Thank you, Mr. speaker. I rise today to commemorate the 48th anniversary of Black April. I am proud to represent Orange County's Little Saigon, which is home to the largest population of Vietnamese in the world outside of Vietnam itself. During Black April we remember the fall of Saigon, those who served in Vietnam, and those who lost their lives fleeing communism. The fall of the republic of Vietnam is one greatest tragedies in modern history. It reminds us that freedom is not free. It reminds us that we are blessed to live in the greatest country in the world. So today I invite all of my colleagues to join me and stand with the Vietnamese community in Orange County and across the country during Black April. Thank you. I yield back.
