Cambodian Service Learning - Choeung Ek Killing Fields
After the bodies were excavated, numerous monstrous holes were left in the ground. Over time, grass covered the surfaces. But the holes are still there.
A commemorative stupa had been built to hold some of the skulls and clothing. It was hard, but I forced myself to stare at the skulls - to remind myself of the depth of hatred, cruelty, and depravity that we humans are capable of.
