Hoon Sook Nim delivering her moving speech
Dear Mother and Father, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Please accept my deep gratitude for the Blessing with Heung Jin Nim, who was one of the Heavenly Princes while he was on earth. Now, he is a King in the spirit world, representing our True Parents.
I will never forget in my whole life and for eternity this greatest honor of being Heung Jin Nim's bride, which I do not deserve.
Father and Mother, I now pledge to become a faithful wife to Heung Jin Nim, with the highest respect and love. I shall attend him with my heart and soul forever, while I am on earth and later in Heaven. I shall also pledge that I will become a faithful daughter of our True Parents.
Mother, I have a special appeal to you today. I know you have shed endless tears after the passing of Heung Jin Nim. I feel so deeply your sorrow in sending your beloved son prematurely to spirit world. He passed away in place of our Father. He sacrificed his life for the world and mankind. I want to give you comfort and love. Please look at me... my smiling face every day. And please, kindly shed no more tears. I will serve you faithfully in place of Heung Jin Nim and I will live joyfully and happily for you, Mother, the life span that Heung Jin Nim did not live during his brief time here on earth. I will live in the place of Heung Jin Nim with strength, dignity, with honor and love, which was the symbol of Heung Jin Nim's life.
Father and Mother, please do not worry about me even a little. I will be strong. I will be happy and, most important, I will never be lonely because I have your love.
Father and Mother, I will love all the True Children; I will unite especially with In Jin Nim, who has been blessed today with my own brother. I will become your joy and your pride along with the other True Children.
I will also make an absolute effort to pursue my artistic training, so that I will become a great artist representing our True Parents in the artistic world.
Father and Mother, once again I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am the happiest girl in the entire world. I have no way to repay all the blessings you gave me except to love you will all my heart, all my mind, all my soul.
Now I want to give my thanks and appreciation to my physical parents. Thank you for giving me this life and for bringing me up until now, so that I can receive this most wonderful blessing. Mom, I will never forget your love.
My brother, Jin Sung Nim, please accept my heartfelt congratulations for your blessing with In Jin Nim, who is one of the finest princesses of True Parents. I love In Jin Nim very much and I will unite with her always.
Father and Mother, I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to Ye Jin Nim, Jin Whi Nim, Hyo Jin Nim, Nan Sook Nim, Un Jin Nim, Hyun Jin Nim, Kook Jin Nim, Kwon Jin Nim, Sun Jin Nim, Young Jin Nim, Hyung Jin Nim, Yeon Jin Nim, Jeong Jin Nim -- all my new brothers and sisters. I am so honored and happy to become a member of the family of our True Parents with all these wonderful True Brothers and Sisters. I know Heung Jin Nim is here with me today, and that he is also as happy as I am.
Now I would like to thank all leaders and members of the Unification Church worldwide. I thank you for your prayers and your care and love for Heung Jin Nim. Also, I want to thank all of you who worked so hard to make this beautiful celebration possible. I know Heung Jin Nim will always be with you.
Finally, I would like to pray for a long, long life for our True Parents. Father and Mother, once again, thank you -- thank you for choosing me to become Heung Jin Nim's bride and your daughter. Father and Mother, I pledge that I will become the joy and pride of the True Parents' family. I love you both very much...
Thank you very much.
I just wanted to say one more thing. I don't want you to misunderstand the reason why I cried. It is because I feel so unworthy of this blessing that True Parents have given me. And I am just so overwhelmed with the love our True Parents have given me and all the True Children have loved me so much even just these past few days. I will truly do my very best, Father and Mother, to serve you in the place of Heung Jin Nim, and serve all my brothers and sisters.
