Let’s support and encourage friends who
are making a fresh start at a new
school, a new job or a new residence.
Remember, “Fortune comes from one’s heart
and makes one worthy of respect.”(*)
Let’s hold our heads high and advance
on our mission along the path of
blossoming cherry trees.

[Note: Japan is famous for its cherry trees that bloom magnificently throughout the country in spring.]
