Subject: Candlelight Vigil on KUCI 

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.
