This AP article is is sad tribute to an amazing person. I remember watching the Killing Fields in middle school and being totally blown away. I have always been drawn to stories of war and survivor-ship. Dith Pran’s story was an amazing journey of faith, determination and a strong will to live. As an American, well as a person on the planet, I am continually appalled at the lack of interest in what is happening in other countries around the world unless that country has something we desire.
On Easter when we visited our nations Capital, D and I pointed out the Capital building and the White House to Spawn and Chica and almost in unison they proclaim, “WELL, at least it is almost over. We will have a new President soon and that terrible Bush will be OUT of here. He sucks!”
