Have you ever been to a landmine museum? Neither have I, but two friends just returned from incredibly beautiful country of Cambodia, which is still feeling the effects of horrific periods of war and unrest. And one can still find live landmines–there are millions of them in Cambodia, many of those landmines being “found” by current amputees. Which leads to the story of the Cambodia Landmine Museum, founded by a man named Aki Ra. His goal: “I want to make my country safe for my people.”
