Thailand is going through a tough period right now as King Bhumibol Adulyadej has passed away after 70 great years on the throne. I'm proud to live in the Kingdom of Thailand and to have been here during King Bhumibol's reign. His Majesty was a wonderful example to me and the Thai people. He will live in our hearts forever.
We love our King because he dedicated his life to his people. His Majesty initiated thousands of development projects that were aimed at improving the living conditions of his people. These Royal Development Projects targeted different sectors of the economy including agriculture, the environment, public health, occupational promotion, water resources, communications, public welfare, and more. King Bhumibol traveled around Thailand in order to meet his people and implement these projects for the betterment of the country. This is why Thais love their King so much and view him as a father figure or as the "Father of the Country."
