Two students from the Sewol Ferry celebrate their birthdays today. Park Yeseul and Jang Sujung. Yeseul was an honorary student since her elementary school day. Extremely smart student. The type every parent and every teacher would be proud of. She was the true definition of bravery, too. Even while the ship was capsizing, she kept her calm and stayed strong for her mum and baby sister and was able to record her video message for her mum that unfortunately, turned out to be her last. "Don't cry. Don't worry. I'll be rescused". She stayed very strong and her mum is extremely proud of the strength and bravery Yeseul had.
Sujung had two siblings. She was always helping with house chores. Unlike many other teens, she was happy to help out at home with cooking, cleaning, shopping and every other way she could. She loved music and was a Big Bang fan.
These two angels celebrate their birthdays today and with permission from both families, we'd like to wish Yeseul and Sujung a happy happy birthday. Although their time on earth was cut incredibly short, they touched so many lives. Happy birthday Yeseul. Happy birthday Sujung. You're always in our hearts.
