Because I’m on this side of the world, I feel that it’s only appropriate to at least make an acknowledgment of the 20th anniversary of Tiananmen Square. It shocks me that college students in China now have no idea what happened 20 years ago due to censorship.
I’ve never really followed Taiwanese politics while in the States. I never knew who the president was, what the parties meant, and what the economy was like. Now as a witness to public protests and even my boyfriend’s mother is a strong green advocate, I can’t help but try to understand it all. I’m starting to have my own opinions and understanding how difficult it can be for Taiwan and its leaders to make the right decisions in the country’s best interest based on its current circumstances.
Although, I’ve always rooted for the underdog.
