Souvenir Picture Taken in Front of Heroine's Bust
Pyongyang, December 28 (KCNA) -- President Kim Il Sung visited the Revolutionary Martyrs Cemetery on Mt. Taesong with officials on a day of December Juche 71 (1982).

Looking at busts of anti-Japanese revolutionary fighters and recollecting their names and merits one by one, he stopped in front of the bust of anti-Japanese heroine Kim Jong Suk.

After having his eyes glued to her bust for a while, looking back upon her life, he suggested to the officials having a picture taken in front of her bust.

The officials stepped up to him to pose for a picture. The moment when a cameraman was going to press the shutter, however, the President asked him in a low voice if the bust was seen well.

The cameraman answered in the affirmative, feeling tears welling up in his eyes.

From that day the 65th birth anniversary of the heroine was only a few days off.
