Press Release (ePRNews.com) - ORLANDO, Fla. - Sep 05, 2018 - Thu Trang Dao, a dedicated writer and author hailing from South Vietnam, has completed her new book “Saigon River: A True Story”: a riveting retelling of struggles, heartwarming moments and fateful circumstances in Vietnam as well as in a foreign land.
The author shares, “We had been on the ocean for three days, but no one had come to rescue us. Though we saw many boats passing, they did not stop for us. I heard the men say that all the boats were afraid to stop because they thought we might take over their boats. The two children in front of me were crying more and more because they were so hungry. I looked at my bag to see how many crackers I might have left. I had a few small pieces of cracker that I had been saving for three days now. I thought, Should I give my cracker to help those kids out, or should I keep it for myself until the last day? I leaned forward and said, ‘Here, babies, this is all I have left to eat.’ Their mom looked at me and smiled. The boys were so hungry they were shaking just to hold onto the crackers. After they finished, they both went to sleep. I closed my eyes and prayed, ‘Please, God, please help us. In this boat are innocent children. Please help us. I know you can hear me because you have helped me before. Please help us now.’”
