Determination is the story of Makna Men and his family. It’s a tale shared by many people who lived in fairly poor conditions long before they walked through killing fields and lived in refugee... More > camps, ending up in New England. But it is more than that. It’s the story of a young man who takes advantage of public education in the United States, goes on to college where he earns two Master’s degrees and provides for his family by teaching, advising and serving as a role model for countless young people in high schools and colleges in and around Fall River, MA. It is also a story that ends with the loss of his son, Makthra, in a tragic car accident. Thanks to supportive friends and family and a deep belief in the way of the Buddha, it ends with hope – and with a call to action to help provide water, a gift of life, to the people of Cambodia.< Less

Unkept Promises: The Unpunished Crime of Genocide By Dagmar Vermeer
eBook (PDF): $2.50
(2 Ratings)
Civilians of many backgrounds, classes and ideologies have fallen victim to the crime of genocide: Jews, Muslims, Christians, Blacks, Whites, rich, poor, educated and illiterate etc. It is a crime... More > that breaks through all barriers; ironically, it itself is not prejudice in who it targets. Transcending time, from the days of the crusaders to modern times we have witnessed this crime that remained nameless for so long. In modern times of international cooperation and the pledge for tolerance of all peoples, genocide still plays an active role. The words “never again” have been used on various occasions: amongst which, after the Holocaust, after Rwanda and after Srebrenica. These words however, have remained hollow promises. The lessons and promises after the Holocaust did not help the people of Cambodia; subsequently their legacy did not help those of Rwanda; as theirs is not helping Darfur and so on.< Less
