Jan. 15,2017-Thinking back over the year 2016, we realize it was a most difficult and divisive year. Daily we heard the news, reports, and saw pictures of the suffering and death of hundreds - thousands of people and among the most vulnerable - the children. Now more than ever we need to reconnect to all that matters and is important to our families, nations, the world. Let us pray, bless and think positively about respect for life, common basic needs, peace,and hope for all especially the children - our future Blessings to all in 2017. Quote from Jing Si Aphorisms Dharma Master Cheng Yen "A fulfilling life is not preoccupied with material objects, prestige, or power. It is a life that is filled with true friendships, sharing and caring for each other."
