You gave so much and took so little. Your people don't really know you or hear your words. They still don't tell the truth. They lost sight of you and your way of truth. If you could come back once more to teach...
도산 Dosan means Island Mountain.
"One final ingredient which entered the mold that produced Dosan, the nationalist leader, was a sense of personal destiny as a leader, a pioneer, someone destined to stand out, and possibly, stand alone. This sense was reflected in his choice of his pen name when he observed the lonely splendor of the Hawaiian peaks towering from the vastness of the surrounding ocean."

Dosan Ahn Chang Ho's life is a clear example of right action and honesty. His leadership, love of his country and service to his countrymen was sincere. Dosan stopped Japanese Genocide from obliterating Korea's culture, its history and its people. His patriotic leadership against the Japanese Occupation of Asia is the main reason Korea is an independent nation. If it wasn't for Dosan's incredible sacrifices Korea would be part of Japan today!
