"In January of 1979, the genocide ended. Pol Pot was no longer in power, and my sister and I went to a refugee camp in Thailand. We were there for three months, and then the Catholic Church sponsored us to come to the United States. I've been here for 35 years now and worked at a uniform manufacturing company for almost 30 years, first as a seamstress and now in the shipping department. My sister is still with me, and I have one son; he was born in the United States.
"It's been a long time ago, but I still remember. I will never forget."
