    Having worked on this book with Ben, It has been a pleasure to see such commitment from such a young man! He truly cares about those around him and for those whose voice is not being heard! May this help to end the atrocities that are happening not only in Cambodia, but worldwide!

    So impressed with this young boy's passion for helping others less fortunate than himself. To understand and work for human rights issues at his age is amazing. I have read the book and hope that many others will, too. Teaching children compassion and service to others at an early age can only imrpove our world! Kudos to his parents for raising such a wonderful boy.
