In September Juche 105 (2016), members of an international organization inspected the flood-stricken areas in North Hamgyong Province.
They met with an 11-year-old girl in the city of Hoeryong.
The girl was in a shabby dress and wore one of a pair of shoes. She said her family was left homeless, with all properties gone away by flooding.
But the members could not find a glimpse of fear, pessimism and disappointment on her face.
They asked her how she would live in the future. She answered fearlessly that it was no problem as Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un would build a house and give shoes for her.
They asked again what she would become in the future. She replied she would become a soldier of the People’s Army to defend the benevolent socialist system.
It was the time when the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea did not yet send an appeal on directing the main thrust of the country to the campaign for recovering the afflicted areas from the flood damage and concentrating all efforts to this end, and no one could expect what measures the State would take.
But the girl was full of trust in the socialist system and confidence and optimism that the Korean people could clear away any natural disasters and bring about happiness as long as they are guided by the Supreme Leader.
