== Brief History of Modern Korea ==

Have you ever heard of Korea?
It is a small county situated in North East Asia
This story begins in 1910

In 1910, Koreans lost their country.
The tyranny was too much for the Korean people.
so they moved Manchuria and Russia to resistant.
but many of them were killed or conscripted.


After 25 years of painful struggling. they declared their independence.
but they had to have another tragedy first

Korean War

The war was painful agony.
and they lost everything again.
They never dreamed about the future.
praying was the only thing they could do.
Their only desire was
to find food and to stay alive.
Only the ruins was left after the war.

However, the Koreans knew what to do,
it was hard work,
but they never gave up.
All the people worked together to rebuild their nation.
It's been 50 years since they rebuild their nation.
Do you believe in miracle?
Here are some achievements

Sometimes people asks us why are you so proud of your country?
Koreans answer

We are not proud of our country for getting out of poverty
We have a strong SPIRIT

We do not want other people to suffer like we did.



THE SPRIT

That is why we are so very proud of our country.
We have made a promise to our children.
We will never let them suffer like we did.

NEVER!!

We appreciate "Our miracle" would never have been possible without your precious support.

Great thanks to our precious allies.
