Recently, David and I visited the Honolulu Museum of Art to view Korean ceramics, which were and are famous throughout Asia.
These are pieces from the Chosun Dynasty (1392-1910):
There were other works of art in the Korean section of the museum, but I just wanted to focus on the ceramics today.
As you know, I am pure Korean and my daughters are half Korean. We are definitely proud of our Korean heritage.
David and I spent five days in Korea in 2002 to bury the remains of my maternal grandparents in the national cemetery. They were honored as Patriots of Korea for working tirelessly to liberate Korea from Japanese colonization.
It’s too bad that the Korean peninsula is divided, as I have relatives living in both North and South Korea. We always pray for unification, which hopefully will happen in my lifetime.
