Guest Post: Soe Reh
My name is Soe Reh and I like corn. I was sleepy last night but I just had to have another bite of corn. I have 3 brothers and a big sister. I just got to America last Thursday and been hanging out at the McMurphy’s. Mostly I just play and eat and sleep. You know I am two years old!
My father, Dee Reh, and mother Kay Heh, brought me here because they wanted me to be safe. Its been crazy, with day being at night time and all.
I really like getting in the shiny metal wagon because when we get out we are with new people and are at different places. We have met a lot of Burmese friends since we got to this place. Some of them speak like my mother and father.
When we came to America each in my family were wearing string bracelets. Our friends from before, tied these strings on our hands. We came from a big camp and before I was born my mother and father lived in Sa-lawnghtawng, Burma.
There are some big people here that look very strange and act and speak funny. Sometimes I laugh with my family. I like my big sister and brothers they help me. My other brothers play with me. I really like the yellow toy with wheels that go ’round and ’round. In fact I gotta go find that thing right now.
Oh in that picture that is my family, I was sleeping.
