When I told her that I represented the government and people of the

United States, she replied using the familial terms that make Vietnamese such an

intimate language: “Hom nay, chung ta la anh chi em.” You and I are now brother

and sister.”……..;+)

I wish, BUT, don’t hold your breath, “we”(if there is a “we”) are still very much a “dysfunctional family”………;+)
