We do need to make efforts, to guide people even just a little bit into the right direction. Luckily the world is also filled with hope. especially young people, who have the energy and hope for a better future, those young people we can support and guide through our own experience in the right direction. They have not had to suffer through hurt and pain in society. There is a accupuncture doctor close to Sogenji in Japan who always say, as much poison as there is in the world, equally to that there is also the right medicine to neutralize these poinsons. Babies are our hope, being born in a complicated situation made by adults, we need to make sure to not have their young hope squashed by the difficult world.
