A Legend I Come Across Today 今日我看到「傳奇」

Yesterday I quoted my sister Ariel Tian's interpretation about what is tragedy and what is legend as follows:
"Tragedies are processes of how beauty is destroyed. 
Legends are processes of how beauty cannot be destroyed whatsoever."

昨日我轉發了雲坊Yun Boutique創始人田甜Ariel Tian關於「悲劇與傳奇」的「名言」:
「把美好被摧毁的过程展示给人看,是悲劇;把无论如何也无法被摧毁的美好展示给人看,是傳奇。」
Today I came across this article, which is about the early days of how Falun Gong's website Minghui.org was running. When I read these two paragraphs, I couldn't hold back my tears. I believe this is exactly what we should call "legend"(please note that all the editors are volunteers who have been paid nothing, and who have been working under similar conditions for more than 18 years now):

今日看到這篇講述法輪功網站明慧網(minghui.org)早期經歷的文章中的以下兩段,眼淚止不住汩汩地流了出來。我想,這就是我們所說的「傳奇」吧。(注:明慧網所有編輯都是義工,他們不是只在某段時間如此工作而已,而是在過去十八年多的時間內,一直N年如一日地,在這樣默默地、不爲世人所知地締造著「傳奇」):

"July 20, 1999, was a dark day. That morning, police arrested Falun Dafa coordinators across China, and the media controlled by the Communist regime started to broadcast the slanderous propaganda about Dafa.

「一九九九年七月二十日是一個黑色的日子。那天的凌晨,在中共江羅集團的策劃和一意孤行下,各地的警察同時發難,抓捕了法輪功在各地的義務聯繫人。之後中共操縱的所有喉舌媒體開始了轟炸式的誹謗宣傳。

"Many practitioners in China went to their local governments or Beijing to appeal for Dafa after they learned the news. Many practitioners in North America also went to Washington, DC, to hold rallies in front of the Chinese consulate and on Capital Hill, calling for public attention to stop the persecution. The situation changed very rapidly, and the Minghui website had to report the news in mainland China and overseas around the clock. The editors and technical practitioners at the website could no longer follow their normal daily schedules; instead, they had to spend their days and nights working on selecting, editing, and updating the articles. After they finished processing the large number of articles submitted by overseas practitioners during the day, articles from China came in waves in the evening. Round after round, they had very little time to sleep."

「大陸各地的學員聞訊紛紛到當地和北京的政府機構上訪。北美的很多學員也趕到美國首府華盛頓DC,在中領館和國會山等地集會,呼籲停止迫害。當時的形勢瞬息多變,更需要明慧網隨時報導大陸和海外的消息。明慧的編輯和技術人員完全沒有了正常的作息,不分晝夜的分揀、編輯和上傳來稿。白天處理大量的來自海外的投稿,到了晚上,海外的稿子處理完了,來自中國的稿件又如潮水般的湧來,這樣一輪又一輪,幾乎沒有休息的時候。」
