should have won an Oscar, 18 June 2006
Author: thomasvinh from United States

Had it been some probable twist of fate, Heidi would be standing in their sandals amongst the squalor. Perhaps she could not provide much assistance given her own circumstances but that's no reason to cut off her family like she did. She could continue some communication through a third party and help out if she could. She could attempt to make them understand how things are in the U.S. and that she has been raised in a different standard of living that is unlike what they go through in Vietnam. The tragedy of this story is the misunderstanding that belies these two cultures and says a lot about our poor understanding of each other.
