I Escaped from My Country

  • Published on Jan 20, 2019
  • It took 4 months for her to escape her country. She had to hide her identity and work on a farm in a country where she didn't speak the language so she could save up and get to a safer place. She had to leave her parents behind unsure if she'd ever see them again. In the end, she fought and survived her journey successfully bringing back one of her parents and now waiting to see her mom again.

    Here is a sad story:
    This citizen in North Korea fell in a hole in the forest, and got arrested for "disturbing nature." They forced him to leave his wife and son. Then they put him on a split reactor and exploded him to death. That is how cruel North Korea is.

    What a beautiful story I hope God gives a happier life with your mother and hope that north Korea understands what people think about their own country and the God as a failure (in their country)and I am happy to see you as a educated and hope that your father is happy of what you have done was the bravest thing I have ever seen or ever heard and if he had caught you he or they will get bad luck

    This story shows how lucky we are that we aren’t born in North Korea... In our country, we have human right and especially a freedom! We can do whatever we want but not those works that can kill and hurt the other peoples... May I ask, Can the President of the North Korea change? I’m not asking a bad question because compare to our country, every like 6 years the president in the country would be changed.... People in the country votes their favorite president to present their country..That is FREEDOM because we can do whatever we want and choose whatever we like...

    This is clearly fake. While this could easily have been written and then narrated by someone else, the storyteller completely lacks a korean accent. Also, while I don’t know much about North Korea, every word spoken inside is recorded. She would’ve been arrested quickly for these questions. Also, talking about a plan to escape would also be listened in to. She’d be punished extremely quickly. Not to mention the fact that North Korea doesn’t take punishment lightly. It’s extremely unlikely that her family would be let off the hook like this.
    This is still an inspiring story nonetheless, I just don’t believe it’s true.

      Firstly, 'Hope' wasn't the voice in this story. This story is voiced by Mithril. Secondly, it is unlikely that she would be punished because she did not reveal her identity. Thirdly, her parents would unlikely be punished because for the similar reason of lack of identity.

      Nevertheless, it's your opinion. I have no power of control over your opinion.
