His Excellency Chum Bun Rong: Cambodian Ambassador on His Own and His Nation's Survival
By all accounts, His Excellency Chum Bun Rong, Cambodia’s ambassador to the United States and Mexico, should have died decades ago.  He was constantly in hiding or on the run for most of the 1975-1979 rule of the Khmer Rouge but somehow managed to barely escape with his life.  His country is still recovering from that awful four-year reign of terror as well, but Ambassador Rong is here to tell us the solid strides forward in governance,economics, education, and human rights which Cambodia is making today.—Original airdate: 4/7/2016
