Today, April 30th 2022 marks 2 special occasions – Journey to Freedom Day here in Canada, and Holding Heritage’s 1 year anniversary!
To learn more about Journey to Freedom Day, hop back over to Episode 3!
In today’s episode, I share a couple parts of a really special memento, which is a handmade scrapbook that was gifted to my mom’s family by their 9 sponsor families when they first arrived in Canada almost 42 years ago.
My late grandfather’s name was Ly Van Huy, but to me, he was 公公 (gong1 gong1). He wrote a letter addressed to all 9 of the incredible families – in response to receiving this heartfelt book. My mom and I read this letter in both Vietnamese and English.
