butterflyToday is again the anniversary of the end of the WWII in Japan (and many other countries of course). It is wonderful to live in peace. It is wonderful to have a warm bed to sleep in. It is wonderful to be able to live with loved ones.

BTW so happy that Japanese Prime Minister is now KAN Naoto. Unfortunately Minister of Justice CHIBA Keiko was lost her seat in the House of Councillors on July 11, 2010. I think that it is largely because Chiba is against death penalty and did not sign to execute anyone. I heard that Prime Minister keeps her as Minister of Justice until September, but she should continue her role to enlighten people in Japan. It is honestly barbaric and childish to think that killing someone would solve the issue and/or make someone else feel better. It is disgraceful that many Japanese approves death penalty.

The link below is about a Japanese movie Caterpillar. I have not seen it yet but heard that it was a great antiwar movie.

    • Current ongoings of Japan… we have over US10 trillion of deficit and the economic recession is going almost 20 years (!), yeah. But at least Liberal Democrat regime is gone for now😀 Still too many problems, too much social pressure especially against women and children (many have a patriarchic & conservative value)… yet a wonderful country in terms of food as you know!! Great if you could visit my country🙂

      • I think you have talent to sum up so much history in just one short paragraph. Despite the economic struggle and conservative oppression of women, I would still definitely love to visit🙂 Hope you are well
