New Start

March 1st, 2011. It can be said that it was one of they huge turing points of my life. It was the day of the entrance ceremony for my new high school, Korean Minjok Leadership Academy. Well, I still do not feel like being a real freshmen, but still ceremony itself was an impressive moment.

This entrance ceremony was something you wouldn’t be able to see in the entire life. It was very memorable. The ceremony started with the performance of ‘Euiryedan’, a KMLA group who plays traditional music on most official school ceremonies. The song was very lively and colorful, for the melody was bright and like birds chirping. Behind the ‘Euiryedan’ came the flag bearers, holding the national flag and school flags high. Seeing this sight, I sort of felt proud in becoming a member of the high school family. The ceremony followed with congratualatory messages and rituals.

One of the interesting part of the entrance ceremony was the short performance of school’s traditional music club, “Daechita.” Seniors were dressed up in bright yellow traditional clothes. It was facinating to hear a traditional music in an entrance ceremony. It was follwed by the Korean Independence Declaration, which really awakened us the values of KMLA. Next, there was the candlelight ceremony, another grand sight. It was a symbol that students would become candlelights of future and hope. The grand finale was another traditional music club “Samuchim.” The strong beats of  percussion instruments shaked our souls.

In a short day, many things happened, all equially important and fascinating.  The ceremony itself was splendid, just like KMLA itself. It was one unforgettable event of my life.
