In October 2017, UCSD Tzu Ching had an officer retreat planned by their alumni. At the retreat, we learned the sign language for the song “One Family” and recorded a video of the performance!
Fun Fact: This video was played at a Tzu Chi event held in Toronto for the new immigrants from the Middle East.
See that news feature of that event here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f74XW-p2L9k (Chinese Only – sorry! )
Hope to see you all soon! 🙂
