This 2 part video is a speech that was given by the Senator Paull Shin of Washington State at the Korean American Community Foundation's (KACF) 5th Annual Gala in October, 2010. Senator Shin shared his story as an adopted Korean war orphan, leaving behind his home country and the challenges of growing up in his adopted country. As an orphan in Korea, the closest thing to family he had was another boy who was his best friend. Senator Shin's recounting of the story of his best friend is poignant and tragic. He was eventually adopted by an American GI, and he went on to receive his GED, MA and PhD in Washington. After 31 years as a professor, he entered public service and become a Senator of his home state.
It's a powerful and inspirational story that will move you. The video is used with permission from KACF (http://www.kacfny.org).
