Unforgettable Day in Mangyongdae Native Place

 
President Kim Il Sung paid a visit to Mangyongdae, his birthplace, on October 14, 1945 following the liberation after 20 years’ absence.
It was a place dear to his heart he pictured in his mind with the song “Nostalgia” while fighting his way across tens of thousands of ri in the bloody war against the Japanese imperialists.
His grandfather came out in the courtyard barefoot and hugged him saying, “My eldest grandson has come home…”and kept repeating these words in tears. His grandmother, too, burst into tears, saying, “Why have you come alone? Where have you left your father and mother? ”
Grief-stricken with the family members who didn’t come together with the President in that honorable day, grandparents could not keep back their tears flowing down on their cheek.
The President said them that day, that he was so sorry that he neglected his filial duty.
His grandfather replied that the President fulfilled his filial duty by accomplishing the cause of Korean independence, which his father left unfinished and taking care of the country and people was the greatest filial service
That night, the President shared the bed with the grandparents.
At the time, his grandmother told him that now that the country was free, the graves of his parents had to be moved from the alien land to the home country.
The President fully understood how much she wanted to bring home the remains of her children who were buried in an alien land.
However, he explained her that he had a work prior to the transfer of his parents’ graves, that was, to see the benefactors such as Mr. Hwang and old man Kim on the Kaduk Pass from Jonju who helped his father to escape at the Yonphori Inn, Also an  old man called Jo who saved him from the jaws of death when he had a bad chill.
His grandmother praised him that his father in grave would be delighted, too.
The day he spent with his grandparents in his birthplace implies the lofty patriotic family tradition of President Kim Il Sung and Mangyongdae family preceding the filial duty by the duty for the country and people
