Letter: Proud, not obsessed

Dear Editor,

I would like to comment on C. Rabour's letter [Phnom Penh Post, 8/20-9/2/99] that

we are obsessed with our past. We are not obsessed with our past, but proud of our

heritage. If you look at Cambodia and see the horrors we have gone thru in the last

30 years, you can see vividly that we as Khmer will always have the love of our heritage,

from the onslaught of Thailand in the latter half of the 12th century to the killing

fields. We Khmer still love and respect the motherland. You can see in America that

no matter where you go to any Khmer house there are always people like me telling

our family about our past. This does not mean that we are obsessed, but proud of

being Khmer. Mr. C. Rabour, if you were Khmer, then you would know what to be "Khmer"
