220. People Should Live with Dignity


1 I am a traditional Chinese intellectual who has been through many hardships in life. I hope China will become strong, affluent, peaceful, and unified. I pray that the Chinese people can live in a country that is free, democratic, prosperous, bountiful, fear-free, and dignified in the international community.

1 我是一個歷經憂患的中國傳統知識分子。我希望中國富強、和平、統一。我更祈禱中國人能生活在自由、民主、繁榮、無虞匱乏、無須恐懼的自由國家,具有尊嚴,屹立在國際社會中。
