Freedom is precious

Hong Kong people should have the right to choose their leader. Many of us now are not satisfied with the current situation. The government should show us more respect and acknowledge our concerns.

I am afraid that our freedoms will be taken away. It is the most precious thing we have now.

I don't know what will happen next. All I know is that I will keep staying here to fight.
