Long Live the Country!
[Mayor Park Won Soon’s Hope Journal 236]
“Let’s defend our country forever! Let’s work together for the prosperity of the country.”
(From the lyrics to the “Liberation Day” song)
On the occasion of Liberation Day, I intend to refresh my resolve to remember what Korean independence activists did for the country and acknowledge their sublime spirit of self-sacrifice. Currently, there are thirty-eight independence activists living in Seoul. I hope that many people will join me in refreshing their resolve to uphold their sublime sprit of self-sacrifice and do something to help them live comfortably for the rest of their lives. I shall call out their names one by one.
