My Wife is from Cambodia & been here 22 years.
She saw her Dad shot to death, say her Mom starve to death in a camp. She was on the run in the Jungle for 4 months. In a death capm, she was given one tablespoon of rice for a week at a time.
Now, she is successful, works at a medical device company, bought her own house, is very industrious and is making me Walleye lunch right now.
I cherrish my Wife so much & glad she survived the Holocaust in Cambodia.
Moreover, congratualtions to your wife for being so strong.
If the killing fields was anywhere close to the horrors of what she overcame, she has my greatest respect.
A very good friend of mine crossed the border between communist China and Hong Kong when he was in his early teens. The authorities arbitrarily stopped the rest of his family from crossing but he was permitted to go alone.
In his first years in the U.S. he lived for a time in a chicken coop. He rode a bicycle about thirty miles a day to work and attend school.
I admire people who have faced such difficulties and overcome them to thrive in what is the greatest nation on earth. Our indigenous minorities should be shamed of themselves.
