I might be wrong on the year, but it’s probably late 1985 where I began my voyage left Vietnam to seek better life. I left with my dad leaving sister and younger brother at home with mom, grandma and grandpa. It was a family plan from 13 people, 1/2 kids, 1/2 adult, 3 woman. It seems like each family a father would go with a son and leave behind their wife and other kids. The boat wasn’t big at all, it was a fishing boat. Took us 9 days 8 nights floating in the sea waiting for rescue from anyone at sea.
