North Korean refugees in America commit murder-suicide

This is an extremely saddening story. On June 20th, World Refugee Day, a North Korean family, that escaped from North Korea, came to the US, and settled in Rochester, NY, a year and half ago... was found dead. Police is suspecting a murder-suicide case.

The Seo Family, had little money, little education, no relatives, no one to truly relate to. All they had was language problems, shocking culture differences, and sorrow for whatever and whoever left behind in North Korea when they escaped with their lives at stake.

What a tragic end... I really hope the best for the children left behind, and hopefully this will lead to a better understanding of North Korean refugees living abroad.
