〔記者蘇孟娟/台中報導〕東海大學音樂系榮譽教授羅芳華從美國來台52年,人生近3分之2的歲月全奉獻給台灣音樂教育,創設東海大學音樂系培育無數音樂人才的她,今年過80歲生日,卻連生日大願都保留給學生,她許願用自己最擅長的音樂募款,要幫系上更換樂器、籌募發展基金,盼助學生好好學音樂。
    出生在美國的羅芳華原本已在美國大學教音樂,28歲時突感受到上帝召喚,要她做「特別的事」,她被派到全然陌生的台灣傳教,翻查地圖後,毅然飄洋過海來台,這一待就超過半世紀。
    羅芳華52年前到東海大學後,開始教音樂,46年前更創設東海音樂系,她的教學態度嚴謹且嚴格,上她的課不能吃東西;上課時間一到就鎖門,遲到的學生就在門外乖乖等下節課開門,她教學生得體與尊重。
    嚴謹的態度讓不少學生「很怕上她的課」,就算有學生被當,她甚至會讓學生明白,「她沒當過學生,是學生自己當自己」,即使嚴格出名,她的教學評鑑分數卻始終居高不下,學生對她又怕又愛。
    因為羅芳華心心念念的都是學生,她惜才愛才,積極幫助有天份且肯上進的學生,若學生來自弱勢家庭,她甚至會替學生支付與其他大師上課的費用;早年視聽資料有限,還會自掏腰包購買圖書、樂譜、CD提供全音樂系使用。
    寶貴歲月全部奉獻給學生的羅芳華,培育音樂桃李滿天下,68歲時退休,但她沒有選擇回美國,羅芳華說,她的生命因來台而豐富,她的朋友都在這裡,「為何要回去」;逾半世紀的台灣生活與奉獻,讓她跟這裡的人、事、物交織出綿密的情感網,她已把台灣視為落地生根的家。
    退而不休的羅芳華目前仍是東海大學榮譽教授,繼續教音樂史與鋼琴,她掛念的永遠是「如何給學生更多」,連她的80歲生日大願,還是要照顧她最愛的學生。
    羅芳華說,東海音樂系很多樂器老舊,汰舊換新速度緩慢,有的鋼琴甚至用了越過30年,她許願用自己最擅長的音樂募款,幫系上汰換鋼琴、更新設備,甚至籌募音樂系發展基金,以利設置獎學金,幫助學生學習。
    羅芳華號召她教過的不同年代學生,明年元旦先是前進台中國家歌劇院,1月12日再到兩廳院演奏廳舉辦「芳華半世紀.師徒同獻藝」音樂會,要用她的方式繼續照顧東海的學生。

    七十六歲的東海音樂系創系老師,羅芳華(Ms. Rose),實在太猛了!又能彈琴,又做早餐招呼客人,每天騎車散步游泳,還開演奏會。前年跟一群籃球選手上西藏,體力不遜色,也沒有高山症。 她沒有一般外國人的貓舌頭,辣的麻辣.......

    〔駐歐洲特派記者胡蕙寧/倫敦報導〕今年諾貝爾和平獎呼聲最高的兩大人物,分別是來自巴基斯坦的少女瑪拉拉.尤沙夫賽(Malala Yousafzai),以及美國前國安局包商雇員史諾頓(Edward Snowden)。
    這兩位被迫離開出生國度,目前流落他鄉的名人各有龐大的後援者支持,但和史諾頓不同的是,瑪拉拉的擁護者包括英國女王伊莉莎白二世,女王因讚佩她的勇氣,已發函邀請她十八日到白金漢宮訪問,當面給她嘉許與肯定。
    十六歲的瑪拉拉為爭取巴基斯坦少女的受教權,去年十二月遭神學士游擊隊開槍重傷腦部,之後送往英國接受四次大手術,昏迷六天後奇蹟生還。她立志未來從政,改變國家未來。

      16-Year-Old Pakistani Activist Receives Harvard Humanitarian Award

      Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai accepted the Harvard Foundation’s Peter J. Gomes Humanitarian Award on Friday to a nearly 1,000 person standing ovation in Sanders Theater.
      The 16-year-old Yousafzai, who gained international attention as a supporter of women’s education, roused the audience through her speech.
      “We are not here to make a long list of issues we are facing,” Yousafzai said. “We are here to find the solution…and it is simple: education, education, education.”
      Yousafzai began advocating for gender equality in education in 2008. Her activism led to reprisals from the Taliban, which attempted to assassinate her 2012. The international media followed her recovery, and Yousafazi continued to advocate for women undeterred by the Taliban.
      “I want every girl, every child, to be educated,” Yousafazi famously said after the assassination attempt.
      “These powerful words resonated with people around the world, with girls and boys, men and women,” said S. Allen Counter, director of the Harvard Foundation. “A new voice for gender equality was born.”
      During the award ceremony, Yousafzai discussed women’s loss of freedom and the destruction of schools following the Taliban takeover of the Swat Valley, the region in Pakistan her family calls home.
      “At that time, we did not keep silent,” she said. “We raised our voice—we raised our voice for the right of education.”
      She also spoke of the U.N. campaign launched in her name at a question and answer session with reporters before the event. Yousafzai said she would not back down from advocacy because of the assassination attempt.
      “Why should I wait for someone else?” she asked. “Why don’t I take a step forward? If I’m thinking that every girl should go to school and if I’m thinking about children who are suffering from child labor, I must continue my campaign for the education of girls and boys.”
      Yousafzai also echoed words from a previous speech in July she delivered before the United Nations.
      “Instead of sending guns, send pens. Instead of sending tanks, send textbooks. Instead of sending soldiers, send teacher,” she said.
      During the ceremony the Harvard Foundation also recognized Junaid Khan with the Award of Appreciation for the role he played as a doctor in saving Yousafzai’s life after the assassination attempt.
      “I believe that God saved my life. People’s prayers saved my life. And of course, Colonel Khan saved my life,” Yousafzai said.
      Previous recipients of the Humanitarian Award include actor James Earl Jones, AIDS researcher David Ho, and Bishop Desmond Tutu.
      The humanitarian award is given annually and honors the life and work of Reverend Peter J. Gomes, the longtime Memorial Church minister who died in 2011.
