Unification

 

This photo was taken at the DMZ in South Korea. The Demilitarised Zone is the land in between North and South Korea. On the right of the photo are thousands and thousands of prayer ribbons tied to the fence, sending messages of hope, dreams and wishes for unification. Down the center in the far distance you see the DMZ and the hills of North Korea. To the left of the photo is a train that was witness to the war. Idle for 61 years, this South Korean steam powered train was on a supply run to a small town in North Korea. It was shot by US soldiers on its way back into South Korea because the soldiers feared that it was a train that had been taken over by the North Korean army. The train is now part of the story that people can visit on their tour of the DMZ.
