[I don’t expect this post to get any notes, but I just want to share and give an eye opening experience to all you people out there.]

This is a completely heartbreaking short story about Yeonmi Park’s escape from North Korea. This story also briefly explains the horror of what’s going on within the borders of, what probably is, the most controlled country in the world.

It’s time to really open up our eyes and realize that the things most people take for granted is an unachievable dream for millions of people, not just in North Korea.


In India and China, baby girls are being murdered every single day by abortion or being murdered (stranglulation, poisoning, drowning) right after they are born. The only reason this is happening is because in these countries it is believed that boys bring their families wealth and honor, while girls bring their families nothing. China is infamous for forcing thousands of women a day to have forced abortions for the sole reason that they are having an illegal pregnancy.

The documentary “It’s A Girl” goes into the lives of those who are effected by the mass gendercide and extreme sexist beliefs. This movie was a major eye opener for myself and I believe it will be the same to anyone else. It’s on Netflix, so please take a moment to watch this amazing film or visit their website Thank you
