4. February 21 (Sat.) Initially flew back to Taiwan at 9:00 a.m., but encountered strike staged by the employees with the control tower of Belize airport. The flight was delayed for nearly 5 hours and the airport was in chaos. During transfer in LAX, tons of people waited in line due to entry formalities of the United States. In the wait, the group met Taiwanese Legislator Lai Shih-Pao. Also, Chou Shang-Guan rushed to take flight to and study in Britain, but mistakenly took the passport of Chou Tien-Guan and was obstructed by the United States customs. Therefore, the group had a profound understanding that each Taiwanese needs to be more united and to win more credit for Taiwan. Only in this way can everyone have life dignity.
