The Unthinkable

This time I am quoting from an update posted on one of the petitions that I have been encouraging everyone to sign.  Refer back to my earlier post if you don't know what's going on with North Korea and China.

*                  *                  *

The news [is] reporting that China has repatriated the 30 Refugees. 
It seems China has done fear that if this issue get[s] more attention, it will have to face with harsher consequences.
In other words, they want to silence us.

However... we will continue to Cry Out for the thirty who are, as we speak, most likely being tortured.
We will cry out because that is the only thing we can do.
We will continue to be voice for the other several hundred North Koreans in China who are in prison waiting to be deported.
We will continue to raise awareness for the several tens of thousands of North Koreans who have escaped to China in search for food and freedom. Dear China, Please help us save our friends..

Friends of the Thirty One.. Continue your plea and hollering through all mediums so that something like this never happens again...

*                  *                  *

It's interesting to me how little response this plea has gotten.  I don't know if it's because of other things being on people's minds or if it can be attributed to the lack of gain for America to intercede.  No one has called for America to arm up and march into North Korea and China.  The call has simply been for an outcry from the world, yet the world has remained silent.  We face quite the quandary: Should we speak out and risk upsetting China, America's financial backer?  Or should we stay quiet and try to ignore the fact that people are dying for trying to get a better life?

I think this goes to show a lot about debt.  While you have it, you are a slave to the whims of those to whom you are indebted.  I can only offer one solution in moving forward: we must cut our spending as a nation.  We must fight for our freedom so that we won't have to be scared to speak out on behalf of what is right.

Ladies and gentlemen, I ask you: If you had had the opportunity to save your son, daughter, mother, father, brother, sister from torture and death, would you have taken it?

We are all connected in this world, and it's time we started realizing it.

***Sign the petition (and this one too!) to save refugees from North Korea!***
