My name is Akio Tanaka.

I have been a believer of the network since 1970, and served as the PNB Secretary in 2017.

I do not have much original to say, but the following sentiments have been my guide.

 

“Every government is run by liars. Nothing they say should be believed.”

—  I.F. Stone

 

Go tell, go tell all the little children

Tell all the mothers and fathers too

Now’s our last chance to learn to share

What’s been given to me and you

 

One blue sky above us,

One ocean, lapping all our shores.

One earth so green and round,

Who could ask for more?

 

And because I love you

I’ll give it one more try

To show my rainbow race

It’s too soon to die.

— ‘Rainbow Race’  Pete Seeger
