Of ants and elephants

Dear Editor,

While elephants play golf,
Ants die from malnutrition;

While elephants declare a 'peace day',

Ants die in the battlefield;

While elephants say 'we help you, ants',

Ants die under their tramp.

Cambodians who can understand what I mean by these new versions of a Khmer saying

can understand what Raoul Jennar meant in his letter.

I appreciate the Phnom Penh Post and I just wanted to share my feelings.

I believe that peace and reconciliation are the hope for Cambodia and foreigners

should not encourage violence and conflicts.

- Tanaka Tomomichi, Phnom Penh.
