Last night, I blogged about Dong Yun Yoon, the extraordinary American who lost his wife, toddler daughter Rachel, infant daughter Grace, and mother-in-law in the military jet crash in San Diego.
Reader David talked to Yoon’s pastor, who said you can send card and help directly to his church.
Here’s the address:
Dong Yun Yoon
c/o Rev. Kevin Lee
Korean United Methodist Church
3520 Mount Acadia Blvd
San Diego, CA 92111
His faith and patriotism have touched so many of us so deeply. Take a moment to help lift him up.
Here are photos of the beautiful family he lost:
And here’s some video of the press conference in case you missed it:
The LORD is my shepherd,
I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
He restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
Reader D.M e-mails:
My nephew is in the squadron the plane came from. They want to attend the funeral and express their sorrow to Mr. Yoon, but are worried about reactions from some people there. Their public affairs is advising them on how to proceed.
It would be helpful though on your website if you note that the pilot didn’t accidentally kill anybody. His plane failed. The pilot made no error of any kind we can discern.
I feel for this family, especially since my wife is the former Carol Yoon. With the gracious kindness and sympathy that Mr. Dong Yun Yoon himself has shown, he can only be considered as having a beautiful soul. Having grown up in the Marine Corps community and having served for many years as did my two older brothers and my father did, and my nephew does now,
I can assure you that Mr. Yoon’s pain will be felt by Marine families across the globe. They will reach out to him in both kindness and generosity. And they will be there for him during the long period of sorrow he will face.
Thanks for your care both for the military and our nation as a whole.
