ANAHEIM...Otto Warmbier, an American student who was held by North Korea for 17 months and recently released in a coma is now dead. Otto was only 22 years old at the time of his death, which was caused by a "severe neurological injury" that was inflicted upon him while he was serving a 15-year prison sentence of hard labor.

The cruelty that he had suffered must be told to every citizen in America who cherishes freedom. His parents condemned the regime of Kim Jong-un in Pyongyang, praised the administration of President Donald J. Trump in Washington and criticized the former administration of President Barack H. Obama.

Meanwhile, three other Americans remain as prisoners in North Korea. If there was ever a reason for the people of this nation to unite, this would definitely be worthy of their consideration.

John Spring is a resident of Anaheim.
