The older you become, the more responsibilities you will have. And there will come a certain point where you are feeling hurt or confused. That is when people need each other, which is a huge part of the drive of our community.

As I lay alone afflicted in Bukgwan
One morning a doctor examined me
Suddenly he asked of my hometown
It’s called Pyungan-do Jungju
The doctor smiled softly
Without a word he took my wrist and felt my pulse
The touch of his hand was warm and soft
My hometown and my father and my father’s friend were all there

I should keep this old saying in my mind; He who never makes any enemies, never makes any friends. No one can have a rapport with everyone!
