When the Vietnam war was occurring many people were fleeing the war-zone because it was dangerous and destructive.
A long time ago a grandmother a mother and two young sisters made a life changing decision when they fled Vietnam and boarded a boat to possibly no-where.
One of the young girls name is Tan Le and she was scared of the journey ahead of her and excited for a chance of a new life.
Tans mother always carried a small bottle of poison with her incase they got captured by pirates. They all would rather die than be pirate slaves.
For 5 days and nights the ocean pushed them to Melbourne in Australia. They hoped that they would find land so they could live a life with happiness and family. They were all relieved.
= Footscray, Melbourne Australia
Tan's mother worked on a car assembly line and she worked 6 days a week double shifts. She somehow had time to learn how to speak English and gain an IT qualification. They were poor.
