“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.”
The Best Rose came to visit TNKR on Monday. It was a delightful couple of hours, getting an update about Eunhee’s latest adventures. She is enthusiastic and inspiring.
She is a North Korean refugee who talks about freedom without being prompted. She reminds everyone around her how wonderful it is to be free to make their own choices. North Koreans kidnapped at birth often have no idea what freedom is, people born in freedom often don’t appreciate how difficult it has been to get to this point in history where people are free to control their own destinies.
At one point she didn’t use her name or show her face because she was embarrassed about being from North Korea. Now she is a rose blossoming, learning more about the world. Wherever she goes, she stands out, people remember that she was there. She likes to give credit to TNKR for her metamorphosis. Hearing that warms our hearts every time, and reminds us how wonderful it has been to start and develop TNKR.
