Korean Children’s View of Japan

In this Korean news article, you can see pictures drawn by Korean kids to express how they feel about Japan's recent claims over the Dokdo islet. Disturbing?

If it's any comfort, I was one of those kids myself. I don't remember a specific moment it happened, but the seed of hate was planted deeply. Even now, I can feel it, lodged deep within my heart between pride and shame. Thankfully, the hate is mostly directed against certain people whose behaviors fit the evil profile we were brainwashed to hate. I can only hope today's Korean children feel the same.
