The tragedy of the Sewol ferry, especially the loss of so many young people, has shocked the world. In this moment of complete anguish we hesitate to intrude into your inner world, therefore in silent empathy, we offer our solidarity, and pray that this can alleviate the excruciating pain.

From the Government and people of South Africa especially our youth and students.

We are witnessing with deep sadness and sorrow the aftermath of the Sewol tragedy.

Today, more than ever, we are feeling like Korean citizens. It is almost impossible to express our sentiments in this dire situation.

One word springs up, however, into our minds, spontaneously: solidarity.

On behalf of the Embassy of the Republic of Kazakhstan I would like to express our most sincere condolences to those affected by the tragic sinking of the ferry Sewol. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the Korean people at this time of great loss and tragedy.

The Embassy of the Finland in Seoul would like to present its sincere condolences to Korean people following the disaster of ferry Sewol. This tragedy has touched deeply the Finnish people who feel strong empathy with Koreans.

We know the pain and sorrow the Korean nation is going through as it grieves and recovers from this tragedy. We do remember well a similar accident in the Baltic Sea in 1994. The sinking of MS Estonia was the biggest shipwreck disaster occurred in the Baltic Sea in peacetime, costing 852 lives.

I am deeply saddened and overwhelmed by Sewol sinking and the loss of so many lives including young ones. On behalf of the Embassy of Mongolia and my own, I extend our deepest condolences to the families of victims and all the Korean people. We will pray and our hearts will remain with everyone who suffered from this tragedy.

On behalf of ABB, I would like to express our deepest sympathy for the victims of the tragic Sewol ferry accident and their families. This is a very dark time for the families and Koreans in general. The families are going through a very tough time but we hope that they can find solace and take care of themselves. Hopefully this will lead to a Korean mindset where something like this will never ever happen again.

The Government and the people of Sri Lanka including our Sri Lankan community in the Republic of Korea have been deeply saddened by the Sewol ferry disaster. H.E. Mahinda Rajapaksa, President of Sri Lanka has written to H.E.

Park Geun-hye, President of the Republic of Korea conveying his sympathies to the Government and the people of the Republic of Korea.

I also take this opportunity on behalf of my fellow workers of the Embassy and the entire Sri Lankan community living and employing in this country to extend our deepest condolences to the people of Korea and the families of the Sewol catastrophe, particularly for those who have lost their loved family members.

I have no doubt that this is an extremely difficult time for the families of the victims. It is our profound wish that the rescue efforts will be successful and those who are still missing will be able to go back to their families as soon as possible.

It is our great expectation that the families of the victims may find strength and courage as our thoughts and prayers are with them at this hour of grief. It is my final thought that those who rescued of the disaster with wounds may recover soon.

After the tragic event last Thursday we are all very saddened and lost in our feelings as the country grieves for its lost souls.

The anger mixed with powerless sentiments are heightened because the tragedy touched mainly the most defenseless people of the country : its children. Yet there is still hope for a miracle to happen and employees of Zuellig Pharma Korea wish to send you this yellow ribbon sharing that hope.

We extend our deepest condolences to all and wish on these dark days for angels to be by the side of those in sorrow and would like to ask for a minute of silence as you read this article to pray for the lost souls, their families and friends.

Finally we would like to conclude with this beautiful quote of hope : Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on, and cherished memories never fade because a loved ones gone. Those we love can never be more that a thought apart. For as long there is a memory, theyll live on in our hearts.
