LIVING FOR A
STORY OF A CITY BOY WHO SURVIVED THE VIETNAM WAR BY LIVING FOR JESUS AND OTHERS
This book is partly a history book and also a personal diary. As these two parts weave together, one will see the divine presence and the secrets of life that have helped Viet survive throughout his life. He had to rely on the protection of his ancestors and the help of the Guardian Angels - the kind and generous people - that God would send him along the way. Most importantly, he has had to look up to his loving God and a higher purpose to stay alive and move forward each day.
Hence, his Memoir has taken the title "Living for a Higher Purpose." The book will guide its readers through many stories of Viet's life and eventually help them figure out what that higher purpose is. It also discusses many popular, current issues such as war and its victims, refugees and their life challenges, life under a Communist regime, core curriculum, how the world views America, the relationship between Catholicism (Christianity) and Buddhism, and much more.

This personal account demonstrates the strength of genuine faith and how God's love for each of us provides guidance for true purpose in life. Discarding selfishness and embracing a life of service to God and others provides unimaginable joy. Most of us live a life of privilege in the United States and Viet's experiences illuminate this in dramatic fashion. God Bless.
Praise & Reviews
This book is so fascinating that once I got to the part about escape at sea I couldn't stop. These unique true stories were written about all aspects of life. I was deeply touched by them. I felt that my faith has been deepened. This book is food for the soul. I highly recommend it. Thank you Father Peter Vu for written such a great book! I hope this book will be available in audio and will be made into a movie.
A excellent description of growing up in War ridden Vietnam. Not political, not about the war really, just a life event that highlights the courage of one man and his family/friends in a time of horror.
I am also prejudiced because he, P. VU, is a "real" friend that I see often.
My name is Rev. Peter G. Vu, a Catholic priest of the Diocese of Grand Rapids, Michigan for twenty-five years. I was born in Saigon City (currently Ho Chi Minh City), Viet Nam. I was a young boy when the Viet Nam War ended. I witnessed the War & the end of it with great horror and deep appreciation for peace. I had to grow up with the Communist government system and endured lots of hardship with them for over a decade. What had helped me and many of my countrymen tremendously during those dark days was our Faith and Prayers.
