"Gia Tai Cua Me" (A Mother's Heritage). This is another song of Trinh Cong Son that I would like to introduce. It was also translated by Richard Fuller.

Lyric: A Mother's Heritage

A thousand years of Chinese reign.
A hundred years of French domain.
Twenty years fighting brothers each day,
A mother's fate, left for her child,
A mother's fate, a land defiled.

A thousand years of Chinese reign.
A hundred years of French domain.
Twenty years fighting brothers each day,
A mother's fate, bones left to dry,
And graves that fill a mountain high.

Refrain:

Teach your children to speak their minds.
Don't let them forget their kind
Never forget their kind, from old Viet land.
Mother wait for your kids to come home,
Kids who now so far away roam.
Children of one father, be reconciled.

A thousand years of Chinese reign.
A hundred years of French domain.
Twenty years fighting brothers each day.
A mother's fate, our fields so dead,
And rows of homes in flames so red.

A thousand years of Chinese reign.
A hundred years of French domain.
Twenty years fighting brothers each day.
A mother's fate, her kids' misdeeds,
Her kids filled with disloyalty.

(Refrain)

Enjoy listening, first you will hear Vietnamese, then…. You can download this song at this site

Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to
my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the
shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but
I had to tell someone!

It's genuinely very difficult in this busy life to listen news on TV, thus I only use the web for that reason, and take the most recent information.

When I originally commented I seem to have clicked the
-Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on
each time a comment is added I recieve four emails with the exact same comment.
There has to be a way you are able to remove me from that service?
Appreciate it!
