I met Brent Omdahl when I was ten years old, in Clayton, CA. My family moved into the house across the street, and he was my partner-in-crime until eighth grade, when his family moved to Germany. We reunited in college, and we've tried, with meager success, to stay in touch since.
I knew that Brent had been living in Vietnam for a while. He and his family now live in Georgia, and he recently sent me a note telling me that his son Ashton is returning to Hanoi to help an orphanage there.
I invite you to visit Ashton's website and consider helping him with a contribution. It's hard to imagine a worthier cause.
