I thought of this photo recently and thought I’d do a part two to the Weekly Photo Challenge. This photo was taken in Seoul, South Korea.
Homelessness, along with mental illness and many other taboo issues are not found very often in South Korea. After spending a year experiencing the culture and learning about the history I can understand why Korea has a tendency to pretend like issues such as this don’t exist. Unfortunately, until taboo issues are acknowledged, they can not even begin to be resolved, leaving those who need help the most, helpless.
