Jawn Sha, No cha -- Chúc mừng năm mới


Happy New Year – above is the greetings in Hmong and Vietnamese.


The Year of the Buffalo (Ox)

1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009


Mine is the stabilizing force

That perpetuates the cycles of life

I stand immobile against the

Test of adversity.

Resolute and unimpeachable.

I seek to serve integrity,

To bear the burdens of righteousness.

I abide by the laws of nature-

Patiently pushing the wheel of Fate.

Thus, I shall weave my destiny.

I am the Ox.

Pls. note that I’m not much on line and Internet connection is slow and under the weather here. Wanted to post this earlier but Internet was out for most of the day. As I promised last time, I will catch up when I’m back. Thanks.
