Hi everyone, it's Lisa Ling. Firstly, our families are deeply gratefulTheir families will be appearing on various news shows to bring attention and draw support to Euna and Laura's plight. That's this Monday, June 1, on NBC's Today Show (7:00am block) and CNN's Larry King (9:00pm EST, 6:00pm PST). There will also be vigils held all around the country on June 3:
for your support and efforts to try to secure the release of Laura and
Euna. To say that this has been stressful would be to grossly
understate how hard this has been. Our families have been very quiet
because of the extreme sensitivity of the situation, but given the
fact that our girls are in the midst of a global nuclear stand-off, we
cannot wait any longer.
We have to speak out!
Our families will be on the Today Show on NBC in the 7AM block on
Monday morning --3 days before the June 4 trial (taking the time
differnce in consdieration). We will also be on the Larry King show on
CNN Monday night as well. Please help us urge both our government and
North Korea's to resolve this humanitarian issue. Help us stand up for
truth and two girls who just wanted to tell the world a story.
My deepest and most sincere thanks,
