Dear Patriots:

The conditions you were subjected to inside tiger cages were hell; far beyond any imagination can fathom. My visit to replicas of these cells put up in Con Dao Island opened my eyes to an age in world history marred by heartless violence and brutal force.

And it rages on.

The world is still battling with “new wars” even if we are already in the 21st century. Border conflicts in Israel-Palestine and North-South Korea still occur. Clashes closer to home (in Thailand and in Mindanao) erupt now and then. Threats of war and terrorist attacks ignite worldwide deaths.

In an era proud of knowledge and technological advancements, the world still lacks understanding.
