Only a few of the 365 days in each year are associated with extraordinary events, but for those who experienced the events, the dates arouse great emotion. For Koreans, August 15 commemorates the restoration of the country’s independence after a Japanese occupation of 36 years. June 25 marks the outbreak of the Korean War. And for those of us who live in the U.S., September 11 will always be the day America was attacked. I was on my way to school that day, listening to the radio in my car, when the announcer said that planes had crashed into the Twin Towers in New York and destroyed the majestic skyscrapers. I will never forget that moment. Yet I know that somehow I must forgive.
