All That We Are Saying Is Give Peace A Chance

40 years ago today, Khmer Rouge forces entered and emptied Phnom Penh of its population and genocide committed by the KR began for nearly 4 years.
My parents were among those who were killed.

Violence and mistrust mark the legacy of the KR.

With the new culture of dialogue we can begin to take the steps towards ending the culture of violence and impunity.

It is hard to embark in this new path and for those who want to be cautious, it is normal. But to wait till peace happen is to deny our youth the hope for justice.

We have lived with violence for 40 years and it is time we, as a people give peace a chance.

There is no justice without peace.
