Angkor Wat video in honor of Dith Pran
There are several scenes in the movie "The Killing Fields" that make ones stomach clench. Dished out in the end, though, is a sense that goodness does prevail. The movie, mostly about a Cambodian journalist, Dith Pran's escape from that country during the rule of the Khmer Rouge is heart-wrenching.
I read that Dith Pran died on Sunday from pancreatic cancer. He wasn't old, only 65, but what a lifetime of change he witnessed. Pran had become a photojournalist for the New York Times after his escape. He was born near Angkor Wat, so in honor of him, here is a video posted by imorgan10 on YouTube that is simply lovely. I imagine that when Pran made his treacherous journey, he never expected his homeland would become such a tourist destination.
