Cambodia continues

In Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia, you can go to the Killing Fields, which is where a large number of people were killed and buried during the Khmer Rouge regime. Also, there is a former school that used to be a prision where Cambodians were interrogated, tortured and murdered. From 1975 to 1979, 1.7 million people died. Visiting the sites was difficult, you can feel the pain. Really really horrible!!!

When you leave these places, there are lots of disabled people and naked children begging, some of them would sell water, bracelts and even books written by the survivors of the Khmer Rouge. I decided to buy one of the books to learn more about the history, and also to try and help. The problem is that you CAN'T really help. There is so much poverty!! There are so many people asking for money...they say "just one dollar", and yes! that's not a lot of money...but if you give one dollar to the 40 people you see in 2 hours...that's different. I felt uncomfortable, guilty, angry, frustated and annoyed at the fact that I couldn't do anything to help these people.

I wish I can be rich, so I could build a school for the children that are begging...
