Hyeonseo Lee: My escape from North Korea
TedTalks via YouTube ^ | 20MAR2013 | Hyeonseo Lee

Posted on 03/20/2013 9:03:58 PM PDT by Jack Hydrazine

As a child growing up in North Korea, Hyeonseo Lee thought her country was "the best on the planet." It wasn't until the famine of the 90s that she began to wonder. She escaped the country at 14, to begin a life in hiding, as a refugee in China. Hers is a harrowing, personal tale of survival and hope -- and a powerful reminder of those who face constant danger, even when the border is far behind.

TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less). Look for talks on Technology, Entertainment and Design -- plus science, business, global issues, the arts and much more.

What stuns me is that liberals, most TED attendies and sponsors, cannot associate this guys experience with what their designing for America.
