Hito(HEE-to). n.

person   people   others   humankind   disposition

The two lines of the Japanese character hito,
one short and one long,
lean on each other and represent the mutual support with every
relationship imaginable—
whether of small stature or large,
all things in creation depend on each other.
It is through these relationships,
both within and around us,
that we assist each other and experience
the fullness of life.
