State Department spokeswoman, Victoria Nuland, says New York University (NYU) has offered a Fellowship to Study in the USA, for China’s Chen Guangcheng. NYU has offered Chen, to be able to come to the United States, on a Visa for him and his immediate family. The Visa is only for a few months.
My Two Cents Worth
Obviously, China and the US Diplomats get to “save face” however, does this really help Chen Guangcheng? Does anyone get it, that he has probably got PTSD, and needs to adjust? That this is just heavy cosmetics, on a terrible human rights issue. If his future is still not stable, how is he going to settle down? He needs to be able to feel at home here, and feel safe here, and so does his family. I hope this works out for him. It remains to be seen. I will continue to pray for Chen, his family and for China.
" The “door of faith” (Acts 14:27) is always open for us, ushering us into the life of communion with God and offering entry into his Church. It is possible to cross that threshold when the word of God is proclaimed and the heart allows itself to be shaped by transforming grace. To enter through that door is to set out on a journey that lasts a lifetime." Benedict XVI
