I cannot believe how stupid this idea was. How can anyone so powerful do something so stupid?... I can understand that we have people suffering in another country, but this is the 21st century. It will be a miracle to get our people out of that kind of struggle. I feel the pain and sorrow for our people and wish to do more than I can, but this is not the right way to go about it. What will others think of the Hmong people now? How do we look in their eyes now?

How can someone so powerful do something so stupid? It's hard to say but it seems that in the beginning he could've had the best of intentions to create an organization that offered the Hmong people aid and financial assistance, but maybe his own anger and pride got the best of him and this is the end result. How will others think of the Hmong people? That is a hard question to answer, but the truth is no one really knows who we are or understand why we are in the United States. A lot of Americans don't know that Hmong Soldiers fought and died for the U.S. in the wars against communism, and that only a few were able to find refuge in other countries. They don't know about the thousand of Soldiers and families that were left behind who died trying to get to freedom. If the American public new our history, maybe they will not be so quick to judge. But I could always be wrong.
