I received this ‘most inspiring email of 2010’ the other day, from a ‘western’ friend who is spending a few months in the Mekong Delta of Viet Nam. Of note, he is also a Nam Marine Vet who is a holder of The Purple Heart.
Dear friends and family,
I was in a pissy mood yesterday so I decided to walk in to town alone and calm down. On the way, someone yelled “merci” at me from his yard and waved. I waved back and continued walking. A minute later I looked back to the sound of footsteps. There he was. He gave me half a tangerine. He then gave me a smile, a hug, and a kiss on the cheek. Instant cure.
Love to all,
The gift you receive is the one you give!
