It is because our youngsters had never experienced the hardest period in Hong Kong before. Hong Kong is now cooling down from her vigorous growth in the past. From the saying of elders that go, the Spirit of Lion Rock is "as you reap, so you sow". What a sigh to say that the spirit that we are proud of is being forgotten by the time. Coming to this generation, what does the Spirit of Lion Rock truly mean to us?
