Why we need to learn? Why we have to learn more and more? Why we need to read?
These are questions that people around me asked me about because they saw me read, read and read every minute I am home or free time from my works. One thing that they were really surprised because they rarely to see me read Khmer news. Why?
To answer to this question, I asked them back. ” Do you believe in Khmer newspaper? How many percent that you believe in them and their writing?”. Honestly, I cannot find any Khmer newspaper which really faire writing and faire judgment at all. My English is not so good, so the first choice that I always read is Vietnamese Newspaper, I would love to read in Thai language too but I didn’t know any words of it, so Vietnamese newspaper is my first choice.
They also asked me, why Vietnamese? Don’t you hate them?
To be honest, we’re human kinds, we don’t have to hate each other unless we’ve done wrong. I read Vietnamese newspaper because I want to know what are they saying or writing about our country, our people, our economic and everything.
TO UNDERSTAND OTHER PEOPLE OR OUR NEIGHBORS, WE NEED TO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING OR SAYING ABOUT US AND TO DO SO, WE NEED TO KNOW THEIR LANGUAGES.
So, people, please do not judge people on what they’re doing, but judge them based on what they’ve brought or result that they’ve made.
