#BIGPICTURE: South Korean mother and North Korean son meet for the first time in 6 decades


You’re looking at a South Korean mother wrapping her arms around her North Korean son for the first time in more than 65 years. That’s right – they had not spoken or seen each other since they were separated after the Korean War. That mom was one of the dozens of South Koreans given a rare chance to cross into North Korea for a heart-wrenching reunion. The photograph from AP.
