UN Global Summit: Bae Yong Joon's Part In It
I am about to go off topic slightly, but only slightly, with this posting. Well, here we are on the eve of the UN climate summit. I think it is fitting that the officials chose Pearl Harbor Day as the day to open the summit. Everyone knows the significance of this day to both American and Japanese people. But, how far we have come in the 58 years since the events of that day took place. And, thanks to the love and strong character of our Yong Joon-ssi, people from Asia, Europe, North and South America have become bonded together to form a global family whose care and concern for each other would have been a near impossibility even 50 years ago. I think it is especially appropriate that his voice will serve to introduce the summit delegates to the issues at stake regarding global warming. Once again, he will fill the gap, so to speak, in an effort to unite the people of the world in this great and necessary cause. My prayers are with him as he speaks to the world tomorrow. God keep, Yonsama, wherever you are, and Godspeed wherever you go.
