American Journalists Released!

I must admit I got teary eyed when I heard that American journalists, Euna Lee and Laura Ling, were finally released after being imprisoned in North Korea.

"The women were granted a pardon by North Korea following rare talks between Clinton and the reclusive leader Kim Jong Il. They had been sentenced to 12 years of hard labor for entering the country illegally," reported the AP.

My heart ached for these two brave women and their families at the thought of their tragic situation and I am so overjoyed to hear about their arrival back home.
