They Live Halfway Across The World

I just got back from Vietnam and it was sad. I love my country and I might say the government is horrible there, but not the people. It's just a beautiful country with great people that's ruled by idiots. I came to the US when I was 8 years old. I'm 13 now and I miss them so much. I just stayed with them for a month and left yesterday. I wanted to cry but had to hold my emotions in. I cried myself to sleep last night. It's hard to imagine your whole family halfway across the world and not seeing them for a really long time with no easy way of communication. I want to see them everyday, but life is better here in the US. And the plane ride from here to Vietnam is exhausting. But I'll grow up, have my own family and I'll be able to visit Vietnam any time I want. And I'll maybe even move back there to live out my old age. Either way, I'll never forget them.

I'm going through the same thing as you. I've been living in the US for 9 years and I miss my country like crazy. It's not easy leaving behind your family, friends and culture to start a new life. I'm still trying to fit in , but somedays are just painful. Also sometimes you have to deal with rude people saying things like speak english and go back to your country. The hardest thing is that I wish I could go back but I can't because it doesn't offer as many oppurtunities has here. But there's no place like home...
