Middle child has been in Seoul, South Korea now for six months and has certainly seen quite a lot. Her latest trip took her to the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), often referred to as the “most dangerous border” in the world. During the tour of the DMZ, one of the speakers they had the opportunity to listen to, was a young lady of just 19 years, who had just recently defected from North Korea. As she spoke, there were many tears, not only flowing from the young lady, but also middle child. Even though North Koreans are generally happy since they don’t know what is outside of their borders, their life is very hard compared to the Western World. As middle child listened to this young lady, it made her appreciate her life even more.
