This is the first time reading about Taiji and it certainly seems like an amazing way to help you teach your mind and body to become one. I have a friend who has practiced Tha Chi for many years and seems very in tune with nature and himself.

There is another possible answer to your question China experienced a major civil war between December 1850 and August 1864. It is known as the Taiping Rebellion or Taiping Uprising. Two major slogans of this Uprising were “Resist Foreign Powers” and “Rid Internal Traitors.” So its targets were the foreign exploiting powers who were squeezing more and more unequal treaties from China, and the Qing government who wasn’t doing much or capable of doing much to resist the foreign exploitation. It was a major civil war during which more than 20 million people were killed, including a lot of foreigners. I don’t know how much the uprising/rebellion affected Hong Kong, but it was very serious and widespread in Southern and Southwestern China.

Perhaps there are some readers who can shed some light on this issue.

Excuse my very late reply!
The names of the deceased children and adults in Stanley Military cemetery were all British.
Still a mystery why so many died in that year 1864.

Comment on U.S.-China Relationship Can Use Another Anson Burlingame* by Dominic Li http://www.dontow.com/2016/12/u-s-china-relationship-can-use-another-anson-burlingame/comment-page-1/#comment-831737 Fri, 23 Dec 2016 08:58:48 +0000 http://www.dontow.com/?p=4444#comment-831737 I totally agreed that a war with China is more than mutual destruction to the detriment of both countries. I was not keen about Obama policy in Asia in particularly how he chose to deal with China. In spite of all the sabre rattling and posturing in South China Sea, I still do not think China has any intent to invade or bully other ASEAN nations. This is my second year living in China and my perception of ordinary Chinese citizens is that they are more concern with the prospect of peaceful daily life and earn a living. In spite of some Sino-phobic attitude of certain Americans, China is a communist country by name only and the economic pursuit is no different than any western developed countries. China, like any developing country, would need to upgrade their military to defend herself. This upgrade is unfortunately perceived by Pentagon as aggressive behavior. Unless China acts differently, my opinion is same as yours – a long term peaceful cooperation between 2 countries and both would benefit from better trade, growth and mutual respect.

Comment on Reminiscence from My 55th High School Class Reunion by David Rogers http://www.dontow.com/2016/09/reminiscence-from-my-55th-high-school-class-reunion/comment-page-1/#comment-813502 Thu, 06 Oct 2016 03:52:00 +0000 http://www.dontow.com/?p=4367#comment-813502 Don:

Sorry to have missed the 55th reunion, but as I had conveyed earlier, JoAnne and I were in France, Luxembourg and Belgium at the time. There were three objective of our travels, 1.) to visit the battlefields and memorials of where my uncle fought with the American Expeditionary Forces in WWI, 2.) connect with my ancestors on my mother’s side of the family in a small village in Luxembourg, and 3.) have JoAnne, an experienced art and European history expert, guide this ignorant engineer through the treasures of northern France, Belgium and Luxembourg. All three objectives were accomplished and I now have “boots on the ground” confirmation for completing my second novel of my uncle’s military experience, have e-mail and personal contact with my Luxembourg relatives and have grown in appreciation of European history and art.

I appreciated your insights and reflection of “growing up” in America as a new immigrant. What you have conveyed is very well stated and incisively accurate. One of the more humorous memories of being on a survey crew with Harry Harper, USFS, was lunch time entertainment of busting up old, decayed stumps with an axe to see what creatures would emerge, only to have two or three field mice claw/crawl up my leg towards the nut sack! After dropping trousers and jumping around like a crazy man to the enjoyment of fellow surveyors, did the excitement end.

With respect to discrimination and bullying–I believe they are the same. I am not making any defense of this deplorable human behavior, but here is different trenchant perspective, disregarding political correctness. Human kind, ever since we were all “knuckle draggers” have been wary of any others outside of our tribe–going to the extreme of killing them. This barbaric trait is well documented throughout pre-historic and historic time. How does one go about changing a “genetic” trait that is as fundamental as our ability to speak, think, and relate to “strangers”? Legislation cannot solve this corundum, but Jesus did 2,000 plus years ago. Follow what Jesus said and taught and discrimination and hatred will die.

Comment on “Torn Memories of Nanking” – A Must Read by Prof. James C. Hsiung http://www.dontow.com/2016/06/torn-memories-of-nanking-a-must-read/comment-page-1/#comment-812585 Sat, 01 Oct 2016 22:00:49 +0000 http://www.dontow.com/?p=4257#comment-812585 As co-editor of the book China’s Bitter Victory: War with Japan, 1937-1945, I really think Tamaki Matsuoka’s book, Torn Memories of Nanking, should be a must-read, especially for the young Japanese. The reason is that against the background of the Japanese government’s consistent denial of the truth about the war, Ms. Matsuoka unearthed the evidence of what really happened when Japanese troops overran Nanking, then the national capital of China, and massacred 300,000 Chinese, including inoocent civilians, in December 1937. I might add that the size of the stunning 300,000 casualties was greater than the combined Japanese who were killed by the two atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Matsuoka speaks for the conscience of the Japanese nation and wins back the respect of many other Asians troubled by the Japanese government’s re-writing of history. Her courage and tenacity in finding out about the truth deserve the award of a Nobel prize.
