Its so hard not to get bogged down in all the negativity going on in the world, with wars in the Middle East escalating and terror spreading both at home and abroad its difficult to not feel a little disheartened. And I’ve been feeling it. But then yesterday I was flipping through the news sites and I saw it, something simple, something so simple that signified something so much greater. A handshake that could change a world.
The leaders of South and North Korea, two countries who have been at war for almost 70 years have met to begin the slow process towards peace, in the Korean Peninsula.
The two leaders have agreed to begin work that will rid both nations of nuclear weapons, this announcement was made by the North North Korea’s Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in President of South Korea after holding talks at the North South border.
The two leaders also agreed to move forwards in turning the armistice that ended the hostilities of Korean War in 1953 into a peace treaty this year.
Whilst details of the plan have not been made public, the fact that these meetings are taking place is a major thing, and I view it as a piece of good world.
