曼君夫妇新年祝福

 

   四年前,張曼君是因爲助共和黨總統選舉,她來到了克里夫蘭,就這樣我們認識了。這次又是因爲競選,她再次到克利夫蘭,我們相互加深瞭解,8月我去加州,張曼君還將她93歲的母親介紹給我,讓我更瞭解她的家人,並且她給我一個我們可以合作的機會,看看2017年爭取一起合作。
   張曼君,美籍華裔,把中國歷史寫進美國敎材的女性。她曾任美國敎育部助理副部長、美國勞工部美西總長,現爲美國南加州大學敎授。
  2016年,美國共和黨川普獲勝,這幾個月她都在華盛頓加州兩地奔跑,我們1月20日會在華盛頓見面,在聖誕節之前他給我寄了一份賀卡並吿訴了我2016年她的工作。


2016 was a year of firsts for us. After starting off normally with one of Manchun’s seminars for high school students at Harvard University in Boston, we flew to China in June for Richard to present an award for the best animated film at the closing ceremony of the Shanghai Film Festival. We also traveled to Beijing on the 200mph train to visit with friends, since we were “in the neighborhood”.
Later we went to the “other east” to visit Richard’s mother, Helen, who is still going strong at almost 93 years old, and other family members in St. Louis.
Then Richard got the funding to recut his feature documentary for the U.S. market.Photos and the trailer are at the website, www.behind-bayonets-and-barbed-wire.com. The film opened on November 11, playing Los Angeles and New York, to be eligible for the Feature Documentary Oscar. Though in limited release, the people who saw it seemed to like it and some were brought to tears by the story of American POWs, who wereinterned in China by the Japanese during WWII. This is Richard’s first feature length directing credit in the U.S.
Of course 2016 was also important for Manchun, our resident politico. She supported Donald Trump early in the year by writing editorials in the Chinese press and participating in debates to support him. Later in the campaign, she traveled to battleground states to drum up votes for the Republicans. After the previous eight years of defeat, her hard work paid off on November 8th.
So both of us got a new start in November and are looking forward to 2017 to see what the next steps will be. We hope that you too will have a happy holiday season with a wonderful new year of new and enjoyable experiences.
