I received 2 small self-made FDC from South Korea in 2003.(quite long time) I should thank my korean friend for those nice covers.
The stamp was for 노무현 | Roh Moo-hyun. (16th president of (Republic of Korea))
To speak frankly, I rarely wrote something about politician.
Hope all the politicians in the world will look Roh Moo-hyun as a mirror.
Peace for the world !
I hope God bless Korean People. God bless Roh Moo-hyun.
In the real world,
Some people are still alive, but in fact they are dead.
Some people are dead, but they will be alive in the heart of world people for ever.

In his blog, Roh Moo-hyun wrote:
I have owed to too many people. The amount of burden I have caused to them is too great.
I can't begin to fathom the countless agonies down the road. The rest of my life would only be a burden for others.
I am unable to do anything because of poor health. I can't read books, nor can I write.
Do not be too sad. Isn't life and death all part of nature?
Do not be sorry. Do not feel resentment toward anyone. It is fate.
Cremate me. And leave only a small tombstone near home.
I've thought this for a while.
