Changing Cambodia / Year 2

“There are so many thieves in Cambodia. Trees have been cutting down by the human. People aren’t showing their integrity to the world. They do not study hard for their education, and don’t use the creative thing that they have to change the country”.

Those ideas pop in my mind since before Chinese new year. Before Chinese new year, I thought about change agent in Cambodia, and I had an idea about the six core values in Liger. I spoke with myself that, if I used those six core values to change Cambodia it might help to change Cambodia a lot. Those six core values are Integrity, Ingenuity, Determination, Optimism, Stewardship, and appreciation.

Integrity is part of the six core values. Most of the people in Cambodia aren’t showing their integrity even boys or girl, men or women, and old or young.  It happens to everywhere around Cambodia such as school, market, and in the community. Why? Because in the school students are cheating when there’s a test or a dictation. In the market sellers aren’t sell the number of people buy, the seller always drops the number of people buy, and sell the low qualities to people. Also within the neighborhood that lives close to each other, and always cheat on the land, and don’t to the integrity of the actual land that they have. Moreover in the community people always lose their money, pets, and more stuff. Why? Because there are some thieves that steal people’s things. They don’t own they own money from their energy or from efforts. If this action still continues doing, Cambodia won’t have any change because some people work hard, but some people just stole thing that people work hard for.

Second is Ingenuity. A lot of people don’t use their ingenuity or their creative way to create a good product for the country. For instance, people don’t use what they have to create something useful such as water bottle, plastic bags, and other more plastic. They always collect those things to burn it. They don’t even know a lot about what they can create out of that thing. For the good thing for those bottle or plastic bags can turn to many useful things such as boats from the plastic water bottle, pencil case, umbrella, and more useful things to create. If they think that they can turn those things into something useful for them, they don’t have to spend a lot of money, and we spend some of the income to change or develop Cambodia.

A third is a Determination. As you can see people are cheating on their learning. They don’t even know what would the result going to be. They don’t put a lot of effort into studying, but they put more effort into gambling. Why I said that? As my real experience during every school break. Most of the student in my village always playing a card and stole money to play. For the study, they just gave money to the teacher to bribe the teacher for a high score. I used to tell them a few time to, that if you still bribe the teacher for the high score, what about when you take a test at other schools, what the result would be. Even though I told them a few time they don’t really listen and they still continue the action. So for this paragraph,  I want all of the Cambodian studies to put more effort for their learning, and I try the best to reach the future, even though when you always bribe teacher for the high score, so your future would be dark, and no one wants to work for their company.

Fourth is Optimism, most people in Cambodia don’t have a really good thinking, because when they are sad, they don’t do some good thing and have fun with their friends, they just stay in the room even their family called them for a breakfast, lunch, or dinner. They don’t even know how worse it is when they just stay in the room without eating anything and seeing the green of nature. So in this text, I want people to change their habit of hiding them self when they are sad to go and play with their friends and have fun with each other.

Fifth is Stewardship, people keep their house messy, keep their staff uncarefully, and always through the plastic by the road, and don’t clean the environment where they have been going. They don’t really think about the environment of Cambodia at all. They don’t even think what would happen if the environment is don’t clean. The main thing is that Cambodia would decrease tourist, the environment is increasing, and Cambodia would get less money for developing Cambodia economy. So this text shows people and encourages people to keep the environment clean, and when we go somewhere, and when we leave that place we should clean it, and make more beautiful and we first come.

Finally is Appreciation, high study student does not appreciate the low study student Cambodia. They never encourage the low study student to try to study harder and harder. For rich people mostly they looking down to poor people, they don’t even appreciate what poor people and rich people only know about the modern staff and without looking outside the world.

To summarize that six reasons and that people should take the six core value for their life such as Integrity, Ingenuity, Stewardship, Appreciation, Optimism, and Determination. If people just respect one of this core value, we can change our country, and develop our country easily.
