Lá rụng về cội
(The falling leaves return to their roots)
My name is Jeff Nguyen. I was born in Vietnam and came to the United States when I was two years old. I was adopted by an American family and I have lived in Pennsylvania, Colorado and Florida. I have been blessed with health, family and education. I have taken each one of these things for granted at times in my life. I have come to realize that these things are more important than silver and gold. All people deserve these things but as long as the many continue to sacrifice for the few these resources become scarcer. I hope you can find something in this blog that makes you think about things in a new way.
“Is this not the fast that I have chosen:
To loose the chains of injustice,
To undo the heavy burdens,
To let the oppressed go free,
And that you break every yoke?”
-The Book of Isaiah

Collectively, solutions can be found for the problems that exist but it will take courage and shared wisdom. Another intent of these writings are to deconstruct the myths many of us have been raised on through the powerful influence of the media and teachings of the dominant culture. This blog is for the dreamers and the critical thinkers. Peace and solidarity to every reader.
