Catch the Dharma

Reverend Harada  talks about the wisdom he can learn from his mother, who survived World War I, the Great Depression  as well an internment camps during World War II.   Perhaps we too can rise to the occasion and survive this pandemic with grace, dignity and fortitude by developing a sense of responsibility towards others rather than merely weighing the risk for ourselves.
