So, it took some time for my mind to process things and then it really hit hard, and a song started to play in my head.
I’m coming home, I’m coming home. Tell the world that I’m coming home.
Translation: “Do-Won!! Hurry back, I miss you! I’ll be waiting.”
Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday.
I know my kingdom awaits, and they’ve forgiven my mistakes.
I’m coming home, I’m coming home, tell the world I’m coming…
Brother who gave his life jacket to his sister, as of now her brother and parents have not been heard from.
Park Ji Young, one of the heroes mentioned who did not survive.
Please pay respect to those who did not make it, the missing, the survivors, and a nation who is mourning together. Please come home soon, your friends and family are waiting for you, don’t leave them waiting. 우리는 당신을 사랑합니다 - we love you. 우리는 당신을 그리워 - we miss you. We’ll be waiting until you arrive home. “Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday.” One day, we will watch the sea and remember how vast the world actually is, the struggle of trying to survive. We will watch the stars, and each one that twinkles is those who have left behind the world, they’re waving down to their mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, friends, sons and daughters. I hope that those 25 that are gone have parted peacefully. I hope that those 271 still missing, if alive, keep holding on to live, if not, I too hope you parted peacefully. I hope that the 179 survivors stay safe and well, that they get to see their friends and family again. I hope that parents and family, get to see their kids again. I hope that the children who made it, will see their mommy and daddy again. I know it’s not much but I give my condolences to those in South Korea, stay well.
I am not Korean and I do not own any of this pictures.
