I really wanted to go to Africa

With the sun in my eyes

 Provo, Utah – 4 November 2008


My dear friend Lian,
I’ve always been honest with you and plan to continue that way, but sometimes I think it’s essential to underscore and remember certain things. Therefore, go ahead and lock this letter in the safe of your new office as mayor of Creek City and remember it’s there. If you feel like it, go ahead and reread it every so often.
Years ago – I never found out how or why – you and your family came to Provo from some village in North or South Vietnam (you know it makes little difference to me). For me, the only thing that Vietnam calls to mind is a war that was waged and lost less than honorably by the United States of America.

………… even with the sun in my eyes.
In friendship,
