The Korean ferry disaster is becoming a national nightmare

The Korean ferry disaster that occurred one month ago is quickly becoming a national nightmare. The captain of the ship is being charged with murder. Captain Lee Joon-seok initially told passengers to stay in their cabins and took about half an hour to issue an evacuation order. Other crew members are being charged with negligence and abandoning passengers in need. Meanwhile, Koreans are not traveling. They’re canceling their vacations. The country’s tourism business has seen a dramatic drop. There are still 23 bodies missing from the ferry accident and at this point, I doubt they’ll find them. Over 300 people died.

The story is very depressing. It’s troubling for the families and the entire nation of Korea. Let’s pause to pray for Korea.
