Hi, kids. I work partly as an English editor on the Web, so here's a little help or a present for you. I have edited this post into clear, grammatical, properly spelled English. I hope I have properly understood what you intended to say!

Oops! I missed something. Here's a correction of one sentence:

She drives to school every day by car, about 15 Km from her house.

Everyday as one word means usual, ordinary, regular. Every day as two words means each day.

It is great to learn about Nareth life in Cambodia. The simplicity of life in Cambodia is so wonderful. I would like very much to visit again. The tragedy of Cambodia continues but the new hope of love has slowly emerged in many parts of the country. I hope that some day Nareth will encounter the hope and love that God has bestowed for her. Keep searching and you will find.

Brain H is very kind to ehlp refining English. However, Nareth does not drive the car to school. She rides the motobike.

Besides, "Kandal Pa" is incomplete writing. it should read "Kandal Pagoda"

Thanks Youth Vision for telling me about your hero, Nareth. I appreciate very much her efforts in struggling for a better life. Particularly, I feel impress with her noble dream to be a "peacekeeper". Nareth wish you great success! your dream comes true.

Cambodia neeeds many more Nareth to turn the Khmers spirit from 'warror' to 'peacekeeeper'. Otherwise Khmers continues fighting endlessly.
