A very young population; visit the Killing Fields to understand (3/15)

About half of Cambodia’s people are under age 15, and nearly no one is over age 50.  In the 1970s, about one third of the population was killed under the Khmer Rouge regime.  Babies killed during that time would now be over 40 years old.  It is a dark history, but visit the Killing Fields near Phnom Penh to feel the emotion yourself.
