all i’ve got today

It’s an exhausting decision. And its been on our minds all week.

Should we stay or should we go

The warnings from the embassy pile up, each new notice layering on top, and we’re the princesses on a pea, shifting and uncomfortable

In countries where commercial departure options remain available, U.S. citizens who live in the United States should arrange for immediate return to the United States, unless they are prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period.

Our life here is rich, comfortable, and the Vietnamese response has been steadfast. But we still balance a multitude of factors, not least of which is mental strain, that clash.

Should we stay or should we go

But as we ponder, I pause and remember. And I am grateful.

At least we, unlike many, have the choice.

Teaching in Ha Noi, screwing things up daily but surviving to write about it. ...everything's perfectly all right now. We're fine. We're all fine here now, thank you. How are you?
