    Last April 16 was a day when the sky collapsed with sorrow.

    “We’re sorry, and we’re sorry.” ‘
    We could find no other words to say.
    With our resolve to “never forget,”
    We endured our sorrow.

    The hearts of every single person who resolved to “never forget” will be gathered together at the permanent “Memorial Place for the April 16 Sewol Ferry Tragedy (3rd floor of the Seoul Public Library).

    Here, the victims of the April 16 Sewol Ferry Tragedy will become stars in our hearts and guide us as a compass.

    There is no future for those who forget the past.

    Please come today to the first commemorative ceremony at the new “Memorial Place.”

    With the families of the victims of the tragedy, the service starts at 1:30pm.
