Many people often ask me the same question.
“Are you from South Korea or North Korea?”
Chances are, every Korean person you have ever met is from South Korea.
Last week, North Korean dictator, Kim Jong-Il passed away.
A customer asked me what my thoughts are about this.
The Korean peninsula is a very small piece of land. It has been 66 years since it was divided into North and South Korea. The land has a very sad history.
Today is Christmas.
I understand that there are those of you who celebrate Christmas and there are also those of you who don’t.
However, regardless of what religion we adhere to, this is a season of peace.
My hope is that every person on earth could experience peace.
I’m not talking about something huge like world peace.
I mean that I hope we could all be at peace with everyone we interact with on a daily basis, whether that’s family, friends, or neighbors.
I pray that North and South Korea could experience that same peace.
The reason I am able to clean your clothing and enjoy life is because of peace.
I hope your week overflows with peace.
