A River of Darkness

I just finished the book ” A River of Darkness” by Masaji Ishikawa. It was gripping and horrifying. Feelings of rage, sadness and gratitude throughout learning about Ishikawa’s life in North Korea. No one deserves this suffering and it has never been clearer to me that we should be kind and welcoming to others who escape these inhumane conditions. The priority should always be human life and well being. Everyday you have a chance to reduce the amount of suffering in the world. You can do this for others and yourself and it doesn’t take much. Smile, compliment someone, or just listen to a person you care about. Do something. Remember this

“The smallest of action is better than the greatest of intentions.”
