You came,

 

 

 

 

m05_19944065.jpg  

 

 

You ravaged,

And you left.

 

 

 

 

m24_19953247.jpg 

 

 

 

Taking with you, without mercy,

Homes filled with history,

And countless innocent lives.

Missing.  Burried alive.

Over 500 lost souls...

Millions of unrealized dreams.

one cry of brutal agony

one pair of hands reaching out in despair

one restless night of fear at refuge camp

one last man standing alone

one daughter still waiting for her missing father

 

 

 

m10_19945351.jpg 

 

one violent crash against raging waters

 

 

 

m18_19953937.jpg 

 

one sudden collapse breaking all hope

one paradise-like village disappearing

- in the blink of an eye

...... one garbage bag filled with "whatever left in our lives"

 

 

 

- These are one too many.

 

 

 

***

 

 

 

We, Taiwan, will not rest.  

And will not be defeated.

Brave hearts

 

 

 

 

m30_19944649.jpg 

 

 

Filled with hope.

 

 

 

 

m17_19952065.jpg  

 

 

Love.

 

 

 

 

 

3622777286key.jpg 

 

Courage.

 

 

 

m07_19953343.jpg  

 

 

Compassion.

 

 

 

 

m16_19944055.jpg

 

 

And unity.

Are what our family is about.

 

 

 

 

m22_19944647.jpg 

 

 

 

- And all that we need.

 

 

 

To restart. 

To rebuild.   

One even stronger,

More beautiful home.
