- Aug 30, 2010Dear Max,
I'm very sorry to hear about your mother's passing. I know from you that she led a long and full life. It's really wonderful that you were able to be with her right at the end and with your family now. I hope it can be a meaningful time for everyone to gather together and celebrate your mother's life. You and your family will be in my prayers during this time of transition. Take care, Bac Max.

She has been sick for many months now so we were expecting this. On Sunday early morning she died peacefully. I was very happy to be here with all of the family for this time. On Wdnesday we will have her funeral. I will return to Hanoi sometime later next week.max

"Dialogue demands more courage than waging war. It takes you to that uncomfortable space where you have to question your own assumptions and, rather than speak on other people's behalf, truly listen to what they have to say, take it into consideration, and present your own views in a way that addresses the misunderstandings that have arisen." Haider Al-Mosawi
You Westerners have been coming to the Holy Land for centuries to visit the shrines,
the dead stones. But you do not see the living stones – the human beings who live
and struggle before your eyes. I say ‘Wake up!’ What matters are the living stones!
(Father Elias Chacour, cited in Bush, 1996)
