    Seoul, South Korea: End Slavery Now!


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Jarvis432 Jarvis Randell who is an acting missionary in Seoul decided to use parachutes in the pledge because of the representation of the object of a parachute in lives. He said, "This represents our ability to fly above problems in our lives and our world while being easily viewed by those who look from below. This is especially poignant to those who are mired in a way of life and are looking up with the hopes of finding a way to a better life. From the ground, we tend to run to where an airplane or parachute lands. We hope this sends a message to those who are living in slavery. We see your pain! We feel your pain! We want to help!"
    - wtang, CNN iReport producer

    We took about 20 students on an English Bible summer camp from Seoul to Daebu-do, South Korea.  One day we were talking about parachutes and someone had the idea of throwing them off the second floor.  Each team designed and created their own parachute with the team captain performing the launch.  As they completed their project, we talked to them about the atrocities in our world not too far from Korea - child slavery among other things.  CNN's current project coincided with our subject.  So we made this short video to show you what we did.  Not all the students had a parachute so we had the little children throw a balloon in support of ending slavery now!  We support CNN and those who are working hard to reduce and put an end to slavery.  We believe it is a basic human right to follow one's calling in life minus the fear of being a slave to those with unsavory aspirations at the cost of others.
