It looks like the big news of the day is that North Korea and South Korea have started shooting at each other. North Korea started shelling a South Korean island this morning, and is threatening further “merciless” attacks. Meanwhile, South Korea is threatening massive retaliation, and reports have come out that the South has returned fire.
This is definitely a chintzy situation; hopefully diplomacy will win out and the two Koreas will be able to resolve the situation peacefully. We went through enough hell in the first Korean War; we don’t need a second, and with the North in possession of nukes, it’s a whole new ballgame.
Keep both nations in your prayers as they hopefully move forward to a cessation of hostilities.
