North Korea Freedom Week

RTEmagicC_China_NKentrytoembassy North Korea Freedom Week began yesterday. If you're in the Washington, D.C., area, there are many activities -- prayer vigils, rallies, film screenings, information sessions, and more -- in which you can participate. If not, you can still help spread the word about human rights violations in North Korea, and pray for the oppressed. You can also read this op-ed about why President Obama should make human rights issues a priority when dealing with the North Korean government.

Later this week I'll review the Korean film The Crossing, described by the Wall Street Journal as "a 'Schindler's List' for North Korea." Special thanks to Dr. Katy Oh Hassig for the information about North Korea Freedom Week and also for lending me her copy of the film.

I wonder how Chuck Colson, Korean War veteran via the Marine Corps, feels about this personally. My father, a WWII veteran, struggled with fighting the Japanese only to watch them rebuild into an economic powerhouse that competed with the USA. Vietnam vets I know have expressed feelings of frustration that they couldn't successfully complete the job they were sent to do. North Korea's actions seem to be, in a sense, the unfinished business of America.

Not that I'd expect Chuck to actually express his feelings in a forum like this, since his expressions are held by many to be the de facto policy of PFM. (I cut him more slack than that, by far, but many don't.) But I do pray for him whenever I see the subject of North Korea come up in the news; it must be difficult.
