"There’s like a million different ways to say “I love you,”
“put your seat belt on,”
“watch your step,”
“get some rest,” …you’ve just got to listen."
"My father had taught me to be nice first, because you can always be mean later, but once you’ve been mean to someone, they won’t believe the nice anymore. So be nice, be nice, until it’s time to stop being nice, then destroy them."

Born and raised in Pyongyang, Ki-ok spent time in prison as a young woman because of her involvement in anti-colonial protests. She eventually fled Japanese controlled Korea and moved to China. With the approval of the Korean Provisional Government, Ki-ok entered the Republic of China Air Force School in 1923 and graduated in 1925. She was the first Korean women to hold a pilot license.
Ki-ok served in the Chinese Air Force until 1945, eventually reaching the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. Ki-ok then returned to Korea where she helped found the Republic of Korea Air Force. During the Korean War, she served in South Korea’s Ministry of National Defense before retiring from public service.

by MICHELLE WOO
Hearts around the world melted into a giant, sticky puddle of goo last month when Grace Chon’sawwwww-inducing dog-and-boy photo series, “Zoey and Jasper” went viral. But one fan was particularly captivated: Zoey’s long-lost foster mother!
Chon tells the story in a post titled, A Miracle Has Happened. “In the midst of all this viral craziness, I got a mysterious email from a woman in Colorado,” the Los Angeles-based photographer writes. “She told me that her friend knew Zoey from Taiwan when she was a baby (Zoey came to the states when she was 4.5 months old), and wanted to connect with me. Say what?! My mind was reeling — who was this woman? How did she know Zoey? Did she *REALLY* know Zoey? Was this all some crazy scam?”
