Blessed Triplets

Early in July Juche 83 (1994), triplets were born in a remote village near the Military Demarcation Line that divides Korea into north and south.

Their father was an officer in the Korean People’s Army.

Although the triplets received proper medical care, their condition was a cause for concern.

Of the three, the condition of the third, which was the smallest, was particularly poor.

The neighbours were worried about saving the babies, especially as the village was difficult to access.

All the roads into it were blocked because of heavy rain, and as the days went by the doctors grew more apprehensive.

But they did not lose hope; they were convinced that the triplets and their mother would be flown to Pyongyang as soon as the weather improved, because their leader Kim Jong Il had always ensured that all triplets were sent to the Pyongyang Maternity Hospital to be cared for, true to the intention of President Kim Il Sung who regarded the birth of triplets as a good omen for the country’s prosperity.

And so the villagers and doctors looked up at the sky.

But the sky grew darker, lightning flashed overhead followed by thunder, and the rain grew heavier.

Worse still, the sad news of Kim Il Sung’s sudden death was reported.

The doctors, as they watched over the incubators, wailed over his death and the babies’ mother collapsed.

The triplets were no longer mentioned; it was as if everyone had forgotten they even existed.

On July 12 an order was issued by phone and by telegraph.

Who had given this order at a time when the whole country was weeping over the death of their President?

Later it became known that it was Kim Jong Il.

Kim Jong Il was suffering from the greatest sorrow at the loss of Kim Il Sung.

But he gave the order; such was his concern for the triplets.

And so a plane flew to the destination through the heavy rain.

When the plane landed, the triplets’ family, the villagers-young and old, men and women-and soldiers gathered round it, shedding tears of joy.

After 155 days since they were taken to the maternity hospital, the triplets left it in good health.
