Presidential Citizens Medal 2010 – Betty Kwan Chinn


Betty Chinn:
Hi, my name is Betty Chinn. I from Eureka, California. I am living in my
own town — my county, and serving the homeless
people who live in the bushes. And I did that because I was
homeless when I was a child, and nobody did for
me, but I’m here. This is my way to thank my
country, give me my freedom. I do what I like to do. This is my passion. And today is really
emotional for me. When I was seven years old, I
carried a sign on my neck saying “I’m a child of the
devil” because of the cultural revolution. But today I come here listen to
(inaudible) and the President. That’s really, really
miracle and emotional for me. And I really
appreciate American, whoever voted for me me
and bring me in here, and I thank everybody get
involved in this project. And thank you. I would encourage anybody, no
matter how big and how small, use your gift to benefit
somebody less fortunate than you and need help from you, become
passionate, and love them, and get involved. Don’t sit in the
house doing nothing.
