When you respect so much, and trust their judgement so completely, you’re willing to change your mind (life) because of them.

Henry Moore, High Wire Walkers, 1975

Like many people who care about Hong Kong’s political future, I have been able to focus on very little else over the past few days. At times, I have been worried—worried about the safety of the protestors; worried that their efforts will fail to bring change; worried about the future of the city that I love. But I have also been deeply moved and inspired. I have never been so proud of Hong Kong. It has never been so determined.For those of us who support democratic change, we realise that the time has come, that we have to fight now, before it’s too, too late. We are uncertain of what the outcome might be, but we are nevertheless united, hearts with one purpose, and we are fighting.Will we succeed? We already have. Hong Kong will never be the same again. A valiant beauty has been born.

Under the rule of a repressive whole, liberty can be made into a powerful instrument of domination.
