vanguard journalism


Something has been on my mind
for the past couple of months



our dear friend's
Laura Ling & Euna Lee
have been detained in
North Korea since march,
and they face trial
June 4

as you may know,
we have no diplomatic
relations with N. Korea

it seems like yesterday
we're all having dinner in nyc,
sharing adventures...
celebrating.

gosh we miss
them terribly and
we already feel a
great void in
journalism


tonight
and every night
until they are free,
light a candle with us
or in private


San Francisco Vigil
steps of city hall
wed. June 3
6PM

i'm so glad you posted about this. Laura's sister Lisa and I were good friends in high school. I've thought about Laura non stop.

Count me in. I am lighting a candle every day. Tragic.

They will be in my thoughts and I will light a candle in their names.

Is it that on-going negotiations are so delicate that we have so little in the general media about this case?

(I just really wish I hadn't let myself read the hate-filled, ignorant you tube comments.)

it is one thing to hear about such things on the news...always seems a little abstract and distant...(know what i mean?) but then when one realises that they are of course real people...and real people know them...less of a distance and more of an understanding takes over....i'll light a candle. thank you for drawing this to my attention.

I read your blog on Saturday and haven't stopped thinking about your friend since then. Is there any news? Please keep us posted.

I just happen to come across your blog post today and it looks like you'll be at city hall in a few moments - I hope everything will be ok.

sending you, and euna and laura my sincerest concerns. i read about the outrageous, groundless, painfully abstract sentence of 12 yrs.. how can this be.
