Time to Wake up

No one wants to live with war because of death and destruction. Cambodia also was in the hole of the problem by the war during 1975 to 1979 that was led by Pol Pot. Pol Pot came to power through people’s ignorance and destroyed Cambodia.
Pol Pot created fear. When he became the president, He used a proverb “To keep you is no benefits, to destroy you is no loss” . He punished the people in the prison by did not provide food or water and killed them by took of their nail, drilled their head, take out the heart. In addition, Pol Pot trained the children and the teenagers to kill people even their parents or their relatives. People had to work in the field from four am until ten pm everyday. In the other hand, the old people, women who got pregnant nearly too born , the women who just born the baby for seven days, and children who just four or five years old, they forced to work in the field, cut the grass and collected stool to make fertilizer without providing enough food.
The country’s economies started from number zero because after this regime people did not have money, food or houses.He destroyed all infrastructures like schools, factories, hospitals, markets, money, books and medicines.He also destroyed Cambodia's culture. He forced the people to marry for 20 to 30 pairs in the same time. He destroyed the religion. He took the pagodas and the schools as the prison to execute the people. “He ruined the status in the pagoda and in the temples. He forced the monks to marry, to be the soldier and killed people. Furthermore he forced the Muslims to eat pork.
By this we can know that during this regime, Cambodia was ruined by Pol Pot. Everything lost and left only children, widow and uneducated. The government starts to develop the country from the bottom.
Through this picture that exposed violence and creul, it makes the people captured violence, they afraid the school. they don't see the value of education because if they study they will face like this rigime so now please every one wake up and fight with this thought.
