A bit of hopeful news for the 100th post (at least I think it's hopeful.) The North Korean stronghold opened a little on Tuesday. The New York Philharmonic became the first major foreign entity to play in the country. With foreign music cut off from North Korea, (they can't listen to anything made after 1900) it was an amazing opportunity to let the people expand their horizons. I hope little steps make a difference, and that over time (and in my lifetime) North Korea will open back up and be free. They played the North Korean and American National anthem for the opening songs in Pyongyang. Let's hope this is just a beginning for more and more small changes in North Korea!
