We are reluctant to leave Cambodia. Our time here was relaxing to be sure, thanks to our Mekong cruise and a comfortable stay in Siem Reap. We were able to see the Cambodian people at work, at play, in meditation, and in many unguarded moments of everyday life. When I reflect on the pain the population has suffered in recent times, I think, perhaps more than other countries we have visited, Cambodia must look to the future. The struggle is to create a future that will bring education and opportunity to Cambodia's children, for at present, they are the most disadvantaged even as they are the country's future.
"I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
"Show them all the beauty they possess inside
"Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
"Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be"
