Simon J. Simonian wrote this note to accompany the article:
Thank you for sharing my recent interview in Epoch Times with Western Friend on-line. It was for the benefit of the general public. I have been a lifelong Friend and recently served as clerk of Nominating and Peace and Social Action Committees of Santa Monica Friends meeting. The awards given to me were rewards to inspire me as a Friend to work harder in the service of peace and justice for all. Another interest of mine is in "righteousness," how to understand and implement it. I would encourage Friends with similar interests to communicate and collaborate with me for the common good. Thank you.
In peace, justice and Light,
