Returning to the DMZ after 20+ years

During our recent visit to South Korea, we visited the demilitarized zone (DMZ) between North and South Korea.  Zach served along the DMZ for a year while in the Army 20+ years ago.  Returning after all of these years brought back many memories.  

More than 2,700,000 people were killed in the Korean War which is still technically ongoing.  We all learned a great deal about this awful conflict and pray for a peaceful resolution.

There is a beautiful new train station built in anticipation of reunification.  It is empty other than tour groups as there is no traffic between the nations now.
It may be a while for the next train to Pyeongyang.

Here's to peace in our lifetimes.
