Growing up in Taiwan

30 August 2015   by Huang Chih Mei

I left Taiwan for the US to study in the 1980s, when Taiwan was still under the rule of KMT's Chiang Ching-Kuo. I was not particularly concerned about politics, as Taiwan was a prosperous society and I didn't really experience any hardships during my growing up years.

When I went home for holidays in-between school terms, I noticed my younger brother's computer monitor was draped with all sorts of head bands he had collected from attending various public protests, be it for "amendment of the Constitutions", "calling for direct Presidential elections", or "anti-nulcear plants".

I was extremely uncomfortable seeing those colourful head bands and asked him, "Is it safe to go for those protests?" My brother laughed and said, "Time has changed! It's no big deal now."
