2. My second connection is when they handed out food to the prisoners. I thought of North Korea when I saw this. I didn't care about North Korea before, but South Korea and North Korea had to unite, so I thought of them first. Many poor people in North Korea wait for the food truck to come by and toss them some good food. Which is not a lot of food for everyone to eat. The people who get those are called "Kkotjebi." I wonder what they call these people in Russia. Any ways "Kkotjebi" means flower swallow who just eat once two days. But not a lot, its as if they have been in hunger for weeks but they get 2 bananas sometimes. So I thought of them first. In our lives we get almost all the food we want, but they couldn't in both. The providing food for poor people was mainly for people that could not provide enough food for themselves, and other people helped them or not. In the book it is one section going one by one to get food. Some of the others could barely get two dishes. This also happens in North Korea too. Some people get none and some get more. It's a race to get the most food or to starve and wait more. This is a tragedy in North Korea and no one can help them. In Africa people go there to help, but North Korea is full of communists. There is no one there to help except the government who don't help. They are left to die. In these camps some could die, but not all. Some could just die from the conditions but not from starvation. At least, they should be thankful for Stalin, he gives food even if they are poor.
