In Region 7, there is a feeling of contrast, be it in the water or weather. One moment all is calm and then it’s a raging storm. Even over the vast lands there is the sense that change could come in a moment’s notice. Oddly, the Members of Region 7 have this same sense, for they instinctively know that change can and will come suddenly. Some of OCIPs most Preparatory thinkers have come from Region 7. It’s as if the land’s sense has been built into their very bones. The Great Creator has seen fit to also add another sense or skill; it’s one of calm under pressure. As but one example many a time there has been some great tragedy and people come to the aid of their fellows. This has always been a trait of the Members and Past Governors of Region 7 they jump right in and aid; all the while they do the work before them in a calm and forthright manner. This influence has been built into the being of OCIP. OCIP has often had the inner fortitude to look at the future in the same way. All can change in a mere moment, so we must be ready. Next, calm has been set into the being of OCIP. In a very real sense OCIP has had this Regions senses built into its bones as well.
