US-CHINA-BASKETBALL-CHEN
Episode 4

– Beijing Olympic Games Revelation –

The Olympic Games are a great event. They fully display an individuals talents. They call for competition in a fair way. It should be this way in the human society. The individual’s talents should not be repressed. If you are talented, you should be allowed to show it. Yao Ming is 2.3 meters high, but you are
only 5 Chinese chi tall. You can’t beat him. It is not a matter of fairness from God. God is fair to everyone indeed. He has his talents and you have yours. You can develop your talents as well as he can. Let there be competition in all fields. It is a good idea to promote the Olympic spirit in our lives, with fair competition to keep it equal for everybody. This nourishes the feelings of brotherhood and sisterhood. There can not be any prejudice and bias in different races and cultures.

Episode 3

3a – Happiness
In 1981 I came to the U.S. I attended an adult school while doing some temp work. I taught Chinese, and did film dubbing. I learned a lot about human-relationships through the temp work. It was a great learning experience. In 1986 I graduated from the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA) with a degree in Political Science. Why did I study Political Science? I wanted to understand what on earth had happened in my life. I wanted to think again about my life in China, what was it about, what was the meaning of life, what composed a society, what was a society with ethics and without ethics. I am still pursuing these questions.

Episode 2

2a – My basketball –

Somebody said that the 81 Army Basketball Team is like a motel. Many people came to join, but few tayed. Training was excessively over done sometimes, and caused severe+ fatigue. When I over exerted myself, and my body lacked nutrition, and rest, and when on top of that I had political study everyday after aining, it caused me to have insomnia for a long long time. There was too much stuff on my mind, and it resulted in blood in my urine. My urine was the color of soy sauce. I felt I was on the verge of collapse at any moment. But I was hanging in there with a strength, that continued to push me forward. Under these circumstances, I wasn’t sure if I was lucky or not, I was not yet beaten down.

Episode 1 – My Path

1a  – The Time of being lost
I was in Beijing, China, in a family with a “bad” background. My parents had “political” issues (Kai chen’s parents wedding photo), plus relatives in Taiwan. Due to a civil war, my parents’ 10 sisters and brothers were separated to Taiwan and the mainland. My uncle Li Bangxun was an air force hero. During the anti Japanese war period, the American Volunteer Group granted my uncle, with 15,000 hours of flight time with no crashes, the award for best pilot. My grand father and father stayed in Beijing.
