“Our Puzzle”

 

“War, national and familial separation, immigration, language, cultural and generational divisions, fear of reliving past horrors- all are factors that have muted the stories of Korean War survivors and left missing pieces in their children’s lives. There are hidden injustices, struggles, and acts of compassion and courage that forward. Discovering personal missing pieces and silences pasts is important to the creation of the remembered story (puzzle). Putting the pieces together is a duty we share. The collectively remembered story has the power to transform and, therefore, is true art.”
