Saigon Postcard No. 23: A Round of Applause

"Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?'"

As Covid-19 throws the world into disarray like an untethered coral polyp tossed against the rocks during a violent squall, Vietnam remains somewhat stable; life relatively routine. There is a reason for this. Keeping the country from falling into chaos demands the generosity, diligence and hard work of doctors, nurses, delivery drivers, store clerks, garbage sweepers and security guards.
