Double Ten Day

So, today there isn't going to be a post on a book because I want to note that today is Double Ten Day aka Taiwanese Independence Day. Wikipedia has an explanation of course. It commemorates the start of the uprisings which ended the Qing dynasty and established the Republic of China (the official name of Taiwan) which is not to be confused with the People's Republic of China.

There are some parades that go on in US cities with sizable Taiwanese populations. There is a lot of patriotic sentiment for Taiwan expressed as with the patriotism on American Independence Day, and I just wanted to take a moment to reflect.

You may now get back to your previously scheduled lives.
