North Korea

The situation in North Korea breaks my heart.

The thing I hate most is when a mind isn't allowed to expand and express.
I know how it feels to be suppressed and to have no rights to have an opinion about certain things so maybe thats why I'm connecting to these stories so much.

If I had the chance, I would help them.
Hopefully, somewhere in the future plan for my life I will get that oppurtunity.

I'll be ready, I'm learning Korean for them.

North Korea... you will be free...

Life Trials

What is drama?

Now we all as human kind have trials, but why are we put through such harsh circumstances? What is the result? Do we become better people because of it? Or on the contrary, we become the opposition the world desires?

Is it merely karma? A belief in which if you yourself bring on sadness to others, will have sadness brought upon you in thay same amount or more?

Or does the world follow the more delicate balance of the yin-yang system? Without light there is no darkness, and without sadness there is no way to attain lightness of life.

Maybe it's God. Depending on the sort of figure you believe in, is he taunting us? Bellowing on his throne of heaven because we are merely survive the blunders he lays upon us? Or is he kind and merciful; with a giving heart? The one who tests us for our worthiness and promises eternal life for those who suffer and yet still believe.

Isn't it interesting how each culture finds different way towards dealing with this in-controllable aspect. Are any of them right? Are any of them wrong? As a society we must fight against those who are different than us, and at what price? We are all just human beings, surviving, hoping, dealing with things we cannot understand in the only ways we know how.

I wish I had all the answers. I wish I had the assurance to know that'll everything will turn out right in the end. That no matter how much suffering there is, there will always be redemption. I think thats up for every individual to decide. What do you believe? If you do not stand for something, you cannot stand for anything. (Quote by some man I do not remember at this moment)
