Words of Wisdom
A very important monk in the area died 2 days ago. I went to the ceremony which runs over several days and will be attended by thousands of people. My friend was introducing me to the new head monk (she spoke Mon, a local language)...this is Steve, is volunteering to help people in the area, he is from America. The monk thought a minute. I was interested in hearing his words of wisdom. Then, he spoke. Fa translated...."He said American...you can fire guns there"; and that was that.
