And the Year of The Women Continues!!!
“I congratulate you on the victory, the path to which you faced many obstacles to overcome,” Lee Myung-bak said as he congratulated the First Female to be a leader of South Korea, Park Geun-Hye!
How extremely exciting is this?!
Park Geun-Hye, is the daughter of former leader Park Chung-Hee. She defeated Moon Jae-in with over 52% of the votes, with over 80% of the votes in.
I don’t know a lot about Park Guen-Hye, but I can’t wait to learn more about her as she takes her seat as leader in February. As the first woman to be elected to a male dominated nation, her leadership will be looked at very closely, simply because she is a woman. I for one will be sending her thoughts of strength as she goes through these next 5 years. As Lee Myaun-bak said, she has overcome many obstacles, and I know that there will be more ahead.
She has made promises to bring South Korea out of economic decline as well as strengthen diplomatic relations with N.Korea. Two things that I personally would like to see happen for South Korea. Only time will tell.
But for now Butterflies, let us rejoice in this historic time and celebrate the bright new wings of our sister, Park Geun-Hye!!
Butterfly Kisses and Heartfelt Congratulations to Park Geun-Hye from the Butterfly Bridge!
