          Father’s Gift Watch And Letter


New York Governor Cuomo wanted to give his daughter Michaela an old watch as a graduation gift. The watch was given to him by his father, the 52th governor of New York, Governor Mario Cuomo.


Cuomo said Michaela didn’t want any money, but she wanted some gift more meaningful. So he decided to let her have the watch that his father gave to him when he was elected New York state Attorney General.


Cuomo has been married to Kerry Kennedy for 15 years. They have three daughters, Cara, Mariah and Michaela. All of them were Ivy League graduates. Kerry Kennedy is the daughter of the late Robert Kennedy.


New York City will formally open up this coming Monday. Since the pandemic started, Governor Cuomo has been hosting a news conference almost daily. He gives very detailed reports to all the citizens of New York. He tries to solve the state’s problems with a very efficient team.  He is considered to be the best politician who is trying to accomplish a very difficult job.


I remember since I was a young kid, no matter that I had left my home and gone off to school, or later when I came to America, my dad always wrote me letters with a writing brush. When my life faced challenges and difficulties, I always looked at his letters. For the past so many years, his letters have become my spirit power to guide my life. Dad has sinced passed away for many years, but his letter still hang in my office.


Governor Cuomo’s gift to his daughter really represents his love and encouragement. This also sets an example for all families.

       父親的禮物 手表和家書

紐約州長柯孟今天表示,他將把其父、老州長馬裏奧柯孟十五年前他當選州檢察總長時給他的手錶,送給今年在哈佛畢業叁女米凱拉。

這位站在抗疫前缐深得州民愛戴的州長,有非常顯赫的家世,其妻是美國前司法部長甘迺迪之長女, 他和妻子十五年的婚姻,生下叁個女兒,都是長春滕名校畢業。

柯孟說,她女兒告訴他,今年畢業典禮她要父親不必送錢了,州長經過考慮,決定把這枚戴在手上已經十五年的老錶送給愛女,其意義也非常深遠。

我們非常歡迎紐約市及州即將在下週一局部開放,這座世界經濟政治中心,不但是美國的大門 ,也是世界之樞鈕,柯孟州長在過去叁個月之疫情期間每天都開記者會, 向州民報告當天實情, 他的表現可圈可點, 已成爲各界之佳話。

回憶起我自己的父親,從我有記憶之童年開始,不論是早年離家上學, 後來遠渡重洋, 時時接到父親以工整挺拔之秀麗毛筆給我寫的家信, 從勤工助學到草創事業,當我受到萬般困難時,總是再讀父親的家信,這股親情教諄指引了我人生向前的道路。

看了父親的墨寶,猶如州長的老錶,代表了親情, 代表了對父親的思念。
