From the Dalai Lama on Gratitude .. "Every day, think as you wake I am fortunate to be alive. I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others. I am not going to get angry or think badly of others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can." I want to take the opportunity to acknowledge the outstanding efforts being made by the 2018 AIAIA delegation. The level of engagement with our South African friends is outstanding. We have been warmly welcomed and our days are long and filled with human encounter. We are blessed. James Cassidy, President of Arm In Arm In Africa
