Ethiopia, the outer slums of Addis Ababa.
In an open field outside of Addis Ababa, 50,000 Ethiopian citizens and government workers sat around a large stage. On the stage, a peace choir of Ethiopian and Korean children sang the song "Arirang" in a soothing tone.
As the tranquil song rang out, a group of old men sang along with the bits they remembered from 60 years ago. Tears ran down their faces. These men had left their home country of Ethiopia, journeyed to Korea in the far East, and fought for democracy in the Korean War.
