Follow-up on the story of how the longterm bullying of my then 10-year-old son (to the point of him wishing he wouldn't wake up in the morning) was dealt with applying aikido principles to his situation: see post nr 11
He is today 15 years old, and he still does not practice any aikido (I still do!) - but the other day, he came home very proud about the written exam he just took (English as a second language). He read it to me. The subject was "Beauty comes from the inside" and he chose to tell this story and what it meant to him. I was very moved - I'm very proud of him and I'm so grateful to aikido and to all who've helped me on my aiki-way. You've helped my son as well!
