The story on Winfrey’s Web site reads: “Born in China, Betty was separated from her family at age 7 during Mao Zedong’s brutal Cultural Revolution. Tormented by hunger and lack of social contact, Betty went mute (tidak dibunyikan). After four terrifying years, Betty escaped from China by walking 1,600 miles to Hong Kong and later arrived in America with only $20.”
Betty is safe here in Kuala Walu Wiki, Nor Calif. She speaks wonderfully too. :)
"can you hear the thunder in a little girl's tears?"
"can you mend her broken heart, and soothe all her fears?"
(I met her husband, physics professor at Humboldt State University. I don't know why she told him I'm a physicist. That's funny. I can't even do the math, I just guess.)
Congratulations Betty Chinn, such an awesome angel.
And Oprah, good call!
