A powerful message

My grandfather recently passed away, only a week before my arrival in Seoul. He fought in the United States Air Force in Vietnam alongside many Korean forces. Our visit today to the DMZ and Korean War Memorial stung a little more painful than I expected, but this experience was grounding in its very complex past and hopeful future. While the struggles of peace and reunification in the Korean Peninsula may be far from home in the US, the messages conveyed by the history that stands in these memorials and museums are not too foreign at all.
