*******SupremeMasterTV**** – Shining World Compassion Award: The UK’s Secret World Wildlife Rescue - P2/2. Episode: 1647, Air Date: 19 March 2011. Everywhere in the world, we can observe and be touched by acts of kindness. People from all walks of life, faiths, and cultures extend themselves beyond the call of duty to help others unconditionally. Through their noble deeds, humanity as a whole is elevated. To commend virtuous actions and encourage more people to be inspired by their examples, Supreme Master Ching Hai has lovingly created a series of awards, including the Shining World Leadership Award, Shining World Compassion Award, Shining World Hero and Heroine Awards, Shining World Honesty Award, Shining World Protection Award, Shining World Intelligence Award, and Shining World Inventor Award, to recognize some of the most exemplary, generous, caring, and courageous people who walk amongst us. We’ve got a wound under here. You can just about see. We’re not really sure what happened, whether he (perhaps) hit an electricity cable. And we’ve stitched up what we can do, but he’s doing quite well. Secret World Wildlife Rescue in Somerset, UK specializes in the rescue, rehabilitation and eventual release of sick, injured and orphaned wild animals. On average, this marvelous group helps over 4,000 of our animal friends each year. Secret World has the distinction of being the only 24-hour a day, seven-day a week wildlife rescue center in South West England. As part of their educational outreach program, Secret World staff members visit local schools to help children learn about nature and encourage them to protect wildlife. The sanctuary was established in 1992 by Pauline and Derek Kidner, who both care deeply about animals. The wildlife at the center often need intensive care. Sick animals require regular doses of medicine, wounded ones may require surgery and dressing changes and babies need to be fed constantly. In addition, healed animals being prepared for release need food and all such facilities require regular maintenance. Fortunately, the loving staff and a team of over 600 dedicated volunteers are always willing to help. We’ve actually gone up now to nine animal carers here at Secret World and that’s because we have a shift that runs from 8 AM to 5 PM and then another one that runs from 2 PM to 10 PM and there’s an emergency service that covers all the way through the night. We have a very, very small turnover of staff, so most of those have actually been with us for at least five to seven years, if not even more. And we’re very lucky that we’ve now been joined by Sara Cowen who has been involved with wildlife for over 20 years herself. And she’s a qualified veterinary nurse and has huge experience in wildlife. And although she’s only been with us since May, it still has upped the care that we can give animals, and it’s really been lovely to see how she has progressed and taught our staff similarly how to do different things. So yes, we have a stable staffing and I think that means that you’re able to give better quality care. Moreover, the center is able to care for a wide range of species due to its expert staff and diverse facilities. We’re very lucky in Somerset. It’s actually got a huge variety of wildlife here and a very high concentration too. So we go right from the smallest pipistrelle bats, up to the Roe (deer) and the Red deer as well. And that really goes across the species of birds. We do hares. We do rabbits. Particularly (we care for) badgers and foxes. Stoats and weasels sometimes occasionally come in as well. (We get) lots of mice. And as far as we’re concerned it doesn’t matter how tiny things are. We believe that they have the right to help if they need our help and the aim is always to get them back to the wild. And of course because we’re close to the sea, as well as the garden birds and the ordinary birds in the countryside, we get a lot of sea birds as well. And our best thing in 2007 was we actually had an albatross. So the variety is absolutely incredible. Because the main goal of Secret World is to ensure that the animals are safe, cared for and allowed to rehabilitate in an environment that closely simulates their natural habitat, its grounds are rarely open to the public. But when the sanctuary does open its doors, the response is remarkable. It is a very special place. It’s a very old farm. It’s over 300 years old. It’s got a lovely atmosphere to it. We are only open 19 days a year. But we have about 20,000 people through on those days. Over the years, Secret World Wildlife Rescue has built many types of facilities to meet the diverse needs of its animal guests. We’re very lucky that as well as having facilities for veterinary care and for the casualty pens where they need heat and they need support, over the years we’ve been able to build large seclusion pens where we can put buzzards or owls. We’ve got garden aviaries where we can let those birds go once they’ve had a certain amount of time in the aviaries. And in fact with the birds, we have aviaries around in different people’s gardens so that we can involve our volunteers very much with what we do. Many animals understand and appreciate the fact that the wonderful people at Secret World are there to save their lives and nurture them. The following story illustrates this clearly. One of the things that we always do here at Secret World is we rescue, we rehabilitate and then we release and sometimes it takes a passage of time to do that. But then occasionally you get an incident where we did a year ago where a farmer came and told us that he had two Roe Bucks that were caught by their antlers in some sheep electric netting. And Simon, who is my son, was able to attend and to eventually take the netting off their antlers. And because they were still fine, it was only a matter that they were caught and he was able to just let them go. But what was so fascinating was that the very first one really fought Simon, was really obviously very, very scared of him. And eventually he let him go very carefully, because their antlers are very pointed. But the second one, seeing what happened, then stood absolutely still so that Simon could take the electric fencing off of his antlers. And when those sorts of things happen and wildlife knows that you’re helping them and they show that they know that you’re helping them, that really does give you a tingle. It’s quite impressive to see. For their tireless devotion to caring for thousands of wild animals each year, Supreme Master Ching Hai honored Secret World Wildlife Rescue with the Shining World Compassion Award. Our local Association members presented the Award to Ms. Kidner along with a beautiful, framed letter from Supreme Master Ching Hai, from which the following is an excerpt. It is with great pleasure and gratitude that we present to Secret World Wildlife Rescue the Shining World Compassion Award. Secret World Wildlife Rescue's heart-touching endeavors extend to over 4,000 animals in need each year, providing non-stop nurturing care and rescue services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The scale of this operation speaks volumes about the dedication and loving commitment of your saintly personnel, people who give their utmost to bring new hope, healing and happiness to the blessed animals that come to you. . For your outstanding selflessness and uncompromising devotion to the precious animals in your care, for the love and warmth you give them, and for being dedicated and noble role models, we hereby applaud and celebrate the compassionate deeds of Secret World Wildlife Rescue, with special thanks to Mrs. Pauline Kidner. With Great Honor, Love and Blessings, Supreme Master Ching Hai. That’s lovely. Thank you very much indeed! That's beautiful! It is everybody working together that makes it all happen. Thank you very much indeed. Secret World also received a selection of Supreme Master Ching Hai’s DVDs, CDs, and books, including her #1 international best-sellers “The Birds In My Life,” “The Dogs In My Life” and “The Noble Wilds.” In addition, Supreme Master Ching Hai made a contribution of £10,000 to Secret World Wildlife Rescue to help further their compassionate endeavors. I hope that Master Ching Hai understands just how much that means to us. The fact that we've been acknowledged for the work that we do is really lovely. And I just know that it's going to lift the spirits of the staff. And obviously the money is going to make such a lot of difference to us. It means that we can carry on helping animals and stopping suffering. Thank you very much! Approximately three weeks after the Award presentation, Secret World volunteers rescued over 30 cold and hungry swans from a frozen waterway on the Somerset Levels, an area near the center. After learning of this wonderful deed, Supreme Master Ching Hai generously contributed additional funds in the form of US$10,000 to Secret World Wildlife Rescue to further support their compassionate endeavors. Thank you very much indeed. It means an awful lot because even for the rescue, you can tell that we wouldn’t run without volunteers. Some of the volunteers actually went to cross the river on their stomachs on the ice to get a rope across. And we actually managed to rescue 21 swans on that one day and we literally had swan hot water bottles, all the way down the van and all the way back up the other side. And over subsequent days, we had a further 13 swans that came in. And we were able to keep them here (for) about 7 to 10 days, feed them up so that they've got their condition back again so they were good and strong. And this Award really did make the volunteers and the staff happy because they felt that they were really being acknowledged for all the work that they do. Please thank the Supreme Master for her kindness. We do appreciate it. Ms. Pauline Kidner and all the staff and volunteers at Secret World Wildlife Rescue, we are deeply grateful for your commitment to safeguarding the lives of wild animals. Through your efforts you provide shining examples of love and compassion and beautiful role models for the world. May you continue creating a bridge of warm friendship between animals and humans in the years to come. For more details on Secret World Wildlife Rescue, please visit Kind viewers, thank you for joining us on today’s program. Up next is Enlightening Entertainment after Noteworthy News here on Supreme Master Television. Blessed be all the noble individuals who save the lives of animals by adopting the organic, vegan diet.

*******SupremeMasterTV**** – Luka Nižetić - Acclaimed Croatian Singer and Animal Advocate (In Croatian). Episode: 1653, Air Date: 25 March 2011. Today’s Enlightening Entertainment will be presented in Croatian, with subtitles in Arabic, Aulacese (Vietnamese), Chinese, Croatian, English, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Mongolian, Persian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Thai. Hey, you're here, to love me, just one day of your life like I love you all my life. Open the crazy dance, let all your beauty release the light. How it would be, only the heart knows. Dance with me like for once before, for me you are a ray of sun. In my sails, be the wind, as with you my step is light. Luka Nižetić is an acclaimed, greatly talented singer from Croatia. With his debut album “Premijera” recorded in 2006, Luka is best known for his hit songs, “Sometimes I Wish” and “Springtime.” The singer has also been dedicating himself to campaigning against the cruelty of human use of animal fur. For his outspoken endeavors in defense of animals exploited for fur products, Supreme Master Ching Hai sent to Luka a letter of special thanks. Now, let’s get to know more about Croatia’s singing sensation Luka Nižetić. We had the honor of meeting him and his likewise accomplished sister, Croatia’s well-known television and radio personality Petra Nižetić. Luka grew up with his older sister Petra in Mertojak, a part of Split, one of the largest cities in Croatia. From a young age, Luka showed exceptional interest in music, which led to his early training for a strong musical foundation. Luka had lessons in piano with a nun, in singing and composing from a music professor. He also studied with noted Croatian opera singer Sanja Erceg-Vrekalo. Growing up, Luka and Petra’s artistic side were encouraged. At home I paint, I pursue drawing, painting and photography. These are my hobbies, some of my loves which amuse me in my free time. I and my sister have inherited an artistic ability from our mother. I especially got my mother's genes and have fully gone on this artistic side, but Petra is half and half. Petra Nižetić went on to distinguish herself in journalism and became a host for HRT (Croatian Radiotelevision), a leading national radio and television broadcast company. She has hosted many programs, including the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest. As for Luka, at the age of 17, the gifted artist composed his first song called “Oh Crazy Town,” which was selected by Croatian composer Zdenko Runjić to be in his 2001 MHJ music festival. There, Luka’s song won three silver honors and the second prize by a panel of experts. In 2004, he signed a contract with Menart Records and produced his first album, “Premijera,” debuting a number of popular singles. A performance of the song “Springtime” at the Dora song competition in 2005 sent Luka Nižetić soaring to fame. He was soon nominated for the Porin prize, the Croatian equivalent of the Grammy Award. Since I met you I'm not the same anymore, everyone knows it already. And I wonder what it was with me. What is the spell with which you enchanted me. Spring is, and restlessness is in me. From happiness, I would embrace the universe. I can describe myself as being more introverted normally more so than in my personal life, than when I'm on stage. Stage and music are a medium where I completely open myself as a person and there I can be what I want. There are no disguises and there I feel the best. Luka has been busy creating new music albums. In the song “Springtime,” he appeared with Nostalgia, the well-known klapa, a traditional Croatian capella group. For this album too, I have some agreements with a new talented klapa. I have collaborated with a Macedonian group, the female choir Ezerki. Now on my next album, I will appear and collaborate with the Kočani orchestra. This is a quality, popular trumpet band from Kočani in Macedonia. We will make some really unusual collaboration. I'm always interested in something new, to discover some new collaborations. It is spring and the grass is fragrant. My heart says you're the right one for me, for me. It is spring, and restlessness is in me. From happiness, I would embrace the universe. It is spring and the grass is fragrant. My heart says you're the right one. for me, for me. Spring is, and restlessness is in me. From happiness, I would embrace the universe. Spring is and grass is fragrant. My heart says you're the right one. Spring is, and restlessness is in me From happiness, I would embrace the universe. Spring is and grass is fragrant. My heart says you're the right one. for me, for me. What does spirituality mean to you and how do you express it in songs? For me, spirituality is everywhere around us. We only need to recognize it, and right way put it on a tray, and then serve it to people, to the close ones. In songs, too, of course. I think that my goal in life is, since I was a little boy, to pursue music and through music entertain people. Not only entertain people, but sometimes to speak to people, too, to give some advice through campaigns I make with Animal Friends, telling people something through what I’m doing, through what I like. Besides having a golden voice, Luka Nižetić also has a big heart with a soft spot for animals. He teamed up with Animal Friends Croatia, an organization for the promotion of animal rights and vegetarianism, in a campaign to ban all sales of clothes, shoes or other products made of animal fur. Luka appeared in billboards and posters throughout the many cities of Croatia with the slogan, “Say No to Fur Now and Forever.” I'm a great admirer of animals since I’ve known myself, and was a little boy, then automatically this powerful feeling and reaction arise when I see that someone harasses animals for any sake. I think that there is a great selection of materials today, and such a wide choice of materials which can be used that look good, and are as warm as animal fur, even better. So my opinion is, Why abuse animals for something like that, when there are different alternatives? Why not use those alternatives which look equally good, which are equally warm? It is important to love animals, then you love the people, too. Right, sister? That’s right, brother. Luka’s sister Petra Nižetić is like-minded with her brother on the importance of protecting animals. I'm interested in what is your attitude regarding animal protection and what should be done? In any case I think that everyone must start from oneself. Now, how much one can do depends on him/her to decide how much to contribute, but definitely everyone must start from oneself and it is the last time to start undertake something. From where did you get the idea for the program you’re doing on HRT named Only Good Stories? I'm interested where you found inspiration and how it will be developed in the future? In the early days, When my mother and Father were young, there was negtive news, too but I think that Many more positive things became visible. In any case, that somehow prompted us in some ways; on Croatian television When many people watch television shows, it indicates that in our society there are still positive stories, and affirmative news, there are people who take care of others. Nearly half of the programs were about shelters for animals. There we have had two dogs who needed to be taken care of. After the program we found someone to take care of them, people who called in. We’re pointing out, I would say, all the problems, and vegetarianism, we absolutely will do a program because I support it. What do you think about veganism? Definitely I support vegetarianism and veganism. Do you intend in your career to thematically dedicate your songs to awaken love toward animals and being generally friendly companions with them? Yes, I think perhaps not only to animals, but perhaps point to some other things too, which torment our planet Earth. We all have to be aware of the situation which we are in, and all together contribute to that. The late Michael Jackson did a lot on it and I try to follow him in this regard, For his caring endeavors to protect our furry animals, Supreme Master Ching Hai sent a letter of special thanks to Croatian singer Luka Nižetić. The following is an excerpt: “Dear Mr. Nižetić, I wish to express our sincere thanks to you for your spirited stance against animal cruelty. Courageously voicing your attitude, you are leading the way forward towards a harmonious future between humankind and our co-inhabitants of the Earth. Your tremendous support for the Animal Friends Croatia campaign, “Croatia Without Fur,” sends a noble message of compassionate awareness to the fashion industry, that now is the time to move away from animal-based fur, avoiding needless killing of innocent animals… Your gracious efforts are helping to elevate our globe to a higher consciousness, and pave the way to a new golden era where all of God's creation can live together in harmony… Wishing you ongoing success, prosperity and all the best in Heaven's grace. With Great Honour, Love and Blessings, Supreme Master Ching Hai” Beautiful! It's beautiful. Thank you very much. Mr. Nižetić was also presented with Supreme Master Ching Hai’s #1 international bestselling books, “The Dogs in My Life,” “The Birds in My Life,” and “The Noble Wilds,” along with other books and lecture DVDs. It is a great honor. Thank you very much. I just can’t wait to go home and slowly browse and read the books and DVDs. Thanks very much to Master. Thank you very much. Many thanks and admiration, Luka, for your noble endeavors to help our animal friends. Wishing you and Petra all the best in both your shining professions as living role models as well as in your campaigns to help create a more caring world. We would win the world, just never say to me it’s all the same to you Dance with me like once before, for me for me you are a ray of sun. In my sails be the wind, as with you my step is light. Let’s dance with me like once before, for me for me you are a ray of sun. In my sails be the wind, as with you my step is easy. Let’s dance with me like once before, for me for me you are a ray of sun. In my sails be the wind, as with you my step is light. Delightful viewers, thank you for your company on today’s program.

*******SupremeMasterTV**** – Shining World Hero Award: Clayton Williams, a Brave-hearted Superboy's Kitten Rescue. Episode: 1653, Air Date: 25 March 2011. Everywhere in the world, we can observe and be touched by acts of kindness. People from all walks of life, faiths, and cultures extend themselves beyond the call of duty to help others unconditionally. Through their noble deeds, humanity as a whole is elevated. To commend virtuous actions and encourage more people to be inspired by their examples, Supreme Master Ching Hai has lovingly created a series of awards, including the Shining World Leadership Award, Shining World Compassion Award, Shining World Hero and Heroine Awards, Shining World Honesty Award, Shining World Protection Award, Shining World Intelligence Award, and Shining World Inventor Award, to recognize some of the most exemplary, generous, caring, and courageous people who walk amongst us. Tender-hearted, nine-year-old Clayton Williams of Texas, USA risked his own life to save the life of a neighbor’s kitten. The story begins when Clayton heard the cries of the young cat stuck high in a backyard tree. And although the kitten was precariously perched on a limb some 35 feet or 10 meters above the ground, Clayton did not hesitate to try rescuing her. When I saw the cat, I climbed up a different tree to see if I could reach her from that tree. But I couldn’t. So I climbed back down and climbed up the tree she was in. I got to the limb, (but she) kept going to the back of the limb. I did not want to go anywhere else. I wanted to stay right there. While reaching for the kitten, Clayton suddenly began to lose his grip on the limb. My left arm had slipped. I was only holding on with my right arm. I kept trying to reach her. But (I had) to reach up and grab, because this hand was slipping. But before I could, that’s when I fell. The cat had gone to the very end of the limb and he was reaching for her as she backed off the limb and fell. And then he turned to see where she was at, and his hand slipped off. And he was trying to grab back on. And the other hand ended up slipping too and he ended up falling backwards from the tree. He fell feet first on his left side. When he hit the ground, he fell backwards. So, that’s how he broke his ribs and his shoulder blades falling backwards. And he apparently didn’t hit any of the limbs on the way down, which was a miracle in itself because it could have caused head and neck injuries. Although severely injured, Clayton was conscious and heroically struggled to get the kitten to his house. He picked the cat up in his mouth because he could only move his right arm, because his arm was broken so badly. (I couldn’t use it.) He army-crawled on his right side with the cat in his mouth. And I was like shocked that that he had put the cat in his mouth to come home. Clayton’s mother, who was tidying up the house, had been unaware of the desperate situation outside. I really didn’t know he was even outside when he fell, because I was dealing with the household, trying to get it cleaned up. I had actually thought it was the dog at the front door whining. When I opened the door, Clayton was at the bottom of the steps. Despite just having undergone a highly traumatic event, Clayton’s first concern was still the kitten’s well-being. I went to stand him up and the whole time he was yelling, “I want to take the cat to the vet. I want to take the cat to the vet.” So I picked up the kitten and put her in a safe part of the yard and told him, “Right now the kitten is okay. We’re going to take you to the hospital.” After being reassured that the precious kitten was safe, Clayton was finally willing to have his own injuries treated. I could see that something was wrong. And it didn’t register in my mind how bad everything was. It just was my baby did not look like my baby. So, I drove to the hospital and I carried him because by that time he was going in and out of consciousness. The brave little nine-year old then underwent major surgery for eight-and-a-half hours. He came out of the surgery, everything was fine. We got to his room and he refused pain medications, he wouldn’t take them. After a long hospital stay, Clayton finally returned home. And despite his own condition, Clayton’s first concern was finding out how the kitten was doing. What made Clayton so determined to save a cat who lived in a neighbor’s house? Because she was a baby. And I got to pet her on the back steps. She was a little nice cat. Clayton’s father is a Native American or member of a people indigenous to the United States, and his respect and love for animals has deeply influenced his family. We think that the animals are souls, they have spirits. And everybody on Earth and everything on Earth is tied together. And so we treat the animals the way we want to be treated. Each one of us has a purpose and a point to be here on Earth. And the animals are our friends. They are here to make us feel better. Because, Lord knows, we may come back then maybe as a cat or a dog. I see a house full of animals; you have dogs and cats (Yes, sir.) and birds. (Yes, sir.) Alright. Can you talk a little bit about your relationship with the animals around? What do you think about having all these animals? Do you like it? It’s very fun to play with them and stuff. Supreme Master Ching Hai was touched to tears upon hearing of Clayton’s selfless deed, and honored him with the Shining World Hero Award, along with toys for the kitten and US$4,000 to help Clayton in whatever way he needs. She also conveyed her many hugs and kisses for Clayton, saying that she loves him so much and is so proud of him too. Our local Association members presented the Award and gifts to Clayton on behalf of Supreme Master Ching Hai. Supreme Master Ching Hai also sent Clayton the following lovely letter. Dear Clayton, It is with much pleasure and gratitude that we present to you the “Shining World Hero Award.” This Award is presented in recognition of your extraordinary courage and fearless outlook on life, enabling you to achieve what others can only dream. Your daring feat of rescue and remarkable selflessness has inspired humanity to greater heights. Who would have thought a nine year-old boy and feline could cause so much sensation! Yet that’s exactly what you have done, Clayton. When you heard piteous meows coming from a kitten in a tree, crying for a knight to save her, you did not hesitate to climb up to comfort the distressed feline. Once on the limb however, you and the kitten fell to the ground. Although you had broken more than a dozen bones, you were still focused solely on saving the little cat, who you noticed was not moving. With great nurturing concern, holding the kitten in your mouth, you army-crawled some 35 feet to the house and told your mom you wanted to take the kitten to the vet. Realizing the severity of your injuries, mom immediately took you to the hospital. There it was discovered that not only had you broken your arm, but also 16 other bones on the left side of your body. Even after surgery, you refused pain medication, and thankfully are now at home, recovering with kitty. Clayton, we are touched by your selfless actions and devotion to the tiny feline, and amazed how your love for another being could take you beyond the limitations of the human body. May you soon be restored to vibrant good health through your love for all of God’s creations. For your outstanding bravery and act of sacrifice, for your exemplary display of love in action, and for being a dedicated and compassionate role model, we hereby applaud and celebrate the heroic deeds of brave-hearted Superboy. You’ve got a new name. Superboy! This is Clayton Williams, right over here. Let’s give him a hand! He was telling his teacher, and his teacher came up to me and she goes, “I heard Clayton’s getting a superhero award.” I was like, “No! No, no, no, no. It’s an award for what he did this summer.” She’s like, “That’s a superhero to me.” So Clayton, we’d like to give you this check for US$4,000. Thank you. Among the other gifts the “Superboy” received was a beautiful, crystal Shining World Hero plaque, Supreme Master Ching Hai’s #1 international bestsellers, “The Birds In My Life,” “The Dogs In My Life” and the “Noble Wilds,” a special t-shirt with the word “HERO” emblazoned on the front, and some of Supreme Master Ching Hai’s DVDs and CDs. And we also have some books here. (Look at that one.) This one is “The Noble Wilds.” Oh, how pretty, look. All the ducks. I’ll hold this. And here’s the Award. Thank you. (There you go). How does Clayton’s mother feel about her son’s extraordinary courage in rescuing the little kitten? I am very, very proud of him. Not many people would save a stray cat and especially go to those lengths. And my son is the most special little boy I’ve ever met. And I am very, very lucky to be his mom. Is there anything you want to say to Master Ching Hai? I am grateful. I am so thankful for all the wonderful gifts she has shown my son. And all the wonderful things that she has given my child and my family. And for somebody else to tell me they are proud of my son for what my son did, it makes me very, very grateful. I am very grateful that she actually showed the thoughtfulness that she showed. I am glad somebody else realizes what a special child I have. Thank you. Clayton Williams, we sincerely thank you for providing the world with a wonderful example of altruism in risking your own life to safeguard a helpless kitten. May you swiftly regain full, vibrant health and continue to be a noble protector of animals. Marvelous viewers, thank you for your company on today’s program. Enlightening Entertainment is up next after Noteworthy News. May courage and wisdom always guide our lives.

*******SupremeMasterTV**** – We Love You, Dad: A Father's Day Tribute. Episode: 1739, Air Date: 19 June 2011. Script Greetings loving viewers! Today, June 19, is Father’s Day as celebrated in many countries. It is a special occasion to express how much we appreciate our caring, loving dads. In honor of Father’s Day, both fathers and children around the world speak about their special relationship. Being a dad, well, children are always the best, you love them most, and you actually live for them, so… Like today, for example, the weather is nice, so we can go for a walk, feed the ducks. Adusia likes feeding the ducks a lot, yes? Is that right? My daughter has taught me a lot about love. And now I see the world in a new light. When I return home from work, no matter how tired I am, the moment I see my daughter’s face, I feel so relaxed and happy. And indeed, this is a feeling that I had never experienced before. When I met my wife, I thought I’m going to become a dad one day, and I thought I want to be a role model, I want to be my children’s hero. So, I gave up drinking, I gave up smoking, I threw everything away because my children had to grow up the proper way. My dad’s a hero to me because he sacrifices so much to show so much and to give so much love to his family. No matter in what part of the globe, pride fills a father’s heart. Pakistani Consul General Zaheer Pervaiz Khan explains: I think that you always feel proud of your children. When you see the children right from the moment they are born, and then watching them grow. Every day is important and every time, whatever gesture he does is important. Even the parents are there to forgive and just teach them how to be a good citizen of the world. I am a proud dad of three. I’ve got two sons and my lovely daughter with me. The most strong love is being a parent. As a dad, I am very proud of my kids, my family, and I love to have them and take care of them in my life. In the eyes of his children, dad is a hero. A father himself, Mr. Hsieh Tung Liang, a well-known Tai Chi teacher and sculptor from Formosa (Taiwan), admires his dad. I am now 90 years old and my wife is 87. I am very interested in exercising. I have been practicing Tai Chi for 25 years. I know that my children are very well behaved. My father embraces the philosophy of lifelong learning. He is still learning English now. I can see that my father seldom worries. He said, “I am busy every day, so I never grow old.” This is his philosophy and it is worth emulating. When we were small, Dad would join us in playing blindfolding games, or, he would wear wigs, like when he sees us girls wearing funny hats, he would also wear them for fun! [My father] is successful in whatever he does. For example, he has made his name in two fields, one is the art of sculpture, and the other is Tai Chi Chuan. My father always tries his best in whatever he does. I wish that all the fathers in the world, including my father, will always be healthy, happy, and be together with their children. I wish for everyone to be filial to their father and mother. Dad, Happy Father’s Day! A father teaches discipline and cultural values. We often share our most memorable experience with our father. He is an educator, a strict educator. It means firm discipline. We were also taught how to practice yoga, etc. So this is how we are taught on how to live and share with the next generation, for the other children. When I first wanted to start the Ethiopian Children’s Fund (ECF), he encouraged me very much. We lived abroad, my dad was a diplomat, but growing up I always had love for my country and I give so much credit to my father. Ethiopia has a beautiful great history, beautiful culture. So I grew up always dreaming of coming here and doing something and living here. He was a great father. He loved this country, he served this country. I feel that love and that vision has been transferred to us, his children. When I started music in Pakistan, most of the parents think that it is not a promising profession, but my father really supported me. He said do whatever you want to do in life. He bought me the first guitar. So I’d like to thank my father for supporting me. Mongolian Foreign Policy Advisor Och Od also says he owes much to his father. Especially on teachings of Buddhism, [my father] studied very well. He is also highly educated in modern science. It’s amazing that he combined these. In my opinion, this example and this combination that helps me is very important in governing the country. In other words, I always ask myself what my father would have done, if he were in my shoes, what he would have said, etc. Next, meet emerging vegan artist Young Sky from South Korea. If you look at this picture, the farthest to the right is my father, who was a tenor. Since he did classical music, his style has had an influence on me, especially when I compose music. This is my father and me 17 years ago. Cute, yes? He spent a lot of time with us though he was really busy. Although he is not physically with me, he’s always here in my heart. And I’m really thankful to him that he passed a fraction of his musical gift on to me. When I quit learning vocal music and told him I’d do hip-hop rather than classical music, nevertheless, he trusted me and respected my decision, and I’m so grateful for that and I admire my father. I love my father. Ms. Evelyne Dassas is a French comedienne who remembers her high-thinking father. [My father] was a man with great values which he defended. They are values of solidarity, brotherhood, openness of the heart, intelligence . I would like to wish all the fathers who are listening, in the name of my father firstly and our Father who art in Heaven, indeed, a Happy Father’s Day. Really, to all the fathers on Earth so that, on this day of light, they receive all the love from their children and from all the people they love. Next, three generations of Taichung City Councilor Lai’s family in Formosa (Taiwan) express their feelings. I keep telling [my children] that as humans, we must take the right steps and not walk on the wrong path. We should do good deeds, and if their situation allows in the future, they should endeavor to help the needy and the poor. Frankly speaking, our family did not have much savings. However, periodically, my father would take us to visit the home for the physically challenged, to help the children there by donating money and food. He feels that helping people is the greatest happiness and blessing. I also let my children observe what I am doing, just like my father used to take us to do charity work before. My father is a city councilor, so he is very busy every day serving the citizens. Nevertheless, he always tries his best having his three meals at home with us. Father told us that the vegetarian diet can help save the Earth. During this election, I accompanied my father to visit households one by one. I realized then how hard my father has been working outside. Mr. Dinesh Kashikar is a student of Sri Ravi Shankar, the Indian spiritual teacher, vegetarian, and father figure he’d like to honor on Father’s Day. As children, we look up to our father to take care of us, to provide us with education, to provide us with a good life. And I feel this is what Sri Sri Ravi Shankar does to the whole congregation. He does not ask anything from us but he is ready to give to us. Indeed, fatherly love runs deep. What a child should read in his parents’ eyes is pride. Not pride related to circumstances, to what he will do, to what he will be, just the pride that he is our child. “Whoever you are, whatever you do, if I love you, I will not judge you, I will just be there to be with you, close to you, to support you, to be a force, to be a solution, to be the love that I have for you.” That is it. I always wanted them to be my dear friends, for them to see me more as a friend than a father figure. What kind of a world do fathers wish for their children? I had my first great grandchild. I would wish for a world where we could get along and respect each other wherever we are, and in whatever case and condition. In other words, compassion. Well, I would like a utopia perhaps. What worries me so much is the generation that is after me. Not just my kids, your kids that are listening to me. Do you want your children to have bad times, like the ones we already are having? No! Right? What we want in the world is peace and love, that we can live well with our neighbors, love them as ourselves. And love your family. They depend on us. On this special day, I also would like to say Happy Father’s Day to my son, because he also is a father. And I’m also very thankful to Supreme Master Ching Hai. I wish the good energy and light of [Supreme Master Ching Hai] will reach all goodhearted parents as well as their children like sun light that can reach everywhere and give everyone happiness and uplift them all. So, to fathers, sons, mothers, daughters, I wish you all happiness and the best. All right, thank you. Thank you, Father! Fathers are leaders who keep their children in mind while at work, even at a United Nations meeting. What kind of a planet would you like to leave to your children and grandchildren? Would someone like to take that? I mean, I'd be happy to respond. Obviously, as parents, you know, we're very protective of our children and we hope to leave them something better than what all of us had or found. I would like them to live in a clean house [planet] where they’re not denied anything, so that they can also enjoy what God created for us. Bravo for Father’s Day! I think that all fathers must unite during this celebration and uphold the value of a man. Being a father is a very spiritual activity. Greetings, friends and viewers. I’m your friend Luo Zha, a singer from Tibet. On this occasion, I’d like to wish fathers around the world a Happy Father’s Day. Good luck. Please Be Veg, Go Green 2 Save the Planet, so that all beings can have peace and everyone can enjoy good health and a good life. We congratulate all fathers on this planet for this wonderful holiday - Father's Day! Happy Father's Day! Happy Father’s Day! On Father’s Day during a 1994 gathering with our Association members in the United States, Supreme Master Ching Hai was asked to share her thoughts about this special holiday. To me, every day is Father's Day and Mother's Day. Every day we should remember our parents. Because every day we live in this world, we owe them, right? We owe them love, respect, and eternal gratitude. We can celebrate anytime we feel we love the father so much, that the father sacrifices so much for us. We must know he sacrifices. Where does the house come from? Where does the food come from? Where do your clothes come from? All from the parents. So every time you wear something, you eat something, that is the time you should remember the parents even. Anytime, buy something for the father, even just a pair of socks with a lot of flowers on it. Make something so that he knows you love him and appreciate him. That is a best Father's Day. We wish all the courageous and dedicated dads boundless blessings, health and happiness on this Father’s Day and every day. Our respectful gratitude, Supreme Master Ching Hai, who has helped many be better children and parents, while being a beloved parent herself filling hearts with hope, wisdom, and compassion. We pray that the profound caring sacrifice of all the fathers will help to preserve our world for present and future generations. May they all receive the love they deserve from Heaven and their families. We love you, Dad! Thank you for your pleasant company today. Please stay tuned to Supreme Master Television for Our Noble Lineage, coming up next after Noteworthy News. Blessed be all fathers.

BY GARY COTTON Tim Cook is Apple’s new head man. He has over 13 years of experience with the company, and has successfully led it before, but the media isn’t talking about that. The biggest question being asked on the blogosphere is… is he gay? A writer for SFist sure thinks he is, Brock Keeling writes... “After Steve Jobs resigned as Apple CEO on Wednesday, COO Tim Cook took over, effectively becoming the most powerful gay man in the country. Cook’s ascension, if you will, should have a profound impact on the LGBT community, especially within the elite tech world.” Ok, so that’s one opinion, but the bigger question is- is this news? As far as the major media outlets are concerned, it’s not. They’re talking about Cook plenty, but his sexuality isn’t on the topic list. “As chief operating officer, Tim Cook handled the companies envious balance sheets” (CNN) “He’s been the running the company for years” (Fox News) “The question for Tim Cook is, How visible should he be? One of the benefits of working with Steve Jobs, because they’ve been doing so well on their execution, is he’s been able to hide a little bit quite frankly over the years.” (Bloomberg) “Tim Cook, the guy who relentlessly drove production efficiencies up and costs down.” (The Wall Street Journal) The biggest fuss was raised by a writer for Reuters who says, why not talk about Cook’s sexuality. We’re the media, it’s kind of our job. He writes, with Cook’s big promotion comes a little intrusion. His personal life will get a lot more interest, and the media should cover it. But... Cook has never actually said he’s gay. A writer for Mogulite says the fact that Cook hasn’t confirmed the rumor doesn’t really matter. “That didn’t stop Out magazine from naming him America’s #1 Power Gayand various LGBT-minded news sources from touting him as a leading role model for the gay community." But a writer for The Atlantic Wire says slow down. Since Cook’s never said he’s gay, maybe we shouldn’t either. “Apple’s new CEO Tim Cook is not officially out of the closet, but he’s in the “glass closet,” apparently: people know he’s gay without him having to come out and say it. This isn’t news. But in light of his big promotion, does his sexuality matter?”

*******SupremeMasterTV**** – Shining World Compassion and Hero Award: True Human Spirit in the Animals’ Hour of Need. Episode: 1743, Air Date: 23 June 2011. Everywhere in the world, we can observe and be touched by acts of kindness. People from all walks of life, faiths, and cultures extend themselves beyond the call of duty to help others unconditionally. Through their noble deeds, humanity as a whole is elevated. To commend virtuous actions and encourage more people to be inspired by their examples, Supreme Master Ching Hai has lovingly created a series of awards, including the Shining World Leadership Award, Shining World Compassion Award, Shining World Hero and Heroine Awards, Shining World Honesty Award, Shining World Protection Award, Shining World Intelligence Award, and Shining World Inventor Award, to recognize some of the most exemplary, generous, caring, and courageous people who walk amongst us. Today we celebrate the noble deeds and true, loving spirit of officials from Greene County, Indiana, USA and Chen Shueh-Jen founder of the Gangshan Aranya Dog Sanctuary in Formosa (Taiwan). In the United States, more than 70 dogs were rescued from a mobile home in Indiana by the county health department and the Indiana State Police. Let’s hear from Marilyn Crays, a public health nurse for the health department, and Shane Smith, a former deputy for the sheriff’s department on how they first heard about the dogs’ perilous situation. The way that we usually hear of these incidents is a complaint. Usually neighbors in the area. We had several that had notified us about the dogs in this area. Prior to the health department getting contacted, I believe the same people that were complaining also contacted the sheriff’s department with the large number of dogs that these two people had. The dogs started getting out of the kennels and running throughout the area where they were kept at. Then again, I was contacted by the health department to do an escort with them out there in case there were any problems. What officials found when they arrived was heart wrenching and deeply saddening. I really did not believe that somebody actually had 100 dogs in a trailer. And when we arrived, and I saw many dogs on the outside, and they were in cages, (there were) very few, very few dog food bowls anywhere to feed these animals. A lot of them looked like they had scars on their bodies, and they just looked very weak. Some of them did also look sick. The main part that I noticed was when we came up on the front porch area, there was a horrible odor. The smell just permeated. It almost made you ill it was so bad. And then when the front door opened, it was just unbelievable. They had chicken wire fence and all these dogs that were in the living room and had some in the kitchen. They lived in the bedroom, in the back part of the house, and they had even new puppies back there. The dogs were allowed to do whatever they needed to do in the home. There was feces everywhere and a urine smell. The cleanliness level was not very good at that time either. The inside of the trailer was, we felt, at that time unlivable, and we were going to have to make a decision for their health and safety. We gave them 30-days to get the trailer cleaned up and everything they needed. The Monroe County Humane Association, a local non-profit animal welfare group, aided the vulnerable dogs as well. We were able to just work with these people and talk with them and they understood that maybe that situation wasn’t the best for all of those dogs. So they actually signed them over to us. Then we came back about a week later. We rescued all the dogs, brought them back to the temporary shelter where people cared for them. For about three days they received vet care. They were all treated and then we transported them to various shelters, in Indiana as well as Michigan (USA) and Wisconsin (USA). For their caring efforts to restore the health and wellbeing of humans and animals alike, Supreme Master Ching Hai honored the Greene County Health Department and the Indiana State Police each with the Shining World Compassion Award, accompanied by a letter of appreciation. The following is a brief excerpt from Supreme Master Ching Hai’s letter to the Greene County Health Department: We applaud and honor your loving efforts and faultless expertise in helping to achieve the very best arrangements for these beautiful dogs. You make our world a better place through your caring dedication to the wellbeing of both people and animals. Thank you so much for the shining example of love in action! With Great Honor, Love and Blessings, Supreme Master Ching Hai It is an honor to receive this Award for something that we don't think about every day, that we're going to go out and rescue dogs. But it's an honor to be honored for doing our work on a daily basis. I really appreciate it. Thank you! Supreme Master Ching Hai also contributed US$10,000 to the Monroe County Humane Association to assist in the purchase of veggie dog food and medical care for the rescued dogs. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We are truly touched and humbled. This is what we do and we don’t expect anything in return and so this was really humbling and we’re touched that she felt that we were deserving. As we know, advocating for the animals is a lot of work. And a lot of times we don’t have all of the resources we would like to. So this really makes a difference. Next, we travel to Formosa (Taiwan) for a Shining World Hero Award presentation to Mr. Chen Shueh-Jen of the non-profit Gangshan Aranya Dog Sanctuary, for his quick thinking and actions that saved the lives of many canines when Typhoon Fanapi hit the island. Let’s now hear from Mr. Chen about what happened when the typhoon struck the area and his efforts that night. On the night of Typhoon Fanapi, there was very severe flooding, about 400 centimeters high. I moved all the rescued dogs to the top of the big dog cage over there. Its location happened to be the right height. The flood water rose up very quickly. It was really scary. I kept swimming all night, probably the whole night till dawn. Those dogs that I was able to rescue were all saved. For his heroic, compassionate act of safeguarding the dogs’ lives in their time of need, Supreme Master Ching Hai honored Mr. Chen Shueh-Jen with the Shining World Hero Award. The following is a reading of Supreme Master Ching Hai’s letter of gratitude to the gallant Mr. Chen: Dear Mr. Chen, It is with great pleasure and gratitude that we present to you the “Shining World Hero Award.” This Award is presented in recognition of your courageous rescue of hundreds of our beloved friends in the animal kingdom – the intelligent, kind hearted and loyal canines. Earlier this year a severe storm caused major flooding across Formosa. Gangshan Township was among the worst hit, and unfortunately your sanctuary was flooded to a height of four meters. You were alone at the time when the flood hit, choosing bravely to stay with hundreds of frightened, wet, cold and despondent dogs as their protector with rapidly rising waters. It was a critical and difficult situation. Immediately thinking of the 400 residents’ needs and using great initiative, you stacked up their cages to create a higher ground and encouraged them to seek refuge above the waters! It was dark, making the work dangerous and hard, and along the way you received many cuts and bruises. Showing great love and concern for their wellbeing you swam around looking for food to uplift their spirits. After dramatically and successfully rescuing almost all of them, it was then two long days in freezing cold conditions before being rescued. Mr. Chen, in your wisdom you know the sanctuary’s residents are members of our extended family of living beings, and as such, you were willing to sacrifice your own life to save theirs. Such selfless bravery and dedication for our co-inhabitants is rare, you are indeed a man amongst men, and a shining light of nobility. Sir, we hope that your lucky dogs have recovered fully and your much needed sanctuary is rebuilt better than ever before. We herewith offered our little humble part. For your outstanding courage and selfless act of sacrifice, for your heart-felt loving care, and for being a dedicated and noble role model, we hereby applaud and celebrate the heroic deeds of Mr. Chen, Shueh-Jen, Founder of Gangshan Aranya Dog Sanctuary. With Great Honor, Love and Blessings, Supreme Master Ching Hai Thank you. It’s my great honor to accept the Shining World Hero Award, which is presented by Supreme Master Ching Hai. I really send my deep appreciation to Supreme Master Ching Hai for giving a hand to the 400 dogs at this time. On behalf of these dogs, I’d like to give my sincere thanks to Supreme Master Ching Hai. Supreme Master Ching Hai also provided 40 packs of vegan dog food and US$10,000 to the Gangshan Aranya Dog Sanctuary. Mr. Chen was in the midst of rebuilding the Sanctuary in partnership with an organization called Animal Rescue Team Taiwan when he received this unexpected gift. Some part of the construction had not been completed yet. Coincidently, Supreme Master Ching Hai helped us and the US$10,000 happened to be needed to complete the construction. Supreme Master Ching Hai granted the US$10,000 just in time to help us make arrangements for constructing this side. So, this money granted by Supreme Master Ching Hai was really important. It did play a significant role in completing the follow-up construction. In addition, Mr. Chen received a selection of Supreme Master Ching Hai’s books, including the #1 international bestsellers “The Dogs in My Life,” “The Birds in My Life” and “The Noble Wilds,” a number of her DVDs and CDs and a reusable “Be Veg, Go Green 2 Save the Planet” bag. Yes, “Be Veg, Go Green 2 Save the Planet.” I hope we together spread the power of love to the whole world with this common idea, and also give impetus to saving the planet through the power of love. Our earnest thanks Greene County Health Department, Indiana State Police, Monroe County Humane Association and the Gangshan Aranya Dog Sanctuary for the life-saving service you provide for both the humans and animals in your respective communities. May your wonderful work continue to shine a beacon of light on many more souls. Cherished viewers, thank you for joining us today on our program. Coming up next is Enlightening Entertainment, after Noteworthy News. May all beings be forever graced with Heavenly light.

*******SupremeMasterTV**** – Shining World Hero Award: Randall Arauz and the Costa Rican Shark Fin Ban (In Spanish). Episode: 1750, Air Date: 30 June 2011. Today’s Animal World: Our Co-Inhabitants will be presented in Spanish and English, with subtitles in Arabic, Aulacese (Vietnamese), Chinese, English, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Mongolian, Persian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Thai. Everywhere in the world, we can observe and be touched by acts of kindness. People from all walks of life, faiths, and cultures extend themselves beyond the call of duty to help others unconditionally. Through their noble deeds, humanity as a whole is elevated. To commend virtuous actions and encourage more people to be inspired by their examples, Supreme Master Ching Hai has lovingly created a series of awards, including the Shining World Leadership Award, Shining World Compassion Award, Shining World Hero and Heroine Awards, Shining World Honesty Award, Shining World Protection Award, Shining World Intelligence Award, and Shining World Inventor Award, to recognize some of the most exemplary, generous, caring, and courageous people who walk amongst us. Biologist Randall Arauz founded the marine conservation organization, PRETOMA, to save sea turtles. After a colleague on a long-line fishing boat shot some disturbing footage, everything changed. The first time I saw the shark-finning video, I was just stunned. They hack off the fins, they throw the shark overboard. And I was speechless. It was the catalyst that made us get into shark conservation. The Association for the Restoration of Sea Turtles (PRETOMA) is a non-profit organization in Costa Rica devoted to protecting, preserving and restoring populations of sea turtles and sharks in the seas off the coast of Costa Rica. In 1999, we were able to ban the killing of sea turtles in Costa Rica. Before that it was legal for 1,800 sea turtles to be slaughtered on the Atlantic Coast of Costa Rica. We brought this case to court, and we won, and since 1999, it has been an illegal activity We also managed to stop the operation of tuna farms in Costa Rica, which is another kind of unsustainable marine exploitation. Last week, we managed to close the country's ports for foreign fleets that come here for shark finning. Mr. Randall Arauz is a Costa Rican biologist, naturalist and conservationist who has received a number of awards during his career, including the 2010 Goldman Environmental Prize, known as the “Green Nobel Prize” and the 2010 Göteburg Award for Sustainable Development, the environmental honor most recognized in Europe, which Mr. Arauz received for his efforts to preserve ecosystems and marine species. We've been working very hard on the creation of Marine Protected Areas, because in this case… the problem of fishing, the solution is really simple, we have to fish less or stop fishing. There are biologically very important areas for the species, where marine turtles breed, where sharks breed, different animals breed in the biological corridors (wildlife corridors). Mr. Arauz began working mainly on turtle conservation and was shaken upon discovering the horrendous practice of shark finning during one of his marine studies. We simply bumped into the problem of shark finning. We saw where they bring the sharks; they tore off their fins, threw the sharks back into the water and it was then that we realized it really is a problem of the ecosystem, not a problem unique to the turtle. What we have here is a problem of overfishing, greed, and this is bringing an end to the turtles and the sharks. So we decided that, really as a first step, we had to end unsustainable fishing practices, and shark fishing for its fins is one of the worst practices that may exist. So we started on the task to at least expose what is happening in Costa Rica, and to try to influence global conservation policies and shark fishing. In 2003, Mr. Arauz and a team of concerned PRETOMA members secretly filmed a ghastly incident in which a ship illegally landed 30 tons of shark fins in the middle of the night, and then bravely submitted the footage to the local media in an effort to help stop the horrific practice of shark finning that kills up to 100 million sharks globally each year. When we came up with this video, we were able to tell the Costa Ricans, “Look, this is what’s going on. It’s happening right under our nose with the consent of our fishery authorities.” Costa Ricans were shocked when they saw those videos. PRETOMAS’ awareness campaign led to many protests and congressional legislation, mandating that sharks must be landed with their fins naturally attached to their bodies. This progressive legislation has been recognized worldwide. In recognition of the extraordinary courage shown by Randall Arauz and PRETOMA, for their kindness, perseverance and excellence in protecting our oceans and their inhabitants, and for promoting the sustainability of our planet´s fragile ecosystems, Mr. Arauz was honored with the Shining World Hero Award by Supreme Master Ching Hai. During a ceremony held in San José, Costa Rica the beautiful Award plaque was presented to him on Supreme Master Ching Hai’s behalf by our local Association members. Supreme Master Ching Hai sent a loving and encouraging letter to Mr. Arauz, the following of which is an excerpt: Dear Mr. Arauz, Being a turtle biologist and conservationist, you examined studies that provided you with valuable insight into the many hazards experienced by our marine life caused by negligence. While viewing a film on the latest fishing techniques, you unexpectedly discovered a gruesome scene – fishermen brutally hacking off the fins of living sharks! Shocked by this inhumane act, you were determined to expose the needless cruel and painful torture of these ocean living beings. You secretly videotaped a film showing the illegal docking of a ship carrying 30 tons of shark fins, which meant an estimated 30,000 sharks had died for it, and released it to the media. Your bold and heroic move garnered public outcry and won full support from the Costa Rican public and international community to enforce the country’s existing laws against shark finning. It successfully paved the way for the new fisheries law which came into effect in 2005 legally putting an end to this tragic ordeal. With utmost appreciation, we thank you for bringing our world a step closer towards harmonized co-existence with all sentient beings. You truly deserve Sweden’s Göteborg Award for Sustainable Development. Congratulations! For your exceptional contribution to animal rights, for your heartfelt compassion and strength and for being a dedicated and noble role model, we hereby applaud and celebrate the heroic deeds of Sr. Randall Arauz, President of Programa Restauración de Tortugas Marinas. With Great Honour, Love and Blessings, Supreme Master Ching Hai Supreme Master Ching Hai contributed US$20,000 to PRETOMA to further their noble mission, with all her love and gratitude. She also provided the dedicated group many wonderful gifts including her #1 international bestsellers “The Birds in My Life,” “The Dogs in My Life” and “The Noble Wilds” along with other books such as “From Crisis to Peace,” lots of yummy vegan chocolates, some of her CDs and DVDs and a “Hero” t-shirt. On behalf of all my colleagues at PRETOMA, whom with I share this honor, I would like to thank Master Ching Hai for this Award. The truth is that these have been very hard years; it was a very long campaign. We had a great victory last week, on Friday. Everything is such a coincidence that falls into its right place at the right moment. And everything is... really is surprising. We are very grateful for this gesture. And definitely, we are touched. It motivates us to keep going ahead. We have grown a lot during the last years. We hope to keep growing. I have seen professional development also of a lot of colleagues here in the office. And this help from you is going to help us, continue with the work, to become stronger and try to end all this greed that exists nowadays with the exploitation of the sea, and try to achieve something more sustainable, and something more in peace with the oceans. Thanks a lot to everyone. Mr. Arauz also discussed the organization’s goals for the future. Well, we hope to continue growing. We look forward to having more and more political influence and that therefore depends on the quality of the science we do, the support that we have to do and the field work we do. That's why I especially thank Master Ching Hai, and all her collaborators here in Costa Rica, because this contribution, the aid that you are giving to us will allow us to continue to do our research, the marine areas that we are helping to take care and protect, tagging sharks, tagging sea turtles. In general, the hardest thing for us is to get money to do our research. Research is very expensive, and this fund is going to be especially dedicated to conducting research, which is what gives us technical credibility when we go to ask for political changes. And, well, I would like to personally thank Master Ching Hai for her support. This is a great collaboration. We will be in contact with you by sending our reports for you to see what we have achieved with this contribution, and we hope that we can develop a partnership with your association in the future. Thank you very much. Our hats are off to Mr. Arauz and all the other members of PRETOMA for your courage and selfless dedication in exposing the horrors of shark finning and preserving marine turtles. May PRETOMA continue its wonderful conservation work and help even more animals in need. We have to work harder in order for Costa Rica be a blue country to be a real model of promoting conservation of marine resources in the Eastern Pacific. There are tremendous challenges in conservation work, and many people quit because they can’t face the incredible odds. Randall is one of the tireless fighters who is not afraid to fail and will not stop fighting until he dies. Randall aligned himself with members of Congress and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in order to bring the Costa Rican shark finning policy to the United Nations. And we were able to get the United Nations General Assembly to call on all the nations of the world to land their sharks with the fins attached. Randall has taken Costa Rica from being a leader in shark finning to being a global leader in shark preservation.
