For almost three months,
our hometown, Hong Kong,
has become unfamiliar to me.
People have been torn apart by differences and violence.
All of this has saddened me,
but I still love this place.
I was born and grew up here,
so I will not let it be like this.
I’m willing to clean graffiti and move barricades.
I’m willing to persuade my family and friends to study or work.
I’m willing to support the voice of reason.
to do whatever an ordinary citizen can do
to oppose violence and restore order.
I believe that
most people yearn for a growing economy, lucrative job,
light traffic and peaceful society.
Whatever demands you have,
you should not resort to illegal or destructive acts,
letting all Hong Kong people pay for your actions.
We recognize that
we all love Hong Kong.
If you don’t want to lose Hong Kong,
whether you live in Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, or the New Territories,
whether you are a student, teacher, doctor or businessman,
please take action
with everybody around you.
Please protect and safeguard Hong Kong.
I’m willing to prove my love for her with my actions.
My home, Hong Kong!
My love. My home.
True love for Hong Kong depends on each and every one of us.
