Yeonmi Park’s book, “In order to Live” is one of the most highly rated books to read. Millions of people have read her book and they are horrified about what has happened to her. At the same time, they are inspired at what she has done with her experiences. Many of the readers have heard of Yeonmi Park at the One Young World Summit. Her book does more than takes the One Young World Summit speech and expands on it. It explores Yeonmi Park life in exhaustive detail. It also does it in an unflinching way. It doesn’t do anything to emotionalize anything about her life. It also doesn’t try to paint anyone in a good or bad light either.
Yeonmi Park of course probably had to take her time to write the book due to having to relive the experience. At the same time, she has probably gained a lot of insight during the writing of her book. Given all that she has went through, she is not callous. Even though she is forever scarred and haunted by her experiences, she has shown that she has learned how to use her experience for something productive. Writing the book is one of the steps that she could take in order to heal and help others.
When Yeonmi Park at nknews.org did her speech, the video went viral. The room was emotionally charged with many people crying, including Yeonmi Park herself. Due to the viral video, this has also gotten the attention of the North Korean government. In response, they did everything they can to discredit Yeonmi Park. However, it is too late. The North Korean government government has always been looked at with an air of suspicion. Yeonmi Park has dealt a devastating blow with her speech and continues to find ways to help North Koreans achieve freedom.
She is also working on freeing others due to the fact that she sees all humans as alike. She believes all people are worthy of respect initially and should be treated as such. She will not tolerate any kind of violation of human rights. She will fight hard for everyone.
