365 Days of Justice

Today, all those lies and malicious slanders have been put to rest, and the truth has triumphed. The mentors and disciples of Soka have won. Today across the globe, the Soka Gakkai and its first three presidents are highly praised and regarded as shining lights of hope for all humanity.

SGM Pioneer Award

Region chief just emailed out the finalized list of SGM Pioneer award recipients today. I went through those old yet familiar names. These were the uncles & aunties that frequented my house when I was still little. These were the uncles and aunties who had fought for the Justice of Gakkai when I was still sitting on my mum laps when attending meetings. These were the uncles and aunties that risked their life for Gakkai when I was still debating whether wanna come out for Gakkai activities or not.

I had the privilege to hand the award invitation to Dato' & Datin Ch'ng, Mrs. Khoo & Mr. Lai. I read to them the significant of this award stated in the letter, I am not too sure how they feel but I felt proud being able to be in an organization that was built by these pioneers. Yes! I felt so proud that day being able to hand those invitation letters to them personally.

Among the 50 pioneer award recipient names, one of them is my father. Even though he has stopped coming out to Gakkai activities now, but he has been given me his silent support through the freedom in participating in Gakkai activities that I enjoyed today. I may be very discrete in our connection in Gakkai activities, but I am really proud to be his son who fought for the Justice of Gakkai in the 60s and 70s. And now I has the great fortune to carry on this legacy today!

Being the second generation on Soka Spirit, I am doing my best to impart this legacy to the youth divisions and many generations to come. I believe this is the tradition of Gakkai, tradition of Selangor.
