Despite being born and raised in the States, I’ve always had a very strong attachment to Hong Kong. From the few times I visited it, I’ve always felt at home. Thus seeing the current turmoil in the streets is heart-wrenching. However, it’s encouraging that things have rarely escalated to bouts of extreme violence. I have no idea how everything will turn out, but I hope whatever happens will be for the good of the people of Hong Kong. 香港加油!
