i just watched the 60 minute bit on Shin Dong-hyuk and i wish it had lasted the entire 60 minutes.
Shin Dong-hyuk is the only man to have been born into a North Korean prison camp, escape, and share his story with the world after escaping a life of slave labor at the age of 23.
Last month I had the honor of meeting Mr. Shin in person at a speaking engagement, and from now on one of my goals in life is to share his story, and the issue of North Korean human rights, with as many people as possible.
There is also a master list of resources compiled by Tumblr user gedenkenbrauchtwissen relating to Mr. Shin, North Korea, human rights, and much much more.
If you haven’t already seen his 60 Minutes segment, it should be available on Youtube shortly.
Please take some time to look into this issue and spread awareness.
Who are trying to take over our beautiful fatherland.

I will shoot them. BANG, BANG, BANG. —
