After the Khmer Rouge victory in 1975, every Cambodian who was under the regime was forced to work, eat, sleep, and live according to their rules. No one was able to protest or rise up against the policies due to severe punishment or death.

It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it’s something rather wonderful.

It hasn’t happened lately, and I think perhaps that’s because I’ve thought about it a little too much; it’s not a thing to think about, it’s a thing to allow to happen, and to be grateful for when it does.
