A tribute to Michelle Kwan, a great skater and gracious person. While she fell short of her quest to win Olympic Gold in 1998, 2002 and 2006,(withdrew) Michelle remains the most decorated US skater and one of the most loved. She is a reminder that a true winner is determined not by medals or accomplishments, but by character. Song is by Heather Headley.
“In order to develop the country one needs to work systematically starting from the construction of the foundation, that is, that the people have livelihoods sufficient to support their basic human needs. This must be carried out in an economical and practical manner based upon academic principles. Once a strong foundation is achieved it then becomes feasible to develop higher levels of modernization.”
His Majesty’s royal speech. 19 July 1974.
HM the King stresses that development is based on self support, reasonable consumption and living in moderation. His Majesty advises his people not to be overindulgent but to be truthful and just. This principle is known as Sufficiency Economics which is self support on the family level and unity and harmony within their community in both the private and public sectors linking to outside community’s business systems.
“If the rural area thrives the country as a whole will too.” is part of a guideline speech graciously given by His Majesty the King to private and government sectors cooperating in seriously researching to develop Thai agriculture. His Majesty realizes that agriculture is the true foundation to the kingdom’s sustainable development.
It is clear that His Majesty’s wide vision has brought the country out of numerous economic crises in which the people of Thailand of all walks of life had to re-consider the previous direction of national development.
The philosophy of sufficient economy graciously given by His Majesty the King is the perfect model of the middle path life style where the individual learns to work deligently, utilising his resources to the utmost benefit, realising his capability and leading an organized life consuming sufficiently within his means.
In order to remain close to his subjects and to improve their way of life His Majesty the King has made only one trip in the past three decades outside the Kingdom, in 2538, to neighboring People’s Democratic Republic of Laos. Although priority is given to his internal royal duties His Majesty has never neglected his obligation to strengthen the kingdom’s relationships with other countries by receiving other royal heads of states and by graciously granting audience to all foreign ambassadors upon submission of their credentials as well as bidding them a personal farewell as their tenure of duty ends.
Although His Majesty continuously works hard to improve his subjects’ wellbeing and quality of life his compassion and diplomatic ingenuity plays an important role in strengthening the bonds between Thailand and other countries.
To this day many Thais remember the touching performance of the song written by His Majesty the King titled “Porn Pi Mai” or “New Year Blessings” on New Year’s eve of 2494. Yet few realize that this was not the first song that he has written for the people of Thailand.
His Majesty is a master of a variety of musical instruments. Since his youth he has written his own songs whenever time was available. The first song written by His Majesty was in the blues genre entitled ‘Saeng Tian’ or ‘Candle Light’. It was written in 2489.
Since then His Majesty has written many more songs which he has graciously permitted Kru Ua Suntornsanan to perform be performed by his Suntaraporn orchestra.
The Vienna Institute of Music and Art presented His Majesty the King with an honorary membership on his official visit to Austria in 2507. His Majesty is the first musician from the continent of Asian to be accorded this unique honor. This is a confirmation of his remarkable abilities in the field of music from Europe’s fountain head of classical music re-substantiating the title “the Great Artist” given to His Majesty by his subjects.
THE man Flammonde, from God knows where,
With firm address and foreign air
With news of nations in his talk
And something royal in his walk,
With glint of iron in his eyes,
But never doubt, nor yet surprise,
Appeared, adn stayed, and held his head
As one by kings accredited.
Erect, with his alert repose
About him, and about his clothes,
He pictured all tradition hears
Of what we owe to fifty years.
His cleansing heritage of taste
Paraded neither want nor waste;
And what he needed for his fee
To live, he borrowed graciously.
He never told us what he was,
Or what mischance, or other cause,
Had banished him from better days
To play the Prince of Castaways.
Meanwhile he played surpassing well
A part, for most, unplayable;
In fine, one pauses, half afraid
To say for certain that he played.
On the 26th December 2547 a Tsunami took people’s lives and property in six provinces along the coast of the Andaman Sea.
While the flood from the ocean left tear marks on the Thai people’s cheeks, the torrent of support provided by the members of the royal family’s help wash away those tears. His Majesty was a pillar of strength foe his shaken and frightened subjects.
His Majesty’s personal funds and donations in his name flowed immediately to those experiencing the devastation and horror brought by the Tsunami. Children orphaned in the catastrophe were immediately accepted into His Majesty’s patronage and protection under the Raj Pracha Nukul Foundation where they will be cared for and educated to the highest level possible.
Unfortunately, even in times of this natural disaster, conflicts occurred. His Majesty graciously gave a speech for the Thai people encouraging them to work in unity and solve problems together. Love in harmony was that new year’s message to his subjects.
In a reign of over sixty years the Thai people known in their hearts that His Majesty the King watching over them with love and care. Whenever they were in trouble his kindness flows like drops of magic water extinguishing the fire in the heart of their suffering.
