My family fled Vietnam, now I might go back

Courtesy of Thanh Tan

What would it take to pack up your life and move to a new country? It’s a question Thanh Tan’s parents didn’t have the luxury of asking when they fled Vietnam to America 40 years ago. 

But Thanh has always wondered what life would have been like for her if her parents never left. So recently she decided to visit Vietnam to better understand her parent’s homeland and consider a move back.
