INCHEON, Oct. 26 (Korea Bizwire) – Elementary schoolchildren on Baengyeong Island, located a stone’s throw from the maritime military demarcation line between the two Koreas, have sent handwritten letters to the U.S. embassy in Seoul for the soon-to-visit President Donald Trump, asking that “There be no war”.
A total of 83 letters from 83 children translated into English will be delivered and be waiting for Trump when he arrives in South Korea amidst his 12-day trip through five Asian nations. South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Trump are scheduled to hold a summit on November 7.
With the simple-hearted innocence of children shining through, the letters read: “North Korea must make you very mad. They make me mad too. But please use your words instead”, and “Please help protect our country”.
