Delete Post Manage Blog I am glad for those that got to see this event and experience the melding of humanity. As a former insider of Capitol Hill I can tell all of you that the words of Dr. King kept wispering in my head as I watched this event. In one speech he spoke the words that "there are some difficult days ahead." These words could not be more phophetic and true at the same time with the current state of our country. "I pray that one day a person will be judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." This could not be more true with this election and installation of the first truely African American as President of our country. "I Have A Dream" The words in that speech have come to pass and now we as a people and as a nation must not let humanity down.

We MUST uphold the truth and and act upon the words. We have now seen generations of all ages wake up from their slumber, wipe off the cobb webs of inequity, injustice, racism, sexism, despair, and degredation. We are now OBLIGATED to enebreate them all with the tools to reshape america, to reform the minds of the world to enact upon the task that is before us. We must show the world that we as a nation has changed for the better. With this grand inaugural event that has taken place we must "hold these truths to be self evident" that indeed finally all men and women are created equal. We have so far given those that are watching us from a distance that we do indeed have an Audacity to Hope and the Audacity to make sure this nation rises up to the call.

We must all do our part. This is no longer a black issue it has become a national cause beyond the rainbow.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
