The 2018 Winter Olympics belong to Korea. They are the hosts, they made the arrangements. They have indicated for several weeks that they would use this opportunity to promote reunion.

The Korean people did not draw a line to turn themselves into two nations; that was done to them by two powerful nations at war with each other decades ago. Koreans considered themselves to be one people for centuries, before many other countries were even formed. Once the line was drawn, it cut through the hearts of most Korean families, separating childhood friends, church congregations, social groups, school friends, parents and children, and sisters and brothers. All Koreans long for reunion. Is that so hard for the rest of us to understand?

Korea planned a reunion party and invited the whole world to come. If you go to such a party, do you insult the special guests and bully the hosts to disown those of the guests who are their own brothers and sisters?

To all Koreans, wherever you are in the world today, I am sorry that our vice president is such a jerk.
