A Memoir of Viet Nam

Thuong Vuong-Riddick’s The Evergreen Country came in the mail yesterday. The author sent me the book in a return favor of using “Bonjour Viet Nam” slideshow for a presentation. I am reading it and here is the translation of the proverb we all know by heart:

Father’s work is like the mountain Tai Son
Mother’s dedication is like a spring running water
With the same heart we must worship Mother and respect Father
To accomplish this is a son or a daughter’s religion.
