Hi everyone!

Thanks so much for your message! Janice and I are Okay and sorry for not responding earlier as I went to province and I couldn't access to internet, I am so sad when I got sms from a friend to tell that many people died and many people more are staying at the hospital. It is such an unbelievable stampede which could killed many people like this!

Best Regards,
Sarvina

I am so sorry Sarvina for my tardy response. The weekend just ended up being a little hectic. How about talking via Skype either this Friday 8 am East coast US time or Sunday 8 am East Coast US time. Would either time work for you?

I can't wait to hear how your writing is going.

Take Care,

Monica

So happy you are safe

Dear Sarvina, So so sorry to hear about the loy krathom tragedy. Such sorrow that what is usually a joyous festival became a nightmare. Many thanks to all our VOF sisters who posted concerning your safety and well being. It was a joy to see your "I am safe" message.

Sarvina's picture

Thank you!

Dear Potter,

Many thanks for your comment! It is such a bad sorrow and tragedy for Cambodia that no one has ever imagined it's happened so bad like this. Of course it became a nightmare! Yeah I am so happy and excited to see them care me but I was wrong as I went to province without telling them. Really thanks to everyone in PulseWire!!!

So glad you are safe and well

Lovely to hear from you. You did nothing wrong going to the provinces! I hope you had a pleasant journey. I was so pleased to see your World Pulse family gather around you with love and concern. What an amazing network we have created. To all your World Pulse sisters this incident was not about a faceless crowd, but about our own Sarvina, personal, individual and real. I'm sure you will reach out to your community with love and reassurance. There will be a lot of healing to do in Phnom Phen. I found out that my frend there, Darith and his family, are also well. Did anyone ever discover what made the crowd panic like that?

Sarvina's picture

Thank you!

Yeah glad to hear that your friends are safe also. Of course I had a wonderful time in the province and I was so excited and happy to see I am surrounded by many sisters on PulseWire. This platform is so fantastic and amazing! No one has ever discovered this crowd panic yet as they are still investigating this tragedy. Sorry for not responding earlier! Hope you have a nice days ahead!

Thanks & Regards,
