A Worthy Project
"All gave some, and some gave all."
Min Zhou was taking pictures of each individual headstone of the 52 Nationalist Air Force cadets at the Fort Bliss National Cemetery, El Pasco, TX.
I shared with many of you about a documentary in making, “My 58 Uncles.” Here is a 13-minute promo video. It is a film about uncovering a mystery in WWII — why 52 Chinese Nationalists Air Force cadets were buried in the Fort Bliss National Cemetery, El Pasco, TX, and six of them at Fort Benning, GA.
To me, it is a film about love, not romantic love, but one’s love for family, homeland, and freedom. This kind of love motivated these young cadets to pay the ultimate price so we can enjoy peace and prosperity today. It is the kind of love that inspires us never to forget their sacrifices and are determined to help find their families.
Therefore, I’m launching a GoFundMe campaign to help Min Zhou, the director of this film, to raise money so she can bring this moving story to a theater near you. If you’d like to help, please go to the film’s GoFundMe page and every penny counts.
