“I believe there is no such thing as a purposeless life. Everyone has something precious in themselves that no one else has.”

“The way to truly cherish the lives of the past is to live our lives to the full in a way that would make them proud.”

- Her Holiness Shinso Ito.

A single candle can illuminate the darkness and bring hope. Each of us can make a difference and together we will shine even more brightly.
