Last Year in Hong Kong

Last year at this time I was getting ready to fly to Hong Kong to see for myself what was going on with the protests.

It seems like a lifetime ago now.

The concerns then felt so specific and clear.

When we arrived we tried to go see friends in the north part of Hong Kong and realized quickly that we wouldn't be able to get there. There was no MTR running, no taxis to take us.

And yet...

In the midst of the struggles there was so much joy.

(A big sigh.)

Every day we think of our friends there and miss them so much.

When will we be able to go back?
