Jun 25, 2012First I would like to say how much I appreciate that Tim’s collection of college essay’s were compiled into a book for all to read, rather than thrown in the nearest wastebasket, where many great college essay’s end up. Tim’s writing on important necessary social change and modern Buddhist thought was profound, with a thoughtful, intellectual approach to understanding many modern day problems such as environmental destruction and corporate excess. Many of Tim’s essays focused on the corruption and bias that exists in our monetary capitalistic society while others document racial disparity and the vicious cycle of destruction and greed found in policy’s affecting the future of our planet. I especially enjoyed the art, literature and wonderful Buddhist theory papers. The essays awaken the reader to Soka spirit and SGI President Ikeda’s dream of realizing world peace and happiness on Earth by applying Buddhist values and principles to daily life. There was so much beneficial, sourced... More > information in the essays that I will personally reference the material for years to come. The book identifies that the conservative approach of turning a blind eye to human suffering and environmental catastrophe for the sake of economics and personal safety is outdated and not applicable in today’s fragile world. Our planet requires thousands of new voices worldwide united in the cause for peace, speaking truths that Tim identifies in these essays in order to change the world, one persons lion’s roar at a time! The essays remind me that thousands of voices are needed that don’t accept social injustices or the status quo. No one can escape global warming, pollution, ocean destruction, glacier melting, oil spills and nuclear radiation. These essays overall gave me the important message of saying to myself “what can I do?”; now is the time to stand up for change, not in fifty years from now when the effects of human and environmental catastrophe are predicted to cause irreversible damage and Earth’s carrying capacity is at its maximum. Again I am so appreciative and fortunate to have read such an invigorating and meaningful group of essays written by a Soka University honors student!< Less
