Lye a New Friend

I ran into Lye on the breakwater, he was fishing and enjoying a day off from work. We exchanged our immigration stories of why we came to the USA. His was far more dramatic than my own. I also found that as a Vietnamese Interpreter, I found that his English was far better than my Vietnamese.  Lye a naturalized US citizen, like myself, passes on the benefits to his children, for his hard work.  We cherish our heritage, but Love America.
