I am a writer coming fromVietnam, a country which suffered much losses and heartbreaks after a very long war, lasting 30 years. And I also lived for over 30 years in the post – war period full of uncertainties. That is why I am very honored to be present here to express that, writers, notwithstanding which country, which nation, all share aspiration of peace, freedom, harmony.
Each country, each nation has own culture, own beauty, but the writers have the common voices those are loving mankind, respecting the beauty, because beauty always support and dignify mankind.
I would like to thank the Organizing Committee of the S.E.A. Write Award for giving me the opportunity to receive this award in the Kingdom of Thailand which is full of beauty and hospitality.
