Joseph Kim escaping from North Korea, you can google him.

He was at a local bookstore last night, gave a talk and had a book signing, so I dragged the family down to see him.

Born in 1990, went thru the Great Famine in 1995, saw his father die later from starvation when his father would make sure his kids ate first, his mother sold his sister to someone in China, she felt it was a better life for his sister anyhow, then his mother is captured and sent to NK prison, hasn't seen either since.

Homeless in NK is pretty much a death sentence, so he crossed the border in broad daylight since he figured he would die anyhow, and the guards may not even be looking at that time, made it to China with nothing but his name, found an underground church group and was taken in by an older woman there, who would only take him in if he proclaimed his name was Joseph, so he gave up his name as well. Made it to USA and currently attends college in NYC, He's 24.

What kind of karma could this man have been involved with to go thru this kind of life? I shook his hand, I've never really met anyone famous, gurus, etc., but I am glad I met him.

Thanks for this incredible story. It only reaffirms most of our views that Kim Jong Un ( and his father ) is a cruel man who has made life a nitemare for many of his citizens and must be watched continously.
