Mayor's Hope Journal

  • Hope Starts with Families
    [Mayor Park Won Soon’s Hope Journal 632]

    I recently received the message below.

    After reading it, the word “family” lingered in my mind for quite a while.

    Pain and healing both begin with families.
    As such, I will root for the youths of Ansan, who began their journey of hope from within their families.
    I love “Ansan.”

    Dear Mayor,
    My name is Kang Gyeon-hyeon, and I live in Ansan.
    First, I would like to tell you that I’m forever grateful to hear that you are still concerned about the Sewol Ferry tragedy and are helping people who have been affected by the tragic accident.

    I know you are very busy, so I will get straight to the point.
    Some youths in Ansan have started a small project to talk about the “hope of Ansan.”
    Instead of explaining this in words, I would like to share the following video clip with you.

    In May, which is Family Month, I hope that you will listen to the song of Ansan’s youths, whose message is that family is the beginning of all hope.
