Day 4 of 5 Hunger Strike.

Retired teacher James Hon Lin-shan, who has been on a hunger strike for 112 hours, rests inside a tent during a demonstration against the launch of national education outside government headquarters in Hong Kong

The nighttime was very windy making it difficult to sleep.

I spend most of the day praying for the children and families of Hong Kong.  I had two secondary students stop and they shared how much they disliked their schooling.  They thanked me for listening. These were not bed students but normal students and intelligent.  Clearly education in Hong Kong needs to be closely examined and modified to meet the demands of the students and not the demands of the school.

A women I met shared about her costly divorce (100,000USD, 800,000HKD) and then having to move into Hong Kong public housing to survive after the divorce costs were all met.  Sad.  In Hong Kong living in public housing is the most affordable way to live.  Again, Sad.
