I recently read an article about Moon Sung Lim, a North Korean who was arrested four times by China's police when she was attempting her escape from North Korea. Her family who attempted to escape with her either lost their lives or are nowhere to be found, and Moon also almost lost her life. However Moon did not give up and she finally escaped North Korea in 2002. Even right now there are countless people attempting escape from North Korea just like Moon Sung Lim. It is truly tragic to think how bad a country can be if its own people want to escape it. But North Korea is only focused on stopping these escapees rather than actually providing the means for these people to stay and survive. Does North Korea not know why these people are escaping in the first place?
