Yo-Yo Ma’s Remarks
Following his unbelievable performance during Joe Biden’s campaign, world famous cellist Yo-Yo Ma urged all Asian Americans and all people to support Biden in his bid to become the next president of the United States.
The great musician said, “I’ve lived my life at the borders. Between cultures. Between disciplines. Between music. Between generations. And throughout my life I’ve learned that on culture, we build bridges and not walls. We believe that we are better together than alone. I am worried that we’ve lost sight of that belief in America.”
As Joe Biden also said, “We are in the battle for the soul of the nation. It’s a battle to uphold and honor the values we hold dear. Values like empathy and dignity and respect for truth.”
We are so proud of Yo-Yo Ma who as a Chinese American, an Asian American, as well as all Americans, is a person who really loves this great nation. His words have really touched everybody’s heart.
Today our country is facing serious challenges. We need a leader who can lead us and not divide us in the future.
We urge everyone to take action and go out and vote in this critical election. This is your right as well as your duty as a citizen.
