Mrs. McDevitt read Father’s speech titled “Brotherly Love” given at the former headquarters in Korea on Sunday March 30, 1968.
Father asked Mother to talk about Shin Joon Nim (who is Hyung Jin Nim’s son and always travels with True Parents. Mother said,
“You know Shin Joon, don’t you? Right after birth, I brought him up. I always took him with me even when I had the world speaking tour. He knows who his parents are but he called his grandfather and grandmother (who are True Parents) as King Father and King Mother. (Father said “He made those words.”) He is now commuting to school in Seoul from the Cheon Jeong Gung, and he usually leaves the Cheon Jeong Gung at 6:30 a.m. and comes back around 6:00 p.m. When a sister who takes care of him buys him some bread, he does not eat it and brings it untouched with him for about an hour in the car to eat with me. If he has something good, he always thinks of his King Father and King Mother. I did not educate him that way but he naturally knows it.
Among our sons and grandchildren, Shin Joon is the only one whom Father carefully treats and does not scold. Father says Shin Joon is his teacher. Shin Joon is truly sharp and he reads people’s minds.
When I was on my tour to Japan I left him to Father and he was 4 years old then. He missed me so much that he almost became sick but he, raising his right hand towards my poster, sent his energy saying to me, “Good luck King Mother.” He is a special boy. I would like to bring him up well but we are often separate and I feel sorry for him.”
Then Father asked Mother again to talk as a mother who bore 13 children. “After I gave birth to 13 children, Father said that I have 13 children which is the number 12 plus the center and so I did not have to have more children. I actually bore 14 children (Applause). People do not believe that I bore all of those 13 children and ask me ‘Did you give a birth to all of them?’ When I say yes, they are surprised.”
Father said, “It is not easy to form a family. How difficult it is for a family to be settled as the origin of history! When In Jin was born she had a big head.” Then Mother said, “In Jin was born when I was with Father on the world tour and Yeong Jin was born when I was in Germany.” Father said, “Yeong Jin had a big head too. I myself have a big head.” Finally Mother jokingly said, “It is not anybody that can become a mother.”
Mother sang “Glory Hallelujah,” and then Father sang “Free World of My Mind”, and the lyrics are found in Father’s biography (p.333-334)
