This is a deserving repost from the blog entry on Aug 17, 2018. The Vimeo video quality is poor, so fast forward when the audio weakens. Madame Nhu (1924-2011), wife of the brother of the President of South Vietnam, speaks at Fordham University in New York City in 1965. A devout Catholic, Nhu spoke Vietnamese, French, and English. She was an educated, beautiful, and strong woman. She has the assistance of her daughter during the speech. She answers a question about her use of the word, “barbeque,” regarding Buddhist monks immolating themselves in protest on the streets of Saigon. By bestowing on her the name, “Dragon Lady,” the American press grievously wronged Nhu. She died in Paris. View at: https://vimeo.com/21726173

She was a great woman and a brave Christian soldier! This beautiful lady was among the amazing Catholic heroines and lionesses of the good fight like Joan of Arc, Isabelle of Castile or my Empress Dowager Maria Theresia, "the only man in the Austrian government", as her foe and counterpart Frederick the Great of Prussia called her.

Joe: if you look at the blog entry Aug 17, 2018, you will see another story from Vietnam and read about a lion. Bobby
