Tom had never thought one day he would have to leave his apartment in Sai Gon and rent a hotel room.
But he had to do so recently, though just for a cou
ple of hours, to escape the cacophony caused by large loudspeakers in front of a building across the street for a promotion.

Why I’ll Never Return To Vietnam

Source: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/matt-kepnes/why-ill-never-return-to-v_b_1241016.html

Traveling through Southeast Asia, you are frequently asked where you are going. “Everywhere,” I tell people. This is my last adventure through the region. Except, I’ll be skipping Vietnam. After my experience there in 2007, I’ll never go back to that country. Never, ever, ever.

Updated Dec 26, 2011 10:39AM

The United States prides itself on being a melting pot, but the many immigrant stories that make up our uniquely American stew aren’t always known or published by the mainstream press. Take Thanhha Lai, who, in her recent National Book Award winner, Inside Out & Back Again, chronicles her family’s move to the U.S. from her native Vietnam in 1975.
This novel in verse, based on Lai’s …

We Are All Huỳnh Thục Vy

Chấn Minh
The establishment and evolution of Vietnam as a nation is an epic endeavor marked with uncertainties and difficulties. The darkest nights of Vietnamese history might last centuries, or decades, or mere months. The Vietnamese people might have to endure unbearable pains and sufferings, but Vietnam as country ultimately belongs to the Vietnamese people alone. And the Vietnamese people are always hopeful for a better future.
The great Vietnamese poet Nguyễn Du (1766-1820) lived through one of the darkest eras in the Vietnamese history. In the two concluding verses of a …

These latest arrests demonstrate the Vietnam government’s hostility toward people who seek to practice their faith freely, outside government constraints. The authorities’ actions against these peaceful religious advocates are a telling indicator of Vietnam’s deepening abuses of human rights.
