The Second Spring of the Strait



Hong Shu-mian was born in Weitou, Fujian Province of the People’s Republic of China in 1949 and served in the Red Guard. Lu Shui-tong was born in Kinmen , Fujian Province of the Republic of China in 1937 and served as a naval intelligence officer.

Before coming to Kinmen’s 8/23 Bombing War Victory Memorial, this widow from Xiamen and this widower from Kinmen still argued over the circumstances of the war: as to say which side truly initiated the war and which side suffered the most tragic losses? Then they strode past the political barriers built between the two countries’ shores and passed into a new life together.
