Help the World

This section came from The Significato Journal, which was a joint effort between my husband, Peter, and me. The content is too good to abandon, so we've brought it over to my website. I may or may not update it. We'll see!

It highlights issues that need to be resolved and projects that need help.

North Korea, The Prison Nation
Book Recommendation: Eyes of the Tailless Animals, by Soon Ok Lee Published in 1999 by Living Sacrifice Book Company, Bartlesville, OK
There is no talking, no singing, no laughing and often prisoners are forced to stay in one physical position for many hours at a time without relief. Besides that they suffer with filthy blankets, tiny rations of only corn with salty soup to eat, filthy clothing, filthy sewage conditions, no heat in the winter, blistering heat in the summer and nineteen hour work days as a slave labor force in government owned factories. more
