Reward for courage

Dear Editor,

The world will never forget the events of March 1997 that almost took Pov Sinoun's


She is a courageous girl indeed.

The Buddha teaches us not to kill.

In the last decade of this century we have witnessed the death of strongmen Nicholae

Ceaucescue of Romania, Ferdinand Marcos of the Philippines and of course Pol Pot

of Democratic Kampuchea.

The events of March 1997 and others under the Pol Pot regime burned us as Cambodians

pretty good.

We can't rebuild Angkor Wat. But I had a dream that we can make Cambodia a tourist

Mecca, prosperous and glorious like the Angkorean era without destroying the country

by selling trees and other natural resources or bringing in factories that pollute

our air and water.

We are the sons and daughters of the Khmer empire. So every Cambodian, especially

the leaders, should not sell themselves low and cheap but think and act accordingly.

So Sinoun keep up the good work and please accept my $50 gift.

With love from the USA.
