Dear Hong Cong Thuy,
Your post has been sent on to a number of us by Mark Solomon. I in turn will send it widely to friends of Vietnam here in the US. This note from
me is a personal one, as I am not an official spokesperson for the groups I work with, but I think I probably reflect the thinking of almost everyone
here who is getting a copy.
It is deeply moving to have this sense of shared suffering between our peoples, to know of your concern. Few nations in history have suffered
more heavily than Vietnam. I remember with deep emotion my own visits to Vietnam. I know also that many of those who will see your post were
involved in the movement to end the American invasion of Vietnam, and have strong hopes for the continued development of Vietnam in peace.
Thank you for thinking of the people now suffering in the Southern states.
Former Chair, War Resisters International
Member, National Committee Socialist Party USA

Hong Cong Thuy, General Secretary of the Vietnam-USA Society has just sent the message pasted in below. Also below is the message to which Thuy refers. Please circulate the latter as widely as possible, especially to local media.
I am attaching a letter of sympathy from the Vietnam-USA Society to American people to extend our deepest sympathy to the families and individuals that are suffering from the heavy losses in areas affected by horrible Hurricane Kathrina.
I would be grateful if you share it with anyone you know and to the news media in the US.

With deep concern and great sadness, we have followed the terrible news about Hurricane Katrina and the storms aftermath in the southern parts of the United States, especially the states of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, which have caused huge losses of human life and vast property damage to the people of that region.
We at the Vietnam-USA Society wish to convey to you, and through you to the American families and individuals who are enduring these losses, our deepest sympathy. We believe that strong community spirit and courage will help the American people to overcome and recover from the aftermath caused by Hurricane Katrina, one of the worst natural disasters America has faced in its history.
Yours in solidarity,
The Vietnam-USA Society
