I never forget my country. The first time I went back to my country was in 1992. That was the last time I saw my mom. My mom's blouse is the only thing I have from my country. My aunt gave it to me when I went to visit Vietnam. When I look at my mom's blouse, I miss her a lot and all my family when I was young. Because its my memories and when I left my family. My mom didn't like me to leave her. She cried every day because she missed me a lot. Ten years later I came back home to visit her and my country. It's too bad that it was the last time I saw her.
