On June 18, 2004 a beloved convience store owner was murdered in Toronto. This story touches me as my parents were once recently convience store owners and worked the daily grind. Also, that my parents also knew this man. For last 24 years of my life I have always worried when my father worked late hours or when my mother was at the store long periods of time alone. This nightmare as become someones reality and I have so much sadness for this family. I have a lump in my throat thinking about this tragedy knowing how much he worked so hard for his family and something like this ending his life too short. I know how hard Korean parents work and the struggle that persists in their daily lives. How they strive for their children to be educated and live a good life. All this for something like this to happen. I pray to God that his killer is found and some type of peace is given to this family.
may your soul rest in peace
