NEW YORK — Kim Hye-Sook, who survived 28 years of agonizing pain and suffering in a North Korean prison camp, offered a detailed account of the forced labor, starvation and torture she endured under the Communist dictatorship while speaking at the U.N.'s "Victims Voices: A Conversation on North Korean Human Rights" event on Thursday.
Organized by the United States and South Korea, the event took place at the U.N.'s New York City headquarters and featured testimonies on human rights abuses in the DPRK from Hye-Sook as well as two other North Korean defectors. With help from a translator, Hye-Sook detailed her harrowing experience, which started when she was captured alongside her family at just 13 years old for reasons withheld from her at the time.
"I was taken to prison camp 18 and I was imprisoned there for 28 years, living in a life that is unimaginable, a life that is worse than a dog's, living a life like a slave," the North Korean defector began during the panel on human rights. more >>
President Barack Obama made his final appearance on the "The Late Show" with David Letterman on Monday, mixing comedy with talk on some serious issues, such as the riots that broke out last week in Baltimore. Obama said that African-Americans are angry at poverty and unemployment, but added that most Americans want to work together to solve these issues.
"What you have are pockets of poverty, lack of opportunity, lack of education all across this country, and too often we ignore those pockets until something happens, and then we act surprised," Obama said of the broader problem behind the riots and burning of homes and businesses.
"There are cities across the country who work with police, clergy and others and say we want to get beyond the status quo, and I'm confident we can see improvement," he added. more >>

NEW YORK — Christian author Joe Battaglia breaks down the "intellectual dishonesty of political correctness" in his new book The Politically Incorrect Jesus and he recently stopped by CP Voice to discuss his latest book further.
The writer, who is also the founder and president of Renaissance Communications and has had a hand in promoting such films as "The Passion" and "God's Not Dead" feels Christians need to rise above the politics and polemics of the day as Jesus did. He also explained that no cause should trump the mission of Christ in a Christian's life.
"As I say in the book, whenever we raise the flag higher than the cross we have a problem," Battaglia told CP Voice. "People get confused. Any flag or any cause. [Because] Christ said when He gets lifted up, not when a political party gets lifted up, not when an idea gets lifted up, not even when His best representatives get lifted up, but when He gets lifted up He will draw all men to Himself." more >>
