Each year, the 24th of October is called “United Nations Day”

United Nations, as known as UN, is an organization which is founded for preventing wars and keeping peace. It is organized in San Francisco, USA.
So, there was an event for celebrating UN Day in EWHA WOMANS UNIVERSITY.
We could meet the vice secretary-general of UN, participate in Quiz Show, visit booths of other countries which are in UN. Also we could listen to Hymn to the United Nations.
Actually photos on the Gallery (above this passage) are not taken in EWHA WOMANS UNIVERSITY. They’re the pictures in front of Sejong Center.
There were about a hundred of photos in front of Sejong Center. It was mainly about Korean War. UN helped us get the power to turn North Korea away, and they dispatched troops, gave South Koreans a lot of aid.
That’s why the UN Day is especially special to South Korea.
I felt little sad because there was a sentence, and that means “Korea is still a cease-fire country. We have to protect our country with lucid country mind and security mind” Everyone knows that Korea is a truce country. However, Koreans are not that afraid of War, they feel safe. Yes, that could sound weird, but I think that the Reunification of North and South Korea will come soon. And I Hope It Will.
