I was you...

when i see a bunch of kids, i can't help myself from smiling...i was thinking maybe, just maybe one of them will look like our kid.

When I was in Suwon and we were doing a field visit at the Korean Folk Village, I saw a bunch of Korean kids wearing these cute, yellow backpacks with “EBC” written on them. I was informed that they are young students from an English Based Campus. I got caught up watching them while their teacher was telling them a story about the wishing stone. There’s this kid that got my attention the most. I tried to engage with the bunch, but she shied away. She was just looking at me from afar. I tried capturing an image of her but she looked the other way. She would not look at me. I said to myself, “goodness, she reminds me of myself when I was a kid—always feeling estranged.”
