a mindful 6/25 to you

In all the bustle, I forgot that today was yugio, a.k.a. six-two-five (yuk-i-o in Korean), or the 25th of June. On this date in 1950, the Korean War began. The main war lasted until 1953; there's been an armistice since then, i.e., a cease-fire (that is violated routinely), but the two Koreas are still technically at war. That's what all the current hubbub is about: finally ending the war. Can it happen? Personally, I doubt it. But we'll see.

(Yugio has nothing to do with Yu-Gi-Oh!)
