“Life is to become a briquette, gladly for somebody else”
(a verse from “A Piece of Briquette” by Do-hyun Kim) is one of the most well-known poem verses in Korea about love
and self-sacrifice. With the holiday season upon us, now is the perfect time to spread love and kindness to our neighbors.
On November 3, more than 80 lawyers and staffs of DR & AJU gathered in Guryong Maeul (Guryong Village) to deliver
3,200 coal briquettes to the residents of the Village for coming winter.
Although it was not an easy job to deliver all 3,200 briquettes through narrow and rugged roads,
the members of DR & AJU worked as a team and successfully delivered all of them with zero broken briquette.
While covered in dirt and soot from carrying and piling briquettes, the DR & AJU members took this opportunity
to think about the true meaning of sharing and the value of each briquette to the residents of the Village.
“Do not kick ashes from briquettes.
Ever been fiery for somebody else
Once in your life”
(Do-hyun Ahn, “I Ask You”)
