The Greatest Pain

  As a Korean-American, this is the greatest pain I can never understand but it will always be in my heart. 

Our families were torn apart.  Our dreams were shattered.  Our country was never given the opportunity to prosper because of unnecessary differences. 

When will Korea reunite?  Can we still become one?  Yes, we can…can’t we? 

20 Years Already

My grandma passed away 20 years ago today. She was practically my only grandparent…both my grandfathers passed away before I was born and my paternal grandmother passed away when I was a baby.

I loved my grandma so much! And deep down inside, I know I was her favorite grandchild…because she told me I was 😉 lol

When I was a little kid, like 7 or 8 years old, my grandma would give me $1 every time the ice cream truck came by. And I would run out and chase after the ice cream man, screaming, “Wait! I need a Choco Taco!” (I swear, they’re the best!). And I would go back home with one Choco Taco and my grandma would cut it in half and we would share it. And now, every single time I eat my favorite ice cream…it is a little bittersweet.

More than anything, I wish my grandma could’ve been here longer…not necessarily for me, but for my mommy. I could never imagine living 20 years without having a mom. I bet that’s just the saddest thing ever.

I love you, 할머니 (Grandma)
Thanks for always loving me…and for all those delicious Choco Tacos ❤️

Stay Married

During the last Sunday mass of 2013, the priest asked all married couples to stand up and renew their wedding vows. That’s how important the sacrament of marriage is. We need to nurture this type of union. We, as Catholics, have a responsibility to always stand by our married couples and give them the strength to stay united to each other.
