Mon the 2nd Waning Moon of Visakha BE2559, May 4, AD2015 Year of the Goat
June 4, 2015 is the 66th Anniversary of Kampuchea Krom Loss (June 4, 1949 – June 4, 2015) of the day the French colonialists transferred Kampuchea Krom, land size 68,965 square kilometers (equivalent 26,628 square miles), to colonial Vietnam to continue colonizing to the present time and it is the day that the Khmers suffered the most in our history.
To remember this historic great loss and to pay our gratitude (honor) to our heroic Buddhist monks and heroes, who sacrificed their lives in this noble cause of defending the Khmer race to this present day, the Khmer Kampuchea Krom Community has observed (marked) June 4th annually as the Saddest Day of Khmer Nation and organizing a Memorial Service by inviting 1,949 Buddhist monks to pray, chant, and emanate the merits to honor the fallen Buddhist monks, heroes, and compatriots, who defended the Nation, Religion and Kampuchea Krom with their lives fearlessly.
This year, like any other years, the Khmer Kampuchea Krom Community in Kingdom of Cambodia and abroad have unanimously decided to observe the 66th Annual Memorial Service by holding the ceremony in Phnom Penh with the eminent presence of 1,949 Buddhist Monks and anticipating thousand people to attend. Organizing expenses from previous years come from our members, compatriots, donors, and especially the members, compatriots and donors from abroad. With your generous contributions, this event becomes successful and visible annually.
As Organizing Committee Chair, I wish to appeal to members of the Khmer Kampuchea Krom Community and our compatriots to make your charitable contributions to help cover the cost of holding the historic event like years past.
This appeal is also a request for your honor presence to the venerable Buddhist monks, members, compatriots, and the public.
Your attendance and contributions will help serve the interest of the Khmer people and motherland Kampuchea Krom by honoring and paying our gratitude to the heroic Buddhist monks and heroes.
The Organizing Committee and I wish to express our profound appreciations in advance for your patriotism in giving and supporting this landmark memorial service.
Memorial Service commences on June 4, 2015 from 7:30AM – 11:00AM at Freedom Park, Phnom Penh, auspiciously presides by His Majesty The King of Cambodia Norodom Sihamoni’s Highest Royal Representative.
May You, The Most Venerable Buddhist Monks, Venerable Buddhist monks, members, and lay-persons achieve the 4 blessings of the Lord Buddha: Longevity, Brightness, Healthiness and Strength in eternity.
Former Senator of Cambodia
