Such a Person

There is nothing more inspiring than seeing a young person on a mission to improve himself constantly, introspecting and reflecting on his situation with an open mind and a seeking spirit, and rebounding from even the worst of situations with new resolve and optimism. Nothing more inspiring than seeing such a person's journey from frustration and desperation towards strength and hope. 

I am sure such a person and others like him will solve this world's myriad problems because they surmount the obstacles within themselves as a means to solve seemingly external problems. Such a person proves that beauty, hope and growth are possible in any situation.

It is about such a person that Daisaku Ikeda wrote "A great human revolution in just a single individual will help achieve a change in the destiny of a nation, and further, can even enable a change in the destiny of all humankind.”

I am the mother of such a person.


  1. I agree with you. I too have such a daughter.

  2. Hai mom such nice thing to say! I don't agree with it, but love you for saying it.

  3. Why do you belittle yourself so Fujia? You have had a positive influence on Atreya, I'm sure and he watched you as you handled your struggles, and learnt from that experience. You have played an important role in him becoming the wonderful young man he is, and I'm so glad Aunty is proud of who you and he are, and I am too. I am happy to celebrate all you wonderful people - 3 generations!
