President Ikeda has also said that women will place an important part of world peace. When I first heard that, I was 20 years old. It has taken me since then, 35 plus years, to realize in my life what that means to me.
I see from a previous writing that you are in Orange County? Is that correct? I also practiced in Santa Ana. I lived all over that Westminster area, Costa Mesa, etc. If it were not for those sweet little Japanese ladies, I would not be practicing. When I moved to Santa Ana from Arizona, where I joined in 1969, I called the community center. Within 30 minutes - no exaggeration - there were 4 Japanese ladies on my front stoop. That was it. They got hold of me and continued to support me no matter how bad I got. And I got pretty bad......
I think women will continue to be the behind the scenes support for world peace. The home is where world peace starts. And as you probably already know, "if Momma ain't happy, no body is happy"......tee hee hee.
Hi. I think I meet you about 12 years ago when I first moved to Westminster. I came over to your house and chanted with you once. I was new to the practice. This is when I was first getting into the Air Conditioning industry. I went to a mens division meeting where I met a guy who had his own company and worked with him a few times. I forget his name. Thank you for the help with my practice during a tough time.
