Kim Lee 写给反家暴网络的信(6)

谢谢你们的邀请,我非常愿意参加你们的活动,不过我现在还不知道案件开庭的日期。(译者注:反对家庭暴力网络邀请Kim参加该组织在国际反暴日期间的活动)

深深地感谢你们在这段困难时期给给予我的不懈支持。

我相信我为自己和孩子们做出的决定是正确的,现在我希望能集中精力帮助更多的人。李阳仍在媒体上继续美化自己和他的施暴行为。这使我非常担心无数接受了这些非常、非常错误的信息的青少年们。

如果中国家庭暴力的统计数据准确的话,在每一次听李阳演讲的学生中有相当多的人目睹过家庭暴力的发生。而且,我收到了大量学生的令人心碎的来信足以印证这一事实。

青少年在每天的自我斗争中形成自己的人格和价值观,同时又要在巨大的竞争和压力环境里完成学业。这是中国学生面临的巨大挑战。他们是明天的主人。他们的学术能力以及人格品质,共同决定着中国和世界的未来。

作为一名老师,我当然不否认学习英语或其他知识的价值。中国学生对英语学习的巨大热情是吸引我留在中国的主要原因。然而,作为老师,在教授知识和技能的同时,我深感有责任激发同学的创造力,培养他们的同情心。

目前我只能初步接受你们的邀请。但是,我可以明确表示完全同意你们编写材料免费发放给中国的学生。

源源不断地收到学生们的信件话语和素不相识的陌生人的支持,带给我巨大的鼓励和力量。谨此希望我的文字也能为他人带来帮助。

加强发展支持的循环、互相鼓励和教育,是打破家庭暴力循环的重要一步。

在此表达友谊和感激之情

Kim

来信原文:

Dear Zhang Liu,

Thank you for your kind invitation. I would very much like to attend this event. However, I still do not know the date of my divorce trial.

Please know that I deeply appreciate your continued support during this difficult time.

I believe that I have done the right thing for myself and my children, now I wish to focus my attention on helping others. It concerns me deeply that Li Yang continues to glorify himself and his violent acts in the media. It concerns me even more deeply that countless young people are being exposed to a very, very dangerous message.

If the statistics regarding domestic violence in China are accurate, a significant number of students sitting before Li Yang at every lecture have witnessed family violence. In fact, I have many heartbreaking letters from our students to substantiate this fact.

Young people are in a daily struggle to shape their characters and ideals, all while carrying a heavy academic workload in a competitive and pressure-filled environment. This is an enormous challenge for Chinese students. They are growing into the adults of tomorrow. Not only their academic skills, but also their moral character, will determine the future direction of China and the world.

I am a teacher.Of course I can never deny the value of learning English or any other subject. Students' great enthusiasm for learning was what attracted me to China in the first place. However, as a teacher, I feel a deep responsibility to inspire the development of creativity and compassion along with knowledge and skills.

Right now, I can only offer a tentative acceptance of your invitation. But, you have my most definite commitment to write materials for free distribution to Chinese students.

The words and stories that poured forth from my students and even those supportive comments from strangers sustained my courage and gave me strength. I now humbly hope that my words can do the same for others.

Strengthening and growing this cycle of support, encouragement and education is a very important step toward stopping the destructive cycle of domestic violence.

With Friendship and Gratitude,

Kim
