Dith Pran Remembered

And then I am able, with my bare hands, to rearrange the skulls and bones so that they are not scattered about.

“I see … a pile of skulls and bones. For the first time since my arrival, what I see before me is too painful, and I break down completely. These are my relatives, friends and neighbors, I keep thinking … It is a long time before I am calm again. And then I am able, with my bare hands, to rearrange the skulls and bones so that they are not scattered about.” – Dith Pran
