The Peace Prayer
Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is error, the truth;
Where there is doubt, the faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.
(Extracted from the Peace Prayer of St Francis of Assissi)

I am sorry I could not be in New York, at the grand celebration of PPSEAWA at 90! A CD and lovely photo montage was given to me for consolation, by those sisters from Hawaii who had the fortune to be there.
However, over the years of affiliation with the organization, I have also become somewhat of its Historian ( for 10 years) : I do recall earlier PPSEAWA mile stone birthday events we celebrated here in Honolulu and in the PPSEAWA Region, which I was happy to attend:
PPSEAWA Hawaii, with its auspicious history and years of great and wonderful women members, celebrated its 90th anniversary in New York City a month ago with attendees from eight sister countries. It is with great pride that our PPSEAWA here in Hawaii continues to flourish and carry on the job of being the chapter that started this women’s organization in 1928.

Dear PPSEAWA Hawai’i sisters,
PPSEAWA sisters gathered in New York for a magical evening on March 16, 2018, celebrating PPSEAWA’s founding 90 years ago in Hawaii.
The festivities included a three-course dinner, a cake cutting ceremony with PPSEAWA International Executive Committee members Rahmah Abdul Hamid (President), Mondhiya Bhangshba (1st VP), Akari Yamada (2nd VP), Mei Chuan Chao (Secretary), and Susan Iwamura (Treasurer), and a slideshow commemorating the history of PPSEAWA.
