"Dith Pran was one of those few souls who was able to escape the Cambodian Genocide. He was able to shed light on not only his experience, but also the suffering of many others. He left his mark on the world by contributing to the journalism and visual recognition of the atrocities that occur in this world. He remains a true hero. May his soul rest in peace and he remain in people's hearts."
