美国 - 我的国家、我的爱 - 祝你生日快乐!
Happy Birthday America!


July 4, 2008

每日一语:

美国并没有造就我。 是像我一样追求自由的人们造就了美国。 美国并没有强求我爱她。 美国由她所信仰的,实行的价值赢得了我的爱。 美国是我的国家。 --- 陈凯

America has never shaped me. The truth is, I and the people like me with our yearnings for and pursuit of Freedom and Happiness, have shaped America. America has never forced herself upon me and demanded my love for her. America, with the values she represents and practices, has steadfastly earned my love and admiration. America is MY country. --- Kai Chen

Dear Visitors:

America saved me even before I could pronounce its name. This is because America is the country in which basketball was invented. Because of basketball and the love I had for the sport, I was able to pull myself from the abyss of helplessness and despair that infected most of the Chinese population back in the 1970s.

Basketball helped me express myself and my own values on the court, for I had no where else to express myself off the court. Basketball kept me sane and fostered a sense of self - a sense of self-awareness and self-exploration. It was through basketball I had learned about America. It was because of basketball, I had the chance to view that majestic Statue of Liberty at New York Harbor in 1978.

Today in this 232th birthday of America, I want only to say this: I love you America. I wish you many, many more happy birthdays.

Best. Kai Chen
