[LETTERS TO THE EDITOR]Sing all the anthemI had the pleasure of participating in the inaugural ceremony of President Roh Moo-hyun. I was pleased to hear the president’s promise to do his best to make Korea the hub of Asia. I also felt that the ceremony being simple and concise, reflecting the pain and mourning due to the Daegu subway disaster, was a good decision.
I have just one complaint. Our national anthem is four verses long, but only the first verse of the anthem was sung. Why? Many of our youth do not know the entire anthem, and I think all verses should be sung at government ceremonies.
