------ 給國際移民社區的信

各位兄弟姐妹們:

近兩個月來的新冠疫情似海嘯般襲擊了美洲大陸,致使我們大家改變了生活步調及方式,生活在這片土地的人身心受到重創。

自從政府宣布半封閉措施以來,社區中的各行各業,除了藥房、超市、醫療設備及一些政府機構之外,大都停業,尤其是我們國際移民社區仰賴為生的餐廳、美容髪廊、及小型商場,因停業無法繳租,泰半市民要求留守家中,往常街頭上的榮景不在,心頭上之徬徨不安,感受到這個強大的國家,何以一夕之間,淪此下場。

所幸聯邦政府週五由川普總統再度簽署近五千億元之援助中小企業之紓困資金, 希望全力擺脫我們所面臨之困境,許多受災不重的州也逐漸開放,五月一日將是一個關鍵時刻,盼望疫情可控,讓我們能逐漸重返生活軌道。

今晨看到馬立秦教授發來的一張泛黃的舊照,當年我們充滿激情來到這塊美麗充滿希望活力的土地,為了追求更高之理想,數十載過去了,照片中的同窗好友都已成爲社會中堅,在各領域卓有所成,我們的青春都奉獻在這塊土地上。

值此丕變,希望大家更要堅定信心,同舟共濟,相互扶持,我們一定能戰勝這場無聲的戰爭。

美國挺住,天佑世界,請大家珍重!

A Letter To Our Community


Dear Brothers and Sisters --


In the last two months, the Coronavirus has attacked our community and almost totally destroyed our lifestyles. Many of us in the community are small business owners such as restaurants, beauty salons and small shopping centers. And now, because the government wanted us to shut down for an extended time, most of us cannot even pay the rent and survive this sudden change that has turned into such a terrible economic difficulty. Why, in the richest country in the world has this turned into such a total disaster?


Yesterday, the president signed another $484 billion economic stimulus bill to try and help all the small businesses and medical facilities. More than twenty states already announced they would partially open for business. We all hope that on May 1 of next month the pandemic can be controlled and the economy will slowly recover.


Today, I looked at an old college classmate’s photo from our dear friend, Professor L. C. Ma.  All of us as young graduate students came to America to look for a better life. Many years later, most of us have become very successful professionals and we have now spent most of our adult lives in this great nation.


Today, as we are facing the most difficult time fighting this invisible enemy, we are confident we can win and prevail.


May God bless our Nation. America keep strong!
