Topic - Phong Yang
When Phong Yang, a Hmong refugee from Laos, landed in California's Central Valley _ via stops in Thailand and France _ he was 14 years old. He learned to speak Hmong from his parents, but today he has a hard time teaching the language to his children, who are distracted by cell phones and computers.
