Youtube: North Korea defectors: Why it’s getting harder to escape – BBC News

ever mind North Korea. It’s a sad situation here and now in USA and everywhere else including South Korea. I see that both nations and individuals are in the process of losing their independence and freedom. It’s happening so gradually that perhaps a lot of people are not aware of it. As a person from South Korea, it touches me so deeply to see so many kind comments below. “I wish I can rescue them all,” said one person. Comments like that makes me cry. You Americans along with many non-Koreans did, more than once. During the Korean war (1950), and before that when American missionaries came to Korea. My grandfather was one of many who obtained their salvation through them. He became a pastor and was killed by the Japanese after being tortured for preaching in his own church not to worship Shinto (all Koreans were forced to renounce their faith and worship Shinto during Japan’s invasion (1910) and occupation of Korea for 36 years). and for his involvement with Korea’s independence movement. The Japanese gave foreign missionaries the option to return to their home countries but many of them refused to leave. They were imprisoned and gave their lives for our freedom. “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.” John 15:13
