What is needed now more than ever is to forge the kind of solidarity that transcends every difference, from nation-states and ethnicities to thought and religion, and to create a sustainable global society in which the dignity of all people is secured.
Let’s spread friendship like the wind. Let’s sow the seed of collaboration like the earth. Let’s give like the sun. Let’s fight injustice and prejudice angrily and fiercely. Let’s be kind to each other, kind.
Now more than ever, I ask you to manifest the true value of Soka’s global citizens, doing so in good cheer with wisdom and resilience, to brighten our world in this century from the stage of your respective mission in life.
