Appreciation for Sending US. Airforce to Help Rescuing the Taiwanese People and Some Plea
Dear Mr. President,
The Taiwanese people are very touched to learn that you have sent aircrafts and helicopters to Taiwan for rescuing our fellow brothers and sisters in the isolated spots damaged by Typhoon Morakot. It is really notorious that our government hesitated to ask help from you and accordingly caused heavier toll. It is our concern that you may understand that the Taiwanese people do need and appreciate your help.
In contrast to the indifference of the KMT regime, the Taiwanese have strived to save as much lives by their own as possible. Thousands of volunteers entered the damaged villages to help brining out victims, or refuges to help giving the victims food and cares. However, civilians without proper training and equipments can do very little for saving lives. We cannot help stop the toll from growing heavier and heavier.
We plea that you may consider to allow your experts to stay in the damaged villages as long as possible. Only with your help, the Taiwanese can have some hope.
Thank you for being a "Good Samaritan"! May the Lord compensate you, "For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in. Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me." (Matthew 25: 35-36)
Most respectfully yours,
感謝您成為「好撒瑪利亞人」*！願 上帝親自回報您，「因為我餓了，你們給我吃，渴了，你們給我喝；我作客旅，你們留我住； 我赤身露體，你們給我穿；我病了、你們看顧我；我在監裡，你們來看我。」（馬太福音25:35-36）**
