Decision To Leave Vietnam

Decent Essays
The decision to leave the country is very difficult for many reasons. One reason being that maybe there prisoner of war father returns after they leave. Which is shown when Brother Khoi says, “ What if father comes home and finds his family gone.” (Pg. 44) Another reason is shown when Brother Quang says,” without honor, without dignity.”(Pg.44) This shows they don’t want to be seen as cowardly by other Vietnamese people and leave when Vietnam is such and strong willed and honored country. A final reason could be just the struggles of leaving the country. Like trying to buy a home in a new country and trying to learn a new language as a refugee. All of these reasons show that this is a very tough decision for the family.
