In honor of Viet Nam’s National Day on 2 September here’s an article of mine that appeared in English and Vietnamese last year in VNExpress International and VNExpress.
Patriotism: The tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime (2.9.19)
Lòng yêu nước (1.9.19)
75 years ago today in Hanoi’s Ba Đình Square Ho Chi Minh (HCM) declared independence from the French, after five years of economic exploitation by the Japanese and over 80 years of brutal French control of all three regions of the country.
Happy Vietnam National Day! Chào mừng ngày Quốc khánh!
