Glance over the city of Seoul from a mountain that once acted as a fortress. Resplendent colors and streams of lights will probably grab your attention the most. How beautiful each of the glimmers are! These glints may seem small, but together, they make up the city, and even the country. These subtle gleams are us:the citizen. As citizens, we light up the city and we make up the country. No matter how small or big of a light you are, no matter how far or near you are, you are a light and you are the country.
The fortress built up of stones used to protect our country and its people from external aggression. In the current state of the world, it is not the tangible fortress that would protect the people. Rather, it is our attention, our consciousness of the world, and our strong will to rectify the wrongs. It is nothing but our endeavor that will help the lights glow as they are now.
Give equal attention to each of the many spark of lights that make up the city. Yes, it may be a meticulous and demanding task. But by doing so, we will finally be able to see the full country, recognizeeach and everyparticipants, and appreciate its true beauty at last. Because without any of the tiniest sparks, the country cannotbe the same, the country cannotbe as full, and the country will not exist.
