A Fallen Star
My blood boiled when I read about the atrocities committed by the Japanese Imperial Army against the Chinese people in Nanking during its invasion. After reading it, I had a better understanding of the cause of the Japanese Imperial Army's callous disregard for human suffering. I was able to let go of some of the anger and prejudice I had held since I was a kid.
Recently, I heard a rumor that Iris Chang committed suicide. I didn't believe it until it was confirmed by friend. I don't understand why Iris would be pushed to commit suicide. However, it's definitely a tremendous loss to the progressive and literary world. The world lost of critical voice.
With me, Iris Chang lives on.
