RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
My personal connection to Cambodia and specifically to the auto-genocide of the Khmer people runs deep, and as a university student it has compelled me to read and to seek answers and understanding in why something like this could occur.
I have discovered that a solution, a remedy to reconcile survivor's experience cannot come in one form, it comes in many.
And I am happy to see that the first step and the most important step is listening. I look forward to hearing the stories of these brave, strong individuals and commend them for their courage to retouch and unfortunately relive in memory the torment they went through, all to enlighten others... others who have not had to go through hardship like theirs.
