Write From... History Review

After using these books for a couple of months my son was so smitten with them I confess we picked up another one from Currclick during a sale they recently had. My boy was excited to have more stories to choose from. I figure any kinda writing curriculum that can excite my reluctant writer is top notch!

Raddish Kitchen Science Box review - with a GIVEAWAY!

The Raddish Kitchen Science Box is all about bringing science into the kitchen. What’s a mom to do if cooking just isn’t her strength? How can she add cooking to her homeschool? And what about a busy mom who has little time for planning or adding kitchen time to her homeschooling, it seems such a supplemental subject to her and she never has time to add it....
Find out how Stephanie and her family have been enjoying Raddish Science Box!

Dear Sir/madam.
I deeply concern about the communist propaganda being appeared into the education, obviously, they Red flag to be imposed by some communists or innocent education officials, that provokes the victim, likely the Melbourne High with a show: miss Saigon.
Thank,

THE VIETCONG'S RED FLAG DIGS UP THE SORROW OF VIETCONG'S VICTIM.

In the old days, the pirate used the black flag and inside had the white skull being two crossing bones, the pirate flag became the most threat into the ocean, in this period, the boat, ship being obsessed when seeing the black flag. Likely the red flag is the common symbol of communist, the sign of human right abuses. The most world massacre since Karl Marx wrote his communism's theory, then Lenin applied into the society. The communist movement has spread worldwide from the so called the Revolution October 1917. The victim of communist estimates more than 100 million people killed and billion lost freedom. Despite the communist's cradle Soviet Union and the Eastern communist Bloc collapsed in decade 1990's, but the communist's threat is not over yet, there are still remaining the communist regime in China, Vietnam, North Korea, Laos and Cuba, actually the communist rebels name Maoist have presented in Nepal, Philippine, India, some nations of South America…they are the terrorists than Al Qaeda.
The most Vietnamese refugee around the world are the Vietcong's victim, they escaped from its country to find freedom and democracy. The victim really don't want to see signs linked to the communist regime, likely the Jewish hate the symbol of Nazi and Hitler picture.
The Melbourne High School creates the victim's sorrow by the red flag appears at the show title Miss Saigon. The Vietnamese people have been suffering so much sorrow throughout the history, since Ho Chi Minh imposed the communist pattern into Vietnam society: the landlord reform after 1954 at North that cost more than 200,000 lives. After Vietcong claimed the unpredicted victory, there were 800,000 member of ARVN, public servant imprisoned, the worst treat killed more than 165,000 by starvation, execution, torture, labor force, illness with medical and multiple million Vietnamese fled from its country. The wounds have never sealed, those deeply insert into the Vietnamese people mind and remain forever. There is just Ho Chi Minh, a great Vietcong leader, who brought the red flag into Vietnam, he killed 1,700,000 people, it based on the Polska, a Poland media released on May 3, 2013 about the list of 13 most massacre in 20th century.
The red flag causes bloodshed, inhumane and killing as Mr. Nguyen Ho, a high communist ranking, 56 years membership told after occupied Saigon in on April 30, 1975:" their houses we occupy-Their wives, we take and their children we enslave". The most Vietnamese overseas are the communist's victim, they want find the peacefully new life into the adopted country likely Australia, unfortunately the Vietcong espionage agent or some pro-communist ( the false refugee) plus the innocent western people, they use the red flag to provoke Vietnamese people and dig up the sorrow.
In Vietnam war's period, the innocent Western people congregated into the so-called Anti-war, pro-communist movement, they raised the protests against South Vietnam and Allies, they have misled long time public and lie propaganda, the toxic has been remaining into the western country. But they have to know after taking over South Vietnam 1975, Mr. Le Duan, General Secretary of Vietnam communist party said:" we fought against the Empire American for greats Master Soviet Union and China", recently, Vietcong set up the Le Duan's temple and his speech being at the entrance gate.
The Vietnamese overseas want to heal the mental health, but somewhere as the Melbourne High School provokes by the show Miss Saigon, that means the school tortures the mind of Vietcong's victim. In 2011, Texas University hung the red flag and they faced the strongly reaction from Vietnamese resident and outside US, I wrote letter to Texas University, and later on, Mr. Tom Gaze, vice chancellor replied and he confessed the misunderstanding, then he removed the red flag.
I believe the head master and staff of Melbourne High School recognize the deep sorrow of Vietnamese people, particularly the parent, children, they feel so hurt while seeing the red flag there. I would like your school removes the terrible flag and replace by yellow one, a symbol of freedom and democracy of Vietnamese, that has the long history since 1948.
Thank very much.
Yours faithfully.
Hoa Minh Truong.
