August 14, 2019—For my friends outside Hong Kong: These are difficult times in the special administrative region.
Despite the violence you’ve seen on TV, life continues. We’re not cowering in fear (and clouds of tear gas) in our homes. We’re going to work, some of us are scuba diving, and today is the first day of the school year for many kids, including our youngest.
We face many challenges in the days and weeks ahead. But after nearly three decades in this wonderful city, I remain impressed by the strength, resilience and resourcefulness of Hongkongers.
We will get through this.
Please keep us in your thoughts.
