A Greetings card from Dr. Chul Seung Lee, (President UPKMF)
CROWN OF GLORY
When I doubt people, I feel pain.When I judge people, it is unbearable.When I hate people, there is no value to my existence.
Yet if I believe, I am deceived.If I love, I am betrayed.Suffering and grieving tonight, my head in my handsAm I wrong?
Yes, I am wrong.Even though we are deceived, still believe.Though we are betrayed, still forgive.Love completely even those who hate you.Wipe your tears away and welcome with a smileThose who know nothing but deceitAnd those who betray without regret.
Oh Master! The pain of loving!Look at my hands.Place your hand on my chest.My heart is bursting, such agony!But when I loved those who acted against meI brought victory.If you have done the same thing,I will give you the crown of glory.
(Written by Sun Myung Moon in 1936)

Dear Mr Hancock
On behalf of the United Nations Peace Forces of the Korean War Memorial Federation, I would like to convey our warmest greetings to you.
It's getting cooler in Korea. We are missing you and have been since your visit in July. Each of your figures is still vivid in our mind. You so glorious and brave that we couldn't help bowing in respect for you. We still remember the day we went to the UN Cemetery in Busan on a hot summer day. We saw you shed tears laying flowers for your comrades who sacrificed themselves for the peace of the Korean peninsula.
All of you are so precious to us. We would like to give aid to other countries who are in need, as you taught us and showed us through your actions of living for the sake of others. We will always remember you. We hope to see you again sometime.
May God bless you, your family and your nation.
Dr. Chul Seung Lee
(United Nations Peace Forces of the Korean War Memorial Federation)
A THANK YOU LETTER.
