My Korean Dream

This story illustrates why I dream of North Korea being freed from tyranny.
"When van Houtryve approached North Koreans, they walked off or averted their eyes. He never once photographed a smile. Even children ran away from him. “They’d turn and notice me and immediately bolt off—as if a wolf had come up to them.” Pyongyang’s somber trams are old East German models, giving the city a Soviet feel two decades after the fall of the Berlin Wall."
I traveled to South Korea in the late 1990's, both before and after the Asian currency crisis. Of all the places I've traveled, the Koreans were the most generous and genuine. That their country could be split in two via Socialist / Communist tyranny is a crime against humanity. I dream that before I die, the North can be freed and recombined with the South. As I always say, "if you are going to dream, dream big!"
