No, this article headline was not a mistake.  You don’t have to rub your eyes and re-read.  Parents in North Korea are legitimately eating their own children.  As in cannibalism. As in this isn’t a sick joke, this is real life.

I’m pretty sure that sound I’m hearing in my ears is that of my heart breaking into a million tiny pieces.  The Daily Mail is reporting that a man in North Korea was executed yesterday for murdering his two children for food.  And apparently his story is only one that’s come out.  Word is, there are a lot more stories like this.  As a matter of fact, up to TEN THOUSAND people are feared to be dead after a “hidden famine” struck farming providences in North Korea.

While the people of North Korea are reporting to killing and eating their OWN CHILDREN because famine is so bad, their leader, Kim Jong Un has reportedly spent major amounts of money on two rocket launchers instead of spending the money on helping his own people.  United Nations officials have visited out of concern for the people of North Korea, but haven’t been shown the hardest hit places- the places where there’s nothing and where parents are so desperate that they’re eating their own children.

What do you do? How do you even begin to help these people?
