Second generation’s comment

I love receiving emails like this through my website, so rewarding and grateful:  Sarah graduated from UCLA with a Master’s degree and now studying further at Columbia.  Thank you, Sarah.

Grace Notes;

After reading your book, I just wanted to thank you for writing it… I enjoyed being able to see Korea through your eyes, especially during a time when Korea was so different from how it is right now.  I think the book gave me a glimpse of my grand parents’ childhood and homeland.  I also thank you because the book was encouraged me in many other ways as well.  I am in my early twenties, and my future is filled with uncertainty….I know in my heart that God has a wonderful blueprint for my life, but I have been really confused about how he wants me to live…what kind of career, what kind of dream, what kind of vision he wants me to have.  I think you rook helped me realize that no matter what, the life that He has in store with me is a beautiful piece of art, and my role is to trust him and do my best to fill each day with the best “grace notes” I can.  It’s comforting to knwo that the song is already written, and is approved by Him.  It’s comforting to know that it is something beautiful.  It’s exciting that He is inviting me to partake in the creation of something beautiful and valuable.

Sincerely,

Sarah

Sang spoke at a seminar of 65 educators on the emphasis Korean parents put on their children’s education.  She addressed “grey goose” and “proxy” parents, as well as the communication breakdowns between first generation parents and second generation children.


Dear Mrs. Bukaty

After reading your book, I just wanted to thank you for writing it… I enjoyed being able to see Korea through your eyes, especially during a time when Korea was so different from how it is right now. I think the book gave me a glimpse of my grandparents’ and my parents’ childhood and homeland. I also thank you because the book has encouraged me in many other ways as well. I am in my early twenties, and my future is filled with uncertainty… I know in my heart that God has a wonderful blueprint for my life, but I have been really confused about how He wants me to live… what kind of career, what kind of dream, what kind of vision he wants me to have. I think your book helped me reali
ze that no matter what, the life that He has in store with me is a beautiful piece of art, and my role is to trust him and do my best to fill each day with the best “grace notes” I can. It’s comforting to know that the song is already written, and is approved by Him. It’s comforting to know that it is something beautiful. It’s exciting that He is inviting me to partake in the creation of something beautiful and valuable.
Thank you for your book, for sharing your life, and I hope to meet you one day.
Sincerely,
Sarah
