Letters: Something to celebrate

Double Ten Day is the national birthday. It is natural to arrange programs and activities around the country to mark the day and create an atmosphere of joy and excitement.

Recently, however, some media have reported that this year's "National Day performance" will not only be a waste of resources but is designed solely to praise the president. However, this event provides a chance for us to recognize both our military strength and the importance of national security. In the face of warmongering China, we need to carry out activities that boost people's confidence and morale.

Furthermore, I think soldiers shoulder the mission of defending the nation and its people. As China spends lots of money on an arms race and considers the government of Taiwan as its enemy, it is a matter of course that we must demonstrate our military force and weaponry on our national birthday. This serves to enhance the confidence of our people in our national security.
