It’s past 3am PDT and I need to rest.
I will be moving to a new place tomorrow (more like in a few hours) so I won’t have immediate access to the internet. However, I will still be on mobile and will continue to update on the Sewol ferry toll.
I will be updating one time in about 4 hours (before I hit the road) and then periodically from my mobile. I really hope to wake up to good news and not have to keep updating you with increasing death tolls.
Please keep praying for the victims, their families, friends, the rescue team and all the volunteers who are helping right now.
Also, if you can make a donation please do it, they need all the support they can get right now.
I’m screaming, and jumping, and crying all at the same time!
My friend who was on the ferry and whom I was unable to reach for the past 4 days has finally gotten in touch with me! I am so happy I can’t even describe how I’m feeling. He was one of the 174 who were rescued and just recently had access to his mobile phone again.
I really wish everyone who is waiting right now could receive good news about their loved ones who are missing.
Family member of missing passengers #Sewol #ferry decided to go to the Blue House, the Korean presidential residence to protest against incompetent government measure.
This article is describing what is really going on in South Korea right now. Relatives of the victims are mad and want to meet with the President but they are being blocked and treated like criminals. Even the news stopped broadcasting about the Sewol ferry. Parents are angry at the lack of professionalism with which the situation has been handled. It seems like the Korean government has purposefully delayed the rescue efforts by not allowing private divers and foreign countries to help with the rescue. Please take a minute to read this and spread the word. We cannot physically be there to help but, at least, we can help them show the world what is really going on.
It has just been announced that Navy Sergeant Yoon passed away Saturday night due to brain injuries he sustained while trying to help with the rescue mission on Wednesday.
Another hero has been lost. He lost his life as a result of trying to help the victims of the ferry disaster.
RIP Sergeant Yoon
My prayers and gratitude go out to everyone who helped and are still helping. Those who sacrificed their lives and still risk them now while trying to find those who are still missing.
The numbers keep changing due to the lack of accuracy of the coast guard and the govt. I will not be amending/editing any previous updates on the toll I posted right now. I will wait a couple more hours to make necessary adjustments.
If you cannot find news about what’s currently going on in English or any other foreign language do not feel left out. There hasn’t been much news out other than the bodies recovered. The Korean news are not much better. Knowing Korean or having someone in Korea telling you what the news say is not much different from relaying on what you can find online.
Please be patient and don’t lose hope. Please keep praying for those who are still stuck inside the ferry, those who have already passed, the families, friends, and everyone who has been affected by this tragedy.
Anonymous asked: well I wish you good with your academic mess. I'm in the West Coast and you
What a coincidence! Me too!
We are in the same time zone…which means you truly are a creature of the early hours of the morning.
Anonymous asked: so what's up beautiful
Ughh…so many things! But my priority now is fixing the mess my academic life has become…what about you?
Also, you might not want to tell me who you are but can I least know where you are located? I’m curious due to the times I get your messages you creature of the early hours of the morning. Or maybe there’s just a pretty big hour gap because of time zones.
