Yesterday, North Korea bombed South Korea’s Yeonpyeong Island, killing two soldiers. The clip shows the site at the time of bombing. Here is an English article from the Times, with video footage. This is a serious threat to the two Koreas, especially after North Korea expressed that it is going ahead with its very illegal nuclear program.
When does this stop? How is it that a land that is smaller than a province in Canada can have so much grief and tension? Will my grandparents have to live through not one, but two civil wars in their lifetime?
I’ll write more when I gather my thoughts. But right now, all I can think about is my family and the residents of Yeonpyeong as well as the other Koreans, who can only wait helplessly in this extremely uncertain state of tension.
