Dog Meat Trade
Dear Consulate Staff,

Can I have your attention please ?
Dogs are wonderful animals, and we humans must be grateful for al the help they give us.
They are used for helping disabled people, blind humans ,as companions for elderly people. There are drug detecting dogs , rescue dogs, they can even detect cancer in humans. But apart from being so useful, they are man's best friend !

And what are the South Korean people doing with these lovely animals ,dogs and cats also ? They are eating them !

But before being eaten, they have to suffer atrociously . They have to live in extremely small cages . And at the end of their miserable lives, they are tortured , skinned alive, cooked alive and/or their fur is burned off alive. It makes me cry.

I can feel that you must be ashamed that your people are committing such barbaric acts against animals.

Do not ignore it. Ignoring is even worse than doing it.

Mahatma Gandhi once said, "The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated”

Sincerely, with much respect,
John Curtin

Korea Reborn Book
I posted at least three emails asking about acquiring a free copy of this book, since I am a Korean War Veteran. This book is SUPPOSED to be available from any Korean Consulate Office, to any veteran of the Korean War.
I have NOT received any answer or reply to these messages. I find it very inconsiderate and impolite that no one ever bothered to reply, no less send a copy of the book.
