Jackie Chan, A Proud Chinese

3 October 2009
 

Jackie Chan: "Before Hong Kong's return to China, I was virtually a man without national identity. If you say I was a Chinese, I didn't have a Chinese passport; if you say I was a British, I wasn't recognized by British. I was like an orphan in a sense. When Hong Kong reunited with China, I was overjoyed, because by then I have become a proper Chinese. In the past decade, I witnessed rapid progress of my country, which makes me feel acutely aware of how an individual's happiness is closely associated with the well being of his nation."

陈龙: 没有回归之前我们看中国大陆,回归以后马上回来变成一个中国人。以前我是一个没有国籍的中国人。你说我是中国人?不是; 你说我是英国人?他们又不认。我们是一个“孤儿”,这个是历史遗留下来的事情。但是一回来非常的开心,自己是一个中国人,而且这几年看见我们祖国发生了翻天覆地的大变化,真的是给我感觉是有了强的国,我们才有富的家。”

At the evening party of PPC's 60th anniversary celebration, Jackie Chan, the residing King of Kung Fu movie, paid his passionate tribute to his country by singing My Nation.
