July 1st and 3rd, 2010. There is no denying the fact that I along with many of my fellow Hmong mourn the loss of a courageous and resilient warrior who at times has shown to all of us that he too is subject to human frailties. His death represents an end of an era for Hmong in America. There will be no other like General Vang Pao. His courage in battle will be missed; his legacy of the war years will be honored by his compatriots and his time in Laos and in America will be studied by scholars and long remembered.

Then we were farmers, living in our ancestral homeland- high hills and mountains of China. Then we express ourselves with threads and needles. Now we are doctors, lawyers, educators, politicians and etc. Now, we expressed ourselves with paint and paint brushes.
