Youth Day 2020 Story
We celebrated International Youth Day 2020 with a theme Youth 4 disarmament and Youth for peace. We selected this theme,by acknowledging the 75th anniversary of the atomic bombing in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.Due to Covid19 pandemic,we decided to celebrate the day by using the online platform in a different way. We made an online campaign to make 1000 origami cranes in the memory of little Sadako Sasaki. 
 
As it is a campaign for youth,many youngsters and children participated and made 1028 Origami Cranes with hashtag #Youth4Disarmament and #Youth4Peace. Coordinating this many people together in this period was a greatest challenge.But when we announced the campaign many youngsters came forward to make it a grand success. Why do we make origami cranes??? Sadako Sasaki was a Japanese girl who became a victim of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima when she was two years old. Though severely irradiated, she survived for another ten years, becoming one of the most widely known hibakusha – a Japanese term meaning "bomb-affected person". She is remembered through the story of the one thousand origami cranes to make her wish come true but she folded 644 before her death, and is to this day a symbol of the innocent victims of nuclear warfare. With remembrance of her soul a lot of young minds made Origami Cranes with a lot of enthusiasm.
 
Traditionally, it was believed that if we fold 1000 origami cranes, one's wish would come true. It has also become a symbol of hope and healing during challenging times. Yes of course it has fulfilled our CC's wish on this pandemic period. Because of the active participation from the youth,we know that the Pandemic may have affected a lot of beautiful souls but that was not affected by our beautiful Youths hearts . The passion and the effort to join in a campaign which needs some effort shows their positive attitude to save our future. Proud to be with these superb youngsters....

A spiritual message for August 6th

Greetings,

On the 75th anniversary of the August 6th bombing of Hiroshima, please consider the spiritual message of this website:

https://secondcoming1945.com

The website shows Jesus was able to foresee the atomic “lightening” of 1945 over Hiroshima, and prophesied the event in Matthew 24: 27-28 as the sign of his Second Coming.  That may seem like a wild assertion.  Please visit the site and decide for yourself.

I would welcome any comments you might have.

Peace,

Tom Sage

Historic Biases of Race and Racism to be Addressed in Real Time

There is a current tag line that reflects the historic biases of race and racism that have their roots in 17th century colonialism in America that says, ”The system is not broken.  It was built this way.  These biases, both implied and overt, are the historic threads woven into the fabric of racism, blanketing and suffocating our society with a heavy and dense darkness, that are comprised of the time-tested characteristics of supremacy and exploitation.  The real time opportunity before us is to enter into the honest and transparent conversations regarding racial biases and how supremacy and exploitation have poisoned the well from which we all drink. The question before us is:  who will gather the table of goodwill participants and partners to enter into these soul-revealing conversations designed to move the community to the implementation of action steps to bring justice, fairness, and equality to our society and help usher in the Beloved Community envisioned by the ancients and expressed by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr?

We Shall Overcome!

Through a series of drafts, thoughts, tears, and endless frustrations, we have been unable to verbalize the way we feel towards our current political climate and inaction of the leaders of the United States as well as the world. We empathize, recognize, and fight against what has seemed to be a never-ending battle of race, inequality, and state-sanctioned injustice.  We have refrained from writing our personal feelings and our own thoughts about the travesties of death and violence. Words simply don’t feel strong enough to change policy or to console the people in our communities during these tumultuous times. Nothing ever feels strong enough in these moments.

Cultural Diplomacy and Poetry

Conveying to the foreign other

A sincere aspect of culture

Requires one to look toward the inner

Gaze further,

Bring to sound a melody that is quintessentially pure~

Wandering Poetry

Existing not in one place

Related to not just one race

Wandering at a changing pace

Poems floating eternally in the problematized space~

Poetry and Gender

Girl or guy,

Male or female,

Poetry is not sly,

It simply has multiple answers to the word why,

More variety than the clouds floating through our shared sky~

Gender roles have experienced much critique and criticism over the years. Nowadays feminism is also resurging. In various countries, people are identifying unbalanced gender issues in their respective societies and are making movements toward eliminating such unfair practices and habitual mannerisms.
