In those turbulent times,
people would throw their hands up in despair easily
if they lacked faith.
I think that people should take it seriously
after making a career choice.
Don’t follow the suit,
and complete it in a perfunctory manner.
If you have something on your conscience,
you won’t fear taking responsibility for your actions.
—Dr. Wu Lien-The
At the beginning of this year, I heard about Dr. Wu Lien-Teh, who is closely related to masks. The texts and images on the Internet were the first steps that got me to know Dr. Wu. The time of this sudden cognition fell on the tense moment of the outbreak of the novel coronavirus pneumonia (COVID-19) in Wuhan.
It was inevitable to feel a little guilty in hindsight. I felt incredibly proud when I learned that Dr. Wu was Malayan-born and died in Malaya. Slowly, I opened the door to know Dr. Wu, and then I read more about his wonderful life and outstanding contributions. It made me admire him even more.
