Thoughts on Survival

I got one more gigantic question for you.


Why do you think you survived?

I'm not going to say I'm a hero. I don't know. I'm lucky. I don't know. The same bullet could hit me like hit somebody else. I was lucky. I... Where I was going, I always feel I am lucky. And I have a strong feeling I'm going to survive. I have that kind of strong feeling. I'm going to survive. And uh, during the war, believe me, I been sitting, I'm... I always like to go for revenge and I took some revenge. How much I could and how much I could, still not enough.

That's a good answer.
