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.

    At my school, sharing food is forbidden. I didn't know you could get arrested though.

    Seeing how NKoreans live & try to escape makes me wish I was friends with them. NKoreans are learning that what they have is good & what we have is bad but in reality,staying there is a life or death situation. I'm glad that this girl say the truth and escaped,one day NKorea with have someone who will change how NKorea is & make it a better place for people to live

      Dumb 1234 things aren’t what they used to be but the evolution behind it predates all this combined

      The heart of it all lies in the federal reserve

      On December 13, 1913 President Woodrow Wilson signed the federal reserve act into law in 1919 he regretted it with the following words

      I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men."

      Dumb 1234 you really think it’s the best that it can never be competed with other countries

      Even though America has the federal reserve and altogether big government and with that combination America is a joke

      While it’s a success of limited government in Canada

      And many are coming in refugees style from America to Canada

    you lived in north korea.
    you wanted to go to south korea
    but instead

    you went to china. (aka the worst country)

    you went to china to *go* to south korea when you were already lived in north korea.

    anyway, if china was considered "he- heck" then why does china control north korea? bruh?
    north korea is controlled by china. and china is heck by the laws of north korea? I mean at least south korea is normal.
