Students struggling to get to school!

A black and white photo showing kids pushing a bike through a rice paddy, accompanies a poem by the Cambodian poet Keo Chanbo called Because we are poor: “Even we’re poor, still we have to try. One day we will get a better future. Hope to see success tomorrow; both teachers and parents will be proud of me.”

Soda Hem responds to the post with “Trying results in Success,” while Oeng Kang Sovann writes, “I experienced that too.” Niko Hoa compares the picture to her real life: “What I have gone through is even harder than this”, while Davy Pey responds, “I feel so much pity for them.”

Rithea Sam reflects not only on the picture but also the source that posted this to Facebook, writing, “Thanks for this photo.”

Sokhom Chap is one among others who shared this link. He mentions that seeing the photo reminds him his childhood, writing, “Remember when I was young.”

It’s true that education plays a very important role in our lives especially in making a better future. This photo encourages and motivates people to get educated, no matter how hard it is, reminding them it’s something we must struggle for.
