“Your contribution to the promotion of peace and reunification on the Korean Peninsula has been chosen as the recipient of the 2018 Korea Unification Contribution Award. In honor of that achievement, we will present the medal and plaque of peace on the Korean Peninsula, which is made by melting the DMZ barbed wire and the shell used in the Korean War, symbolizing the division of the Korean peninsula, with the appreciation and respect of all Koreans.”Mr. Chung Ui Wha, the Chairman of the 19th National Assembly of Korea, presented the awards and plaques: I was honored to have the opportunity to present medals to our Veterans who served in the Korean War. This was especially moving for me, as any one of those soldiers may have helped save my life when I was a young girl running from the bombs in the Korean War!
I had the opportunity to share a few thoughts after receiving my medal. My main message was to share with everyone that as we strive to generate peace in the Korean Peninsula, it is most important that we recognize that peace comes from within us. So, let us have peace in our heart, and may it continue to grow, so we can share peace with the whole world. Always remember: He Can Do, She Can Do, Why Not Me!
It’s a common misconception that most of our attachments center on objects or people. The truth is that our attitudes and feelings about objects are more binding than the objects themselves. For example, we may become attached to an object, person, or situation (even if we complain about it) because we like feeling comfortable, we fear change, and we don’t have the courage to take initiative on our own. Maybe we stay with a domineering boyfriend, girlfriend, or employer, even though doing so is keeping us stuck in a rut. In cases like these, fear is the real attachment, not the person. If suddenly those people are removed from our lives but we still have not let go of our fundamental fears and have not developed the strength to stand up for ourselves, we’ll just become attached to the next domineering boyfriend or girlfriend or employer that comes along – and continue to complain about them. That’s because the thoughts we keep in our mind rule over us as long as we allow them to stay there, and they continue to produce the same results.
