Xu.

Please take good care

of him while we're away.

You can count on me, Ms. Li.

I will make sure Eric is safe.

XU:
Prior to the occupation,

Mr. Li had applied for a furlough

from the London Missionary Society,

allowing him to travel to

Canada with his family,

but permission had not yet arrived.

He felt he was duty bound

to serve those in need

in the good times and the bad.

(INDISTINCT CHATTERING)

(FOG HORN BLOWING)

Well, you know I'll be

there as soon as I can.

You have to let your

grandmother know we're all fine.

You have to show her how beautiful

your handwriting has become,

and I have to show the children here

how to write as beautifully as you do.

Please don't think this is a gold medal.

Oh, Florence.

I love you.

One last hug, darlings.

We'll be together again soon.

We'll all be together again soon.

(WHISTLE BLOWING)

Ladies and gentlemen.

Anybody who is not sailing

with us, please leave the boat.

I'll be home soon.

- PATRICIA:
Bye.

- Bye.

I love you.

HEATHER:
I'm going to miss you.

I'll miss you, too.

I'll be home soon.

You look after the new

baby for me now, okay?

You promise?

HEATHER:
I promise.

Promise?

XU:
Even though the Japanese Imperial

Army had looted and taken over his home,

Mr. Li believed in

praying for his enemies.

I had other thoughts, but

I kept them to myself,

as I was learning to respect Mr. Li.

Much time would pass before I found

the value in thinking his way.

Mr. Li was forced to leave his home and

seek shelter with the other refugees

at the school where he was teaching.

(SPEAKING MANDARIN)

For me?

Let's go for a run. Come on, now!

(BOY SHOUTING IN MANDARIN)

XU:
He ran every day without fail.

It took me some time to realize

he was running not just for himself,

but for us.
