What a busy Memorial weekend! As always, we take time this weekend to remember and honor all of the men and women who sacrificed their lives for their country. For me this weekend is also special because both of my babies have graduated. Ashley will be going to SMU with a full scholarship (Thank goodness!) and Kevin will attend JJ Pearce. I’ve had so many sleepless nights reminiscing about all of the milestones that have passed. This school year just flew by!
This summer will be a very special one for my family because we are going on a two-week vacation back to my homeland – Vietnam. As you all know, I came to the US in 1975 when I was little, so my recollection of Vietnam is very blurred. This will be our first trip to Asia. I hope that this will be an eye opener for my kids so that they can appreciate their lives here in America. I want them to realize how and why their grandparents and parents left the tyranny, repression, and injustice imposed by the Communists on their native land in order to search for the freedom and hope symbolized by America, “the arsenal of democracy “. We all valiantly overcame the barriers of a new way of life through determination and hard work. I want to thank America for welcoming us with open arms and giving me the opportunity to achieve my educational goals and become a contributing member of society. This will certainly be a memorable trip for all of us.
I want to wish all of the graduation class of 2016 best of luck as you embark onto your next chapter in life and remember that everything is achievable and possible because you are in America, the land of opportunity! ?
Finally, I want to wish everybody a safe and enjoyable summer.
Thank you for letting Mai Dentistry be your dentist! ?
