Suicide was the topic of discussion in one of the classes last week, as a result of a famous Korean actor recently taking his life. Then one person spoke up and talked about how he and 2 others in the class were there when the former president took his life last year on May 23rd. Like there, as in with him before he jumped to his death. I had to take a step back and remind myself where I was; his reply, a sudden blow to the face. It came without warning and I didn't exactly know how to recover, how to regain my footing.
Holy shit, I work with guys whose job it is to protect the President of South Korea!!!! How cool is that!!!
Okay, I didn't write this post to toot my own horn, I wrote it to offer thanks. I want to thank all of you for pushing me to believe I could do this job successfully (you know who you are).
