General Vang Pao has passed away

General Vang Pao a revered leader for the Hmong people has passed away. He was 81 years old. It is said that his funeral will be 6 days long and will be attended by 4o,ooo people.

I grew up knowing about him but did not know much, every year he would attended the soccer tournament and Hmong new year in Minnesota. I saw him twice and feel that maybe I should’ve known him better. He was a great man to many Hmong people and will be missed. May he Rest in Peace.
