What do you think about PEACE? MANNAM International

I think that peace will come when everyone has one same thought.What same thought? To exist together! People have chosen to win the others constantly instead of living peacefully.Because we tend to expect that we will be happy when we have more thingsㅡmore money,more  estate,more belongings. But human's greed has no limits. In other words, there is no real happiness in having more stuff. It is a total waste of time. So,we must stop to pursue happiness through the competitionㅡwinning game.It is useless. Now,we should concentrate the more important matterㅡthe world which has no war.If our recognition changes,World peace will come true.

[MANNAM Peace] Benjamin Franklin quote

"There never was a good war or bad peace."
-Benjamin Franklin

I am in sympathy with this quote.
Good war?Bad peace?
It doesn't make sense.
There was only a bad war or good peace!

MANNAM Peace, Nelson Mandela quote

No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.
NELSON MANDELA, Autobiography
Nelson Mandela passed away a few days ago. He is still the most admired man on the planet.
So, I want to share his quote today.
I hope we think about his word and his work for peace.
He is dead but, we should memorize his mind.

MANNAM International Korean Class had the experience to make Kimchi which is korean traditional food

Sharing Kimjang with MANNAM Volunteer Association
(It will be delivered to poor neighbors.)
Kimjang is an event for making kimchi in large quantities so that it may be stored and eaten during the winter. Since kimchi is the most basic side dish in Korean dining, this is considered a major family event in preparation for the cold season.
 Annually my mother goes to hometown and makes Kimchi with ant and grandma, and brings them home. Eating Kimchi, that is a matter of course. However, I had no chance to make Kimchi and actually this is my first time to make Kimchi.

About 30 foreigners participated in Kimjang in MANNAM Volunteer and there were other volunteers. Including me, all my friends were excited to do our new experience.
Some of them tastedextemporaneously, gave the piece of Kimchi each other, sang a song and danced.
 That made good atmosphere and all MANNAM volunteers can enjoy that time. By increasing our temperature, all of us could concentrate to do Kimjang and we finished that ahead of time.
Finished the volunteer work, we went to eat Korean traditional meal. Started from Korean traditional pancake, there were Korean chicken soup, egg cooking and so on. With amount of cooking, I ate my fill. Various and delicious foods made us happy and friendly.  

   Activities with MANNAM are always exciting. I can feel others consideration and peaceful heart. Including Kimjang, I am gaining good experiences with MANNAM. If you want peace and make them real, how about come and join us?

Many people call Mandela one of the greatest heroes of South Africa.
Mandela fought against racism during the era of Apartheid in South Africa.
He played a pivotal role for black people in his country getting equal rights.
He reminds us of wish for peace and tell us message of peace.
It is now time for shouts of peace together instead of him.

MANNAM is serving the community.
MANNAM Volunteer Association works for world peace.
He is dead but, we should be of good cheer encouraged his word.
I swear we'll make peace provided you do, too.
We should make a forum for harmony and unity without war.
He is dead but, there is also one of peace advocate Man Hee Lee who is our hope.
He also shouts for world peace at the head.
We should try to make world peace following his footprints and listening his voice.

We must make world peace!  We want peace!

The world now wants peace.

Do you remember?

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.

  - Mother Teresa 

   The Peace is not something ready-made, but something in continuous formation through choice of action. I choose MANNAM to remember the peace and each other. What is your choice?
