    Deep bows to my brothers for making this lifelong commitment. It was truly wonderful to have the opportunity to witness the occasion and look forward to many many years of serving beside you.

    I am humbled and feel gratitude to the point of tears for your support and presence. It was a beautiful ceremony - usually I have no problem finding words but today, not so easy. I have never such a deep emotional commitment to a path - while marriage and fatherhood are my life's vows, the ones I have taken and reaffirmed today guide me in my life as a father, husband, sangha member, and human being. It is so encompassing it is almost overwhelming. I could not have come this far without you - and the path forward is not to be traveled alone either. Thanks to sangha mates old and new - I look forward to many years of practice and celebrating life with you. I will do my very best to live my vows and practice thoroughly with you.

    Deep bows

    Thank you all for your kindness. I sometimes wish I could express myself as well as Yugen , even when he is at a loss for words but, seriously, I just want to say what he said _/\_

    Nine bows, Shokai

    I wish my clumsy words were enough to express my gratitude to all of you who have been with me, guiding my path.

    Thanks to Jundo and Taigu for their patience and for trusting me.

    In the path ahead, I'll do my best in serving the community.

    Congratulations and many bows to all 3 of you!
    I'm sorry I missed the ceremony but will watch it later.

    The best way to honour the women of the Prairies who won the right to vote a hundred years ago isn't a monument. It's you going out to vote.
