In Order To Live: The True Story Of A Young Girl’s Triumph Through Fear And Oppression

The story of Yeonmi Park on The Guardian is one that has caught the attention of people all over the world. The tragic and brutal nature of her home country of North Korea is well known to most of the world. However, the nature of this darkly secretive country has had more light shed into it than it’s leader’s may want to have. This is surely an act of liberation and urgency, the nature of the book is not a happy one. “I wasn’t dreaming of freedom when I escaped from North Korea. I didn’t even know what it meant to be free.” This is a excerpt from her new book. A startling reality check for any free country’s citizens to read. Coming from a place where hunger is regular and you are led to believe that your dictator can read your mind is no picnic. The mental abuse that this young woman and her family had to endure is abhorrent. Her story of trials, suffering, illnesses and finally escape are hard to read without tearing up. Picturing Young Park and her family willing to risk their lives for a mere bowl of rice is enough to break your heart. Born on October 4th 1993, Park is still quite young to have already endured so much loss and harsh realities. It is a reality most of us have never known and one that many still live out daily. Now, she is empowered and advocates victims of human trafficking, while working to promote human rights in North Korea and world wide. These harsh experiences have helped to mold Yeonmi into a powerful voice for the oppressed and impoverished. Being in her early twenties and having had all of the pressures of a life so severe has formed a solid foundation of strength for her to build upon. Truly, this is a story for the people. The people of Korea who suffer in masses and the people around the globe who are moved to help in some way. It is real stories like these that put things into perspective and one she is free to tell.
