It is traditional for Koreans to go to the seashore or mountain on the first day of the year to observe the sun as it rises above the horizon for the first time. Miss Eun-jung Park captured that moment with her camera at Dadaepo, Busan. The same sun washed over the graves of comrades who fell in Korea and who rest within the United Nations Memorial Cemetery under the ever constant care of Ambassador Lee and his dedicated staff. They fell that Koreans then and those of this day who were not yet in the world might cherish free moments such as this and look forward to every day of the new year that unfolds for them. Their sacrifice and yours will never, never be forgotten. We see your kind faces all shining so sweetly in every grand morning that blesses our land.
