Irvine -- The "Unity, Peace and Remembrance" Candlelight Vigil
honoring Hong Il Kim, Thien Minh Ly, Haing S. Ngor and all victims of
violence in Buena Park on April 6, 1996, will be broadcast on this
evening's edition of "Subversity," a KUCI public affairs program. The
program airs tonight, April 16, 1996, from 5-6 p.m., on KUCI, 88.9 FM.
Mr. Kim was shot to death by police in Orange; Mr. Ly was stabbed to
death in Tustin; and Mr. Ngor was killed in Los Angeles. The vigil was
sponsored by the Council of Asian Pacific Americans. The vigil drew over
200 people from Southern California.
I am dedicating this show to the memory of my mother, Josephine
Tsang, 84, who passed away last Wednesday night in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Born and raised in Seattle, she left the U.S. in the 1930s for Asia, seeking a
new life in Hong Kong and China. She remained in Asia for over half a century
before returning to the U.S. in the late 1980s. Her work in a photo news
agency in pre-WWII Hong Kong and subsequent post-war work as a librarian
in a girls' school undoubtedly influenced my chosen professions. She
taught me writing, public speaking and oration. Her shining example in
bravely venturing, as a single woman, from the U.S. to the Far East sixty
years or more ago will always inspire my activism.
