The Taiwanese presidential election is tomorrow, and my parents and their friends are rallying for the DPP. I am no expert in politics in Taiwan, but it seems like a mess. Our close family friend, Judy Lin Linton, has written something about the KMT on her website. It's in Mandarin, but at the bottom of the page is an English translation.
I have blurry memories of first meeting Judy when she fled to the States. My mom told me the details of her family tragedy, but I have a hard time imagining the forgiveness she must have in her heart that enables her not to hate the organization that jailed her father and murdered her sisters and grandmother.
