hello-seoulights:

whenever you hear about accidents and incidents on the news you always feel removed from it. its so commonplace, that you become almost desensitized to it. that is the sad reality of it: you feel upset for a moment but go on about your day. but these messages from the ferry incident today in korea. they reminded me to care. they gave me chills. the worry of a mother when her son is no longer responding to her messages? that could be my mother. yours. this lends a human face to tragedy. suddenly you can picture yourself on that capsizing boat, the picture of youth and terrified out of your mind. cold. tired. scared. not knowing if you would be saved. so tonight my heart is heavy. i am filled with remorse and sadness. i go to bed knowing that life is fleeting. never take it for granted because we don’t get second chances.

The president of South Korea expresses her concerns toward the situation to the families of those still missing from the Sewol Tragedy. 

At 1:10, the man says, “We have gathered up to 500 divers to help find these people.”, and the crowd erupts into angry shouts, spouting things such as, “Where are they all?”, “Don’t lie to us!”, “There weren’t any before!”, etc. etc. 

As the President was walking out of the building, families were shouting at her.

"Bring back my child!"

"Why did you even come!"

One even said, “Please bring back my child. Please release the rescuers quickly. Won’t you at least bring back the body? How cold could he/she be…”

Its a really heartbreaking news for South Korea.

South Korea has helped Malaysia by looking for MH370 for weeks. Now its time for us to help them.

This is not a reminder for Malaysians only but for all of the people all around the world. Please, it wont take time, in fact, it takes only less then five minutes to pray for south korea. Many lives have died and missing. Please pray for them as human beings.

#PrayForSouthKorea 대한민국
