Regarding the recent conflict between Palestine and Israel

I am filled with uncontrollable sadness, anger, and compassion as I hear reports of human lives being trampled on with such ease due to Hamas’s terrorist acts and abductions that have broken out the other day, and Israel’s air strikes on Gaza in response. I’m tormented by this.

While Russia’s Putin’s violent and barbarous acts against Ukraine have not ended, another catastrophe that shakes the world has occurred, and movements that are far from building world peace are underway.

Japan, the only country to have suffered from atomic bombings and a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, must immediately send a strong message and take action to stop the killings and violence.

We are planning a peace event in the near future, and we look forward to your participation and support!

We believe that we have entered an era in which humankind can embrace the spirituality of great kindness, where people do not kill others, deny violence, and can resolve everything through discussion. Let’s move!
We need to accelerate and work hard!

It is time for each of us to fulfill our responsibility as one part of the puzzle of world peace, which is made up of 8 billion pieces!
