Most of the nation celebrated the day off in honor of Children's Day.
But this year the festive occasion comes with a heavy collective heart over the tragic loss of so many young lives in the Sewol-ho ferry sinking.
The president reached out to children on social media this holiday by posting a message on her Facebook page which reads, "to all children on this Children's
Day I hope you are healthy, grow up brilliantly and on this day be blessed."
Though the post didn't mention the Sewol-ho ferry disaster she reportedly canceled all of her previously scheduled Children's Day activities to focus on the rescue operation and investigation.
