Author's introduction to Leaving it Behind by John W. McCoy

Several years ago, I was on an assignment in Vietnam for one of the Donor organizations looking at the transition of the economy and banking system. As I traveled around the country, I spoke with many people about their lives today and the struggles they had had coming out of the Vietnam War. I became intrigued with the lives of the people, their honesty and acceptance of the past. "Things happened for a reason," they would tell me. "Today we must accept what happened and get on with living."
The courage I found with the Vietnamese, both in the north and in the south, pointed me in a direction of creating a story about these proud people. They have had struggles, but they face each day with new hopes. This book is fiction. The characters are based on a multitude of characters in real life. The Vietnamese people that I met with frequently were open with the stories of the past and they were able to relate the events of the past emanating from the war days with the present. Their stories captured my imagination as I sat up at night letting the fingers do the writing.
This book became an extension of my life as I lived and worked with the people. As they told me their stories, I felt closeness seldom found in other cultures.
Leaving it Behind is fiction but the situations created in this book can apply to each of us.
