The Korean Post has issued a stamp commemorating the 60th anniversary of the Korean War.
In the year 1950, the Korean peninsula was a land of misery, filled with gunfire, a land of the heartache of having to experience, amidst the war, the passing away of loving family members, brothers and friends. The 6.5 War took the precious lives of hundreds of thousands of people, making Korea a land where everything was in ruins. The war left behind a disastrous legacy where people of the same blood aimed muzzles against each other, producing 10 million dispersed families who, living separately in north and south of the peninsula, cannot even communicate.
The commemorative stamp features a butterfly that flutters peacefully over the barbed wires of the ceasefire line. Looking at the butterfly that flutters about freely, it is hoped that the day of such peace will eventually come to the Korean peninsula.
