FEATURED!: My "May Peace Prevail on Earth Greeting Card in Korean" has recently been featured in an Etsy treasury as well as the Greeting Card Set is also featured in the Etsygreetings blog!
PHOTO’s STORY: This photograph was taken in Gwangju, South Korea, where it says “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in many languages, including English and Korean. This sign was posted near their “Democracy Memorial” where it recognizes the tragedy that happened on 5.18 known as the Gwangju Uprising, which is similar to the Tienanmen Square Massacre in China, where people protested what was going on the government, and here they rallied for democracy.
