An American Postcard

A postcard with love from the world's first National Park

Dear Papa-san,

    It's so wonderful for a human being to realize how huggable nature is.
Yellowstone gives a man just that feeling. Each corner of the gorgeous park is a handprint of God; each path to the depths of the green forest is beaten by His footprints...
    My existence here is a God-given gift, and you have, alongside other American Viet vets, kept safe that gift--adopting me to America.
