I was a medic in a group where we involved in a war with Vietnam. The Viet Cong killed our friends, so the captain of my team burned Vietnamese’s houses in a village. We threw the grenade in the cave, but then we saw a boy in it. Our captain told us “Kill Him” just because he saw the boy wear a VietCong military shirt and assumed that he’s one of the soldiers. I felt really bad seeing those kill, therefore I told myself that I have to do something to pay back. I planned to help children in Vietnam, but I think Vietnam didn’t really have struggle with it.

When the Khmer Rouge took control over Cambodia, the worst and the sadness has come. They took me away from my family. My brother and sister had been taken to different places and I didn’t even know where my parents were taken to. They took me to work in the field, seeing people get killed, and die because of the sickness that they didn’t get to eat. I didn’t think I will survive because of the action that khmer rouge did to us. Luckily, the Vietnamese army had come to help us and save everyone from the Khmer Rouge. I came back to my home and I thought that my family members already gone but they had returned back with the smile and at the same time with the sadness because of the tears that drop down when we see all of the members of our family.
