Killing Fields


Email from Brian...

Hey baby. Today was our first full day of work outside Pnohm Pen. We worked in a very small church (much like Haiti). It went very well.

We had a 2 hr break before our church service. We went to the "killing fields" and the genocide memorial. It was the most erie place that I have ever been. Bones and teeth on the ground. Holes where mass graves were. Remnants of clothes still there. This just happened. 30 years ago.

Over 2 million people killed.

Baffling.

I stood on the roots of the tree where babies were smashed. I can't tell you the thoughts in my head. I had to walk away.
