The world needs more JACKIE CHANs

>> Thursday, August 26, 2010

I like Jackie Chan's movies but never knew much about him. Now I know how good of a man he is. His offer of peace is unexpected but most badly needed in this most difficult time. May your tribe increase, Jackie.
Action movie superstar Jackie Chan provided a voice of reason and extended a hand of friendship to Filipinos over the recent hostage crisis via his verified Twitter account, @EyeOfJackieChan.

Jackie Chan explained that he had just arrived in Hong Kong from South Korea and was shocked to learn of the tragic hostage crisis at the Quirino Grandstand in Manila last August 23 that left eight tourists from Hong Kong dead.

"this kind of things always happen around the world. It happen to hk's people, the whole hk is talking about it. Its really sad," the movie star said at around 11:40am (Philippine Time) on August 25, 2010.

"If they killed the guy sooner, they will say why not negotiate first? If they negotiate first, they ask why not kill the guy sooner? So sad," he added.

In a magnanimous gesture, Jackie Chan extended a hand of friendship to Filipinos:

"HK is a nation built by a lot of different people..don't worry! We do not hate!" he Tweeted.

"Humans should be united and not kill or hate each other," he also exhorted. - TJ DIMACALI, GMANews.TV
