— TO MY FRIENDS —
All of our Future Division members
( primarily primary and secondary school young people)
are the priceless treasures of humankind
and to all of those members who have the role of
looking after and fostering these young people,
may I say thank you from the bottom of my heart
for all your efforts.
You are indeed distinguished dedicated people
who are truly supporting the development of a new era.

“No one in Japan had any hope for the future in the period immediately after the end of World War II. But Mr. Toda declared that in five or ten years time, even the most painful hardship would seem like it had been a dream. He encouraged us, saying: ‘You absolutely must not let lifes hardships crush or defeat you. If you can do that, youll definitely be able to look back with a vibrant spirit someday and say that youre truly glad you kept going at that time.’

“​There might be occasions in life when we feel discouraged, thinking weve come to the end of the roadBut the more trying the times we face, the more we need to strengthen the mentor-disciple spirit within us and forge ahead together with our fellow membersto realise peace and create a world where all life can shine.”
