Blessings in my surroundings...

Many of you have read/listened to the news, and have heard about what's been going on over here... if you haven't, the synopsis is this:

North Korea fired scores of artillery shells at a South Korean island yesterday, killing two soldiers, in one of the heaviest attacks on its neighbor since the Korean war ended in 1953.

Although this was smeared all over the Korean news, and this went on all afternoon into the evening, it didn't even seem to "phase" the South Korean people around me.... they carried on with their day as though nothing had happened. It's amazing how often this happens (whether it goes public on the news or not). It also amazes me how so many people become desensitized to this, myself included. Today I am blessed for my safety...for my well being... and for this beautiful country that I love in. I'm in awe of it, every time I step outside my home... the beauty that surrounds me, whether it be the people, architecture, animals, etc... it astounds me. I'm truly blessed to be here, and look forward to the next 2 years.

Pin It!
