We at the Harrington Times expect that there are many back in the US and around the world who have heard recent news regarding North Korea and South Korea.
If you haven't had a chance to catch up on the latest, check out this article from The New York Times and/or this video from CNN.
Prior to arriving in South Korea, the Harrington's communicated with expats who measured their safety by the actions and reactions of native South Koreans. The Harrington's have seen nothing but continued calm and cool-headedness by South Koreans nor have they received a message from the U.S. Embassy to which they registered.
Therefore, family and friends back home can rest assured that the couple is safe and unfortunately won't be making a trip back home for the Holiday's as of this posting.
