Rahki, no worry, I have not been on this site in a while myself. Moreover, I stopped frequenting facebook. Nowadays, I mostly email people directly without the aid of a "site." Anyway, how are you/ If you got obstacles then I know you're alright and doing your human revolution, which is of prime importance. At this moment, I am watching "America's Got Talent." You know the program is being taped right here in Newark. I sure for Houston that is not a big thing, but for Newark which is a town of about 150,000 residents (mostly African and Hispanic Americans), it's prtetty huge. In addition, I think it shows how Nichiren Buddhism is effecting my city. We have only had districts set up in Newark for about seventeen years now and my how this city has changed. Just last year, Newark sponsored a peace conference where the Dali Illama attended. It was great and a big step toward peace in Newark. I believe kosen-rufu must start in the U.S. as President Ikeda predicts and I believe if kosen-rufu happens first in Newark the the stage is set for worldwide kosen-rufu. I always chant that kosen-rufu to occur with minorities like African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Gays leading the way because these are the most oppressed groups in the world. Well, enough of my babble. I thank you for reaching out.
