When did you come to Việt Nam and what motivated your decision?
The first time I came to Việt Nam was in 1967, as a 20-year-old soldier in the US Army. The year I spent in the war had a profound impact on me.
About Home, I have talked about my childhood place where I call Home, where I don’t need my private room. Now I want to tell you my being-home journey. Growing up, along my journeys, here and there… I have been sheltered under the roofs of many other homes.
The home where…
I was hosted in the house of a Christian family to celebrate Christmas in Italy.
I was invited to stay with of a mix African-European Muslim family in Switzerland to celebrate the Ramadan end.
I spent my retreat time living with Buddhist monastics in France, called Plum Village.
I used to stay with the owner, a Catholic nun, who was my friend, in a remote highland area of Vietnam during my backpacking trips.
I was indulged in good food by a rural Japanese family, during my studying trip.
And it was my home on an unbelievably packed train for a month-long journey across India.
That was my home for a month when I lived in a camping tent surrounded by nature, slept with ants and all kinds of insects underneath, shined by moon light above during the night, joined by summer storms from day to day. Đọc tiếp Home to the Gold of heart

VietNamNet Bridge – The government’s decision to stop the use of RON 92 petrol is expected to revive a series of ethanol plants which have been bogged down in problems.
Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung has stated at a meeting discussing the implementation of the biofuel development plan that RON 92 petrol will only be available in the market until December 31, 2017.
After that, only E5 RON 92 (biofuel) and RON 95 will be allowed to be produced in Vietnam.

globalwitness_It has never been deadlier to take a stand against companies that steal land and destroy the environment. Our new report Defenders of the Earth found that nearly four people were murdered every week in 2016 protecting their land and the natural world from industries like mining, logging and agribusiness.
Murder is just one of a range of tactics used to silence land and environmental defenders, including death threats, arrests, sexual assault and aggressive legal attacks.
