Recommended read: Reflections on 228

People in Taiwan had Friday off as a national holiday, not one of celebration but of national memorial.  

Whether the 228 Massacre and the remembering of it weighs heavy in your heart each year, or if this is the first you’ve heard of it, the short article at Taiwaneseamerican.org  is worth your time.  

Sixty seven years ago, Taiwanese rose up and spoke their minds, a freedom the occupation government didn’t guarantee at the time and violently denied them for forty more years.  We will never know how many thousands died after the movement was crushed, but Taiwanese society still bears the scars of empty places and half-healed wounds.  

Remember, and go on to fight for what you believe in.
