For over 50 years Saigon Kids have existed, yet to this day “our story” has never been told to the world. We are the ‘forgotten ones’ who have been overshadowed by stories about everything under the sun of the Viet-nam era. No books have been written from the perspective of dependant children living in Saigon during the Viet-nam era.
Saigon Kids our time has arrived – to tell the world OUR STORY!
If it is going to be – it is up to US!
It is time to – JUST DO IT! 🙂
I know you are ABLE …
Are you READY – are you WILLING!?!
Contribute short stories you have written about Saigon … or to write a short story about Saigon and your experiences while living there.
Yes, yes … I can hear some of you out there now as you are thinking, “I’m not good at writing”. People, people if you can talk – you can write! How many times have you sat around verbally telling people stories about your experiences in Saigon? All you have to do is tell the same story, but write it … heck, say it out loud to yourself (when nobody is around of course – cuz you don’t want them thinking you’re talking to yourself – lol ) and type it as you talk it. Simple enough. Or, run over to Amazon and grab one of those voice recognition software programs – then just set in front of your computer telling it your stories while you watch your words being typed on the computer screen — it just doesn’t get any easier!
These don’t have to be literary Nobel Prize quality master pieces. Just write it the best you can …
Email it to me.
Once we’ve collected enough stories they will be compiled into a book for publication – telling OUR STORY to the world!
Us lil’ ole’ Saigon Kids are a part of history – a vital part – who’s story needs to be told, recorded and preserved in the annals of history.
So, let’s get to it Saigon Kids – or we’ll remain the ‘forgotten ones’ forever.
Let’s not let that happen!!!!
Now, send those stories in …
