Blogging Break

Jett and Fox

The boys are out of school, so we are doing something that many kids don’t get to do nowadays–playing. For the first three weeks of summer, we are going to swim, bike, watch movies, and eat Popsicles, so I won’t be blogging too much.

In addition, after the shootings in Isla Vista, SPU, and Vegas, I’ve also dedicated a large part of my life to spreading compassion for boys. I’m completing an audio series called Raising Compassionate Boys. I believe that compassion is the missing piece that no one is talking about. Everyone is talking about gun control, but we forget that Elliot Rodger killed half of his victims with a knife. If we instill compassion in our boys, there would be less shootings, rapes, bullying, viral humiliation, suicide, and suffering.

I’m also starting a Compassion for Men’s Group. We meet every second Monday in Cupertino, CA. If anyone is interested, email me at

Lastly, I’ve been writing for The Good Men Project. It is a great website that is redefining what it means to be a man in the 21st century. Here are a few of the articles I’ve written lately:

Hope everyone has a peaceful and joyful summer. See you after the July 4th weekend. {{{Hugs}}} Kozo

    Enjoy your Summer, great to hear you are doing “playing ” with the boys, yes so many parents forget the quality time. Enjoy every minute of it and make great memories for your boys! ♥

      Thanks, Ute. Yes, I’m surprised how many kids these days don’t get to play, even in summer. Some of Jett’s friends are in math camp all summer. 😦 {{{Hugs}}} Kozo

    Wonderful work you are doing, Kozo. In particular, I appreciate that you see all of this violence as more than gun control. It is a cultural issue for all of us, men and women, and I believe we need to look within before we can change what is outside us. Enjoy your time with your boys.

    • Kozo Hattori says:

      Wise words, Karen. Yes we need to look within. As men, I really believe we need to reawaken our compassion. Imho, women have the challenge of finding forgiveness from the injustices. Hope you are enjoying the Florida summer. {{{Hugs}}} Kozo
