Lies and Faith
These old men were soldiers for the KMT government, who promised to give them land to farm on once they got to return to the mainland. THEY NEVER DID.
Lies are often told to people to support their cause, and also to build up confidence amongst the population. Sometimes it is justifies for them to do so, sometimes it isn’t. But no matter what it instils a faith into them. A FAITH, THAT MAKES THEM STAY LOYAL AND FEEL IMPORTANT TO THE CAUSE.
When the weather turns cold it just feels bad. Really bad, like downcast, glum. Doleful perhaps. Such weathers are great for some boozin’ action. Argh never mind. Ignore me. This old man typing in front of the computer is gonna go mad soon.
Follow your dreams
Be yourself an angel of kindness
There's nothing that you cannot do
I believe I believe I believe in you
Recollections is bliss. The present is gruesome enough. =)
