Herr Klaus!

Long time no see. I'm still learning German and I underwent the German level check (Dokuken, 独検) last month. I'm sure I'll receive the 4th grade certificate. I'm going to step up to the 3rd grade to enjoy German bier and wine. By the way, my youngest daughter lives in your city. She is a medical student. So, I have opportunities to visit you. My German vocabulary is poor yet, but if I can chat with you in German, it's great. I have to learn Korean now for some reason and I'll restart learning German in late April. See you some day.

Doc! - good job! Yes, volunteers is still written in big letters over here in Japan. And I am sure many people appreciate your efforts!!

Dear Shiroi_Tora

Thanks. I'm delighted to receive your comment.

The number of people who showed up is a testament to the unity, and the power derived from that unity, of a group of people with a sense of purpose.

It is even more heartening to see people living their beliefs through their efforts.

The type of people who give to others through their skills and efforts are the best type to be around. They are unselfish in nature, and conscious of the social bond that makes a community.

That is the type of effort that grows the soul. It is so good to see it in others (Although it is no surprise...the Japanese are known throughout the world as being some of the most socially conscious people...ones who's great strength lay in their ability to work together...their sense of teamwork).
