Greeting from HAJAS President

To Heart of America Japan-America Society Members--

Everybody loves September!

We have passed through the hottest part of the year.  Normally we expect to get at least a hint of cooler weather.  Part of this is related to the calendar.  The solstice, in June, is the longest day in terms of sunlight hours, so you would expect more heat.  The equinox, when daylight hours and night-time hours are equal, suggests cooler weather is on the way.  The equinox is also observed as a holiday in the Buddhist calendar in Japan.  There is much to enjoy about September.  However, in the current global situation, we should remember those who are still suffering from extreme weather events and conditions.  I like to emulate the Japanese, enjoying the change of the seasons.  At the same time, I hope the world can avoid the worst effects of climate change.
