Blue Dragon in-depth
So what does that mean for Blue Dragon? While the workshops and classes will always have a place, to really shape the young people in our care we need to be their role models.
We ask that people around the world who share our belief that children deserve a childhood contribute what they can, so that we can keep this work happening.
For kids like Xuan who’ve spent most of their lives just trying to defend themselves from the next attack, the journey to peace and fulfillment is a long one. “Happy ever afters” don’t come easy.
It’s a lesson we all need to learn. The rush of life never ceases, and we mustn’t let it overwhelm us. There’s always time to stop and be thankful.
For Diep, there will never be restitution, but I know that in the end she fulfilled the one last wish she had in life: to say goodbye to her daughter.
So it’s fine for Huong to tell us a cover story, if she feels more comfortable doing so. The point is that she shouldn’t have to, and she shouldn’t feel a need to. People who are trafficked should never be made to feel guilty for being the victim of this crime.
