Innocent North Korean refugees, some of which are our friends and family, are at risk of execution if repatriated to North Korea on February 20th.
This case is important because it is the first arrest of North Korean refugees in China after Kim Jung-il’s death. Kim Jung-un, the son of Kim Jung-il and NK’s current leader, declared that refugees who flee North Korea during the 100-day mourning period of his father’s death would be annihilated along with their families. 30 have been caught, but many more lives are at risk — North Koreans that are caught trying to defect are faced with the cruelest death sentence, often preceded by a long process of torture or excruciating labor. This is because the North Korean government perceives defectors as the number one threat to their authority.
If the international community, especially China, doesn’t take a strong stance on saving North Korean refugees once and for all, they are guilty of supporting the death of thousands of innocent lives.China has the power and opportunity to rewrite history and stop one of the greatest atrocities of our time — on behalf of our friends and family, we plea, please help #SaveMyFriend!

She was fond of the most unnecessary things, yet had a feel of a caring friend, She had undying curiosity of all that was unanswered, and had a knack for doing the right thing, She showed me the positive side to this world, she made me feel truly.. Um… “Loved”
And I must say.. As cliché as it sounds, this special girl changed my life… I called her..
Did you know that one of the greatest mass extinctions of all time is occurring right now? And, that it is mostly human caused? Scientists have speculated about this for many years but, now it seems the bitter puzzle pieces are finally coming together.
I say I hate humanity. That we’re all evil, stupid fucks that don’t know how to behave. That if we all died tomorrow, I wouldn’t shed a tear. That’s a complete and utter lie. I love people. I love our ability to love. I love what we do to keep one another safe. I love how we fight for each…
For all the times you’d rather be alone, I think there are more where you need someone next to you. Even if you don’t realize you need it. Not their words, or their touch. Not even a look. Just their presence.
That weight ties you to something, brings you back, keeps you human.
