More broadly, it refers to the popular national movement inspired by the Beijing protests during that period, sometimes referred to as the ’89 Democracy Movement (八九民运). The protests were forcibly suppressed after the government declared martial law.  On that day, troops with assault rifles and tanks killed at least several hundred demonstrators trying to block the military’s advance towards Tiananmen Square. Estimates of the death toll range from several hundred to thousands of people. Set against a backdrop of rapid…

Father of AHHHS – The “D” Word

It is a well known fact that Chinese culture contains much superstition in their traditions and belief system. I am the product of resounding reminders of some of these superstitions. Growing up, my Father was very mindful of many these ancient rules of consequence. One of the subjects of major superstition and consequence has to do with death. Even as I wrote the last sentence, I could feel my Father turn in his grave and tell me to “STOP, you cannot write about that! It’s bad luck!” The Chinese people are very weary of the number 4, because in the Chinese…

Father of AHHHS – All Lives Matter (Part One)

As long as I can remember the subject of race has been a hot button topic of discussion. My first influence on the subject of race was when I watched the TV Mini Series Roots.  We did not have a TV in our home growing up, so I remember I went to watch this anticipated series at a friend’s house. From the first episode I was mortified yet hypnotically transfixed on the program. I remember sobbing convulsively as I watched the depiction of some of the worst acts of violence I had ever seen. My love, compassion and humanity were…
