Dith Pran

I heard today that Dith Pran is gravely ill with stage four pancreatic cancer. This news is so sad for me because I saw The Killing Fields years ago, and it affected me deeply. It was for me one of those movies that I have never forgotten. It is a portrait of deep friendship, unequaled bravery, and irrepressible human spirit. It made me know that there is nothing more important than fighting for what is right, and for what one knows to be true, and that is why I am posting this here. I am thinking about Dith Pran today, and all of those who love him.
