Dear Korean war veterans

Hello, I'm Do Hyeon Kim, living in south Korea. I'm 18 years old and I'm high school student. I'm writing this letter to appreciate your sacrifice during the Korean war. I was so touched at your brave and strong mind. Thanks to you, many Koreans could save their lives, and we could protect our country. Out of gratitude, I'd like to tell you how I spent this year. First, I stayed at home a lot this year. Nowadays, Corona virus is spreading throughout the whole world. Many people are wearing masks all day, and there are few people going around in the cities. Everyday we are living in anxiety and worries. My life also has changed a lot than before. I was not able to go school, so it was the first time for me to do 'online class'. (It is something like online school.) Even though there are some advantages of online school, I still want to go to school because I really miss my friends. As we were not allowed to go crowded place, me and my friends usually played at home. Playing at home is fun too but I think it's more fun to play outside. I also watched a lot of movies at home. It was one of the only ways to relieve my frustration. I think I almost watched more than 50 movies! This year, I studied a bit harder than last year. Since I will be a senior in high school next year, I have to study hard to get good grades at CSAT(College Scholastic Ability Test). It's something like AST in America. I'm afraid to be a senior in high school because I really don't like tests..But I will not give up and study hard because I can go to a good university if I try hard for a year. I wish I could go to university where I want. This year, I could find a job I hope to have in the future. It's teacher. This year, I took courses called ethics and thought. There, we learn about Eastern and Western thinkers, such as Confucius and Aristotle. I think it is very fun, but it's hard to understand. So many students have trouble studying. I want to be a teacher who teaches ethics and thought, and make students be interested in studying it. I'm also good at listening to one's troubles. My friends have a lot of worries about grades and their future. But I think there are few teachers listening to students' concerns. I want to be a teacher who listens to student's voice and help students when they are having a hard time.
This year was very though but thoughtful for me, since I think I have grown up a lot. I hope this difficult situation due to Covid 19 will pass quickly and regain our original lives. I really miss the time before corona. We are going to work hard to protect korea that you protected in the past. I will never forget your sacrifice. Your brave and effort will be always in our heart. Thank you for reading this long letter, always be healthy!
