As my friends have insisted that this book be written in the first person, to make it more authentic, I have constantly used the personal “I”. I trust this will be forgiven, as no one knows better then myself that there were many at Hong Kong who shared my experiences and had more harrowing ones. It is certain that many died and we, the survivors, were the fortunate ones, we lived, to be reunited with those we love.
