You are Beautiful
Written by Mrs. Dith Savy
“Beautiful! So beautiful!” Many advertisements make use of beautiful star models and famous actors and actresses to promote their products. A young man hanging out at a modern shopping mall is stunned by the alluring smile of a woman, and exclaims spontaneously, “So beautiful! What beauty!” These responses raise the question, “What is beauty? Where does beauty lie – in the face, the body shape, the character and behavior, or in commitment of a person?” Answers will vary according to each person’s perspective.
“You are beautiful” is about a Khmer woman whose identity once was tied only to the home, but became a woman of firm strength and determination and a wonderful leader of the family. Not only that, she was able to walk out of a life of pain and dark sorrows into the light of hope, which is not what happens to everyone. This book will also show how this woman of the ‘weaker’ sex, did not become soft and fall apart because of her life circumstances, but instead became strong and wise without being hard and stubborn.
