Rick Smolan is a photographer – an accomplished photographer.  Rick was sent on assignment by TIME to do a story on Amerasian kids in Korea – these are children born of American GI’s conceived during the Korean war.  Unhappy with the way TIME delivered the story he saw in Korea, he decides to take a sabbatical and return to Korea to tell the story properly.  As most of us westerners think – Rick thought he would make a difference to the story – little did he know that this story was going to change him.  Watch Rick tell his story – it’s beautiful.
