I NOTICED THE ABSENCE OF A GENERATION. THERE WAS A ABUNDANCE OF CHILDREN, BABY-SITTING GRANDMA'S, DRUNKEN GRANDPA'S AND MIDDLE AGED PEOPLE GOING ABOUT THEIR WORK, BUT NOT A SOUL TO BE SEEN OF A LATE-TEEN NOR 20-SOMETHING. IT BECOME APPARENT THAT THE MODERN DYNAMIC OF THE BLACK HMONG IS COMPLEX AND THREATENED.
