able to see her one last time.
This is the second losses in my family for the past two weeks--first, my father, then my sister-in-law, I didn't had chance to see them last time because I was working at the critical peace and justice works.
I was talking to my friend last night, you need to pay huge personal price and painful sacrifice to achieve a meaningful goal, my mom is now reminding me that I'll be regard rest of my life--with the US/NATO/Arab oil kings' war drum against Syria are getting very close, the Chinese pro-US/right-wing forces are rising and undermining against our country just like Tea Party in the US. The injustice in the US are getting worse. I want to take a rest, but I can't.
While it's sad for my father and sister-in-law's death, but injustice never sleeps, I cannot stop my work--the war and injustice continue around the World, the steady rise of China's pro-US right-wingers are influencing our country, US war on Iraq, Afghanistan; the US-NATO-Middle East-Arab Union invasion and destruction against Lybia; the war drum against Iran, Syria, North Korea;, and CIA/NED political/covert actions undermine against many other countries in South America, middle east and the Africa...NOT UNTIL wars in Africa, south America, Asia, Iraq, Palestine & Korea with sweatshops in Asia as well as in Los Angeles, New York; international arm sales and WTO, FTAA, NAFTA & CAFTA with AIDS, hunger, child labors and child solider; multinational corporations and economic exploitation with racism, PARTRIOTIC Act, NDAA and poverty, the greedy 1% at home CAN BE STOP--we win the struggle, I can finally rest.
And it could be the best commemoration for my father, sister-in-law, grandparents and many other friends, comerades now in heaven.
