Welcome a new Jung Suwon-imal to the neigh-bor hood!

June 6, 2012

Let’s give a big, warm welcome to our brand new Jung Suwon-imal, Horatio the horse!

Isn’t he beautiful?

He moved into the neigh-borhood just a couple of weeks ago and is still a little shy.  But like a true Jung Suwon warrior, he is eager to make friends and  work out with you!

I stopped to say hello to him.

It reminded me so much of Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim’s story, when she had just come to the USA, and started to teach at a local high school, and after a semester, after being selected as the teacher of the year, there was a party given in her honor.  She dressed in her traditional Korean dress, and excitedly came to the party. But  to her great disappointment, after people stopped by to say hello, nobody would talk to her.  She was left all alone, while the other guests formed cliques and talked among themselves.  Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim was determined that in her environment, such things would never happen, and she makes a point at all her events and everywhere she goes that there are no “left alone” people.

Well, Horatio isn’t going to be left out!  Unlike Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim’s story, we’ll be stopping by often and making sure he doesn’t feel left all alone.  I heard some Jung Suwon warriors already introduced themselves and helped him feel right at home.

Welcome to the Jung Suwon neighborhood, Horatio!
