We need to cultivate a state of life where we can thoroughly enjoy ourselves at all times. We should have such joy that even at the time of death we can declare with a happy smile: “That was wonderful! Where shall I go next?” Faith enables us to attain the kind of generous and all-embracing state of mind where we enjoy everything in our lives. Daisaku Ikeda

In the coming months, I will also be coordinating various Charity Events to raise funds for Multiple Myeloma Awareness. This is a rare cancer disease that many people are unaware of and proceeds generated from these events will be to be donated to the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, St. Jude Children's Cancer Hospital along with medical missions for the needy in the Philippines. Thank you for your continued prayers and support for our families and support of this cause!
