“Barn's burnt down...now I can see the moon.” Mizuta Masahide (水田 正秀, 1657–1723)
A seventeenth-century (Edo period) Japanese poet and samurai.
This short pays homage to the spirit of all those who have risen in challenging circumstances. For those who are able to find the determination, the courage and the wisdom to stand up. And we can all stand against intolerance and prejudice of any kind.
