Sunday Bloody Sunday

by Miles H. Rost

“General, sir!”

The General, Chun Doo-Hwan, looked down at his messenger. The current leader of South Korea furrowed his brow

“Yes. What is it?”

“The Gwangju situation is getting out of control. The students are starting to march.”

“Did we get any news from the US Ambassador?”

“President Carter’s man said that they’re okay with the plan.”

“Then it’s simple. We get order back. Send in the Special Weapons Commandos and see if the students actually can stand up to them.”

    • That’s part of why I wrote it. I want people to know that the same day Mt. St. Helens blew, the start of Korean democracy happened. It’s important, as I live here in Korea.

    • I’m more of a student of history. And the fact that most schoolkids over here don’t actually get the reminder that their country was once ruled by dictators.
