The rest of the story as Paul Harvey would say which tells us just a bit more and explain a lot...
For those of you who followed my three posts regarding South Korean born Maija Rhee Devine and her latest novel 'The Voices of Heaven, here is a follow up which Maija was very kind to share.
First her interview on a Seoul TV station:
Followed by her 'A Birthday Event for Unlived Lives' (see post HERE)
"A Birthday Event for Unlived Lives" was held on 20 February 2014 in remembrance of the 30,000 female fetuses aborted in 1994 alone and in my short talk, I said that I didn't organize the event to "let those spirit of lost children rest in peace," but by remembering them, we allow the statistics to migrate from our heads down into our hearts and when we do that, their spirits might move us to take pro-active steps to push for more gender-equal legislation and public policies.
If such changes could occur because of our remembrance of those girls, their unlived lives will not have been for nothing. Their lives will have been worth something important."
Note to readers:
This particular event was held at One World Language School for Adults.
Maija Rhee Devine's Brian who opened the school in Seoul, Korea, presented a poem in memory of those remembered.
Learning every day just a little more...
Thank you Maija!
