Good morning, and welcome to “Around the World, Here at Home."  I’m Jennifer Davidson.  In today’s segment, we’ll hear the story of an Ozarks woman who once called the southeast country of Laos home.  Her life as a teenager was turned upside down when war from neighboring Vietnam bled into her country, and into her family. Today, Sang Bealer owns a Thai restaurant on historic Walnut Street in downtown Springfield:  Bangkok City. This is her story.
