A opinion of high school students.

There was a opinion of high school students like this, on the paper in April. It said, " Stop the use of school as military establishments and give back smiling faces of children.
The students say that,
things, we can hear from school, are sound of gunfire not laughing voice of children.
This is the situation of domestic warfare in Syria, they think.
They studied,
the present of Syria in the after-activities called " similated UN " that should study the world situation. And they felt their anger to this realities of Sylia.
That is,
school is used as military establishmentsand children can't study at school.
Then, they have started, " The campaign for the declaration of school protection." That was started by the governments of Norway and Argentina in 2015. 74 countries already signed that.
The students demand the signature of Japan government. That is their perpose.
They say they are little influence but not power lessness.
Decidedly, they are correct and their activity is great, I think. But they should feel more and more that there's war is the basis. War is the root of all evil.
If the peace turns into reality, conversely, the military establishments ues as schools like Aichi University, Jishuhkan high school, Toyohasi technical high school and Toyohashi comercial high school.

Our golden wedding aniversary.

Last Saturday(6/2), my wife and I had a party for our golden wedding aniversary. It was held at Genji restaurant by her neeces and relatives. About thirty members came together there. When we arrived the place for the party, all of them were there.

" Good morning!" I said habitually.
" Congraturations!" they responded.

I was surprised a little. Today is different usually.
But I didn't feel yet it had been just fifty years ever since that day.
We have no kids.
So our every day has no change, I feel.
Then, that day, some people were babies or young children and today they were good fathers and mothers have fine sons and daughters. When I saw them I felt that it was really happening to be past just fifty years.
Thinking back on our histry, we had some turning points.
We married in the same work place, but now we retired along time ago.
We have built two new houses.
We were present at our each mother's deathbed.
her neece, who was one of the promoters of this party, graduated the upbringing specal school staying our home for three years.
And we were in charge of a student staying abroad from Australia of Jishukan high school for a year.
In the meantime we had some foreign trips.
By the way, first we reserved this party, because that was cheeky, we thought.
But they said this party was also a chance to foster closer relationships with them. listening to it, that is a good chance. So we agreed to hold this party.
At the party, many presents came and went each other, and the perpose was achieved, I think.
                   Thank you.

mat 20th, my wife and I watched a movie called " A cicada living 8 th day " or " We birth " at one coin theater.
One coin theater means a party of watching films with one hundred yen a person. it has been held every month.at Aitopia, Azumada Sakaue, 東田坂上, street car stop by Toyohashi north branch of Toyohashi pension union. We have took part in this party almost every month. I love plays and my wife loves films. So this party is one of our home events.
We didn't have any backpround knowledge about this movie, " A cicada living 8 th day " and took part this party. The import of this movie was what I couldn't think completely.
What do you have in mind from this title ?
It was that,
A woman kidnaps a baby from the family in glad of the birth of the daughter. She become the woman who can't have a baby by the father of the baby.
The baby grows up with her real mother but she can't become familiar with the real mother. However she can't break bonds of kidnapping mama who brought her up till she is four years old. Then she trudges along her complicated life.
Cicada is living under the ground for long time and when it gets on the ground life, it can live only three days, no, seven days. Sothe cicada lives 8 th day is lonly and sad. But it is a cicadathat can look at the world nobody can look at.  Still is it happy ?
The movie starts from TWO mothers testimony at the trial of the kidnapper.
To start with, this kidnap was a revenge but little by little, she loves that baby. This kidnapper grows her up till four years old in hard escape journey. The daughter, understands as areason, but she is attrated the kid napper mama's bonds.
And the movie has ended when she visited the port of ferry that is the place she had parted kidnapper mama crying and that mama captured there.
I can understand these young member's mind, I thought.
The orignal auther was Tunoda Mitsue, 角田光恵.

When should I give up my driver's license ?

Last week I told you about the renewal of my driver's license and the problem was my visual power. After that, I immediately have had one more problem about my license. I have read a person's opinion on the news paper. He said, " I'm fine after parting my car." He continued to wavere on parting his cherished caror not.He is driving it for 19 years. He is 79years old and he has been driving for almost 55tears. He feels proud his driving skills. But his classmate died by a car accident for driving. It was one chance to part with his car. He decided to do that with the courage. And he has returned his driver's license, too. His license was gold.
My driver's license is gold, too.
I have thought that I would return my license when I have a big car accident. But I have noticed to do that before i have the car accident after I read this opinion. But when I thought my life since I return my license, I can't do that.
My car is not only means to move. It was my life itself. Now I'm getting weak mystrength, so if I wouldn't have my car, I couldn't do anything.
Leaving far events, it's almost imposible to take part in activities in the city without my car. Because the bus on regular routes concentrate to Toyohashi train atation, so we feel that crossing the city by bus was inconvenience.
At the same time, my car is my foot, it controlmy whole life, I think.
                                                                 Thank you.

The renewal my driver's license.

This April, I was able to renew my driver's license. Of couse it's gold. My driving history is about 50 tears over. But it not so easy, because my visual power is not so good. This time, my glasses were up one degree my left eye myopia(近視)and two degree my right eye astigmatism(乱視). But my visual power was 0.7 that is limited visual power for the license.
First, I got the license when I workd at Seishu high school. When I graduated from the driving school, my instrucror said I didn't have good driving skills  but I won't drive recklessly as I was a teacher, I remember.
Speaking of thing I can't forget, I have one more thing.
It was that.
When I Came back to Toyohashi from Shizuoka after visiting my relatives, I was checked my driver's license in Shizuoka city. After check, the policeman said he shoud think I took care to come back to Toyohashi. I said to him, " Thank you." And I came back without disturbing. After a couple of days, I had a notice from Toyohashi police station. It said I should get driver's ricense again if I want to drive a car, because my license ran out. I neded to be thankful for that policeman's big permissible amout.
Fortunately, in this case, by the changing legal system, I got it again with only aptitude test. But I must put on my car the mark of a seed leaf means a biginer driver.
After that, the renewal system of driver's license have changed on birthday systen, soon.
                                                                       Thank you.

taking bath is luxury?

It has been said that we, japanese, like to take a bath.
I'm one of the lovers to take a bath,too.
When I was a child, there was a public bath  alled " Kabuyu " in front of my house. The second son of " Kabuyu " was one of my good friends. So we played something something and sometimes did a mischief. After that, I incidentally took a bath with him before opening. My mother surprised when she looked at her son who became neat and clean after taking bath, I heard for long time after. Unfortunately, he had died early in life at the reconstruction site of " Kabuyu " after World War Ⅱ for coming down from the roof. This might make me to love bath.
But in the world, thers are many places where they feel it7s aluxury to take a bath. No. Actually, there is a plce it is luxury to take a bath, I heard.
At Johannesburg in south Africa, on Asahi News Papaer correspondent says that it is one of the most enjoyments to take a bath once or twice a week. And at Cape Town, separated about two nours from Johannesburg by air plane, it is exactly luxury to take a bath, he writes. Because Cape Town is serious drought that is once a hundred years. So the water usage for each person a day is limited 50 L. Then it is usual that the water saving after that has been used shower, is used for toilet, I heard.
And at the area, that is not deveropment and improvementof water and sewer services yet, they don't only have bathtub but also shower facility. So they must wash their bodies with rainwater that saved in the wooden backet, he says.
It might be taken ill of the Earth that an area has a drought, on the otherhand it has a deluge.
              Thank you.

I brought a shprt news today. It was from NHK radio English program.

That is;
Two notes written by physicist Albert instein have fetched 1.8 million dollars at an auction in Jerusalem.
The physicist, known for his theories of relativity, gave the notes to a bellboyin lieu of a tip while staying at the Imperial Hotel in 1922. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics in the previous year.
The notes are written in German. One days, " A calm and humble life will bring more happiness than the pursuit of success and constant restlessness that comes with it."
The other reads, " Where there's a will, there's a way."
The auction house says the notes were put up for sale by a relative of the bellboy.
When Einstein handed them to the Japanese bellboy, he reportedly said thier value might become much higher than that of a normal tip.

Hokuriku trip

The en of March, I took part in the trip of the pension unio. It was one night trip to Ishikawa prifecture. The inn was 龍泉閣, Ryuusenkaku, in 辰口温泉,Tatunokuchi hotspring that is called an annex to 金沢市,Kanazawa city.
The pension union is, as you know, an Organizatio of a whole country for the pensioners. It was formed for getting more pension and joining in hobby group. I have joined the trip, the cooking class for men and one coin theater that is a kind of party for watching movies and one coin mans one hundred-yen coin.
Ryuusenkaku inn Tatunokuchi hot spring is famous for the biggest mixed bathing hot spring in Japan, I heard. But we needed to wear, a simple cloth. It's a little bit unfortunate for me, as there are no cloth mixed hot spring in 東北地方, Touhoku area in Japan, (north-east aria,) and Europe.
The mixed bath wearing bathing suit is not so rarity, as the bubble bath, side of our swimming pool of Axtos that we make use every other day, is also mixed bath wearing swiming suit.
In that trip, we visited the museum of 北前船,Kitamae-bune, and I was able to understand of the origin of a word, " まとも,真面 " matomo, means 真艫. Kitamae-bune is a big merchant ship that goes to 北海道, Hokkaido and come back to Ohsaka by way of 北前, Kitamae, 北陸地方, Hokuriku aria from the latter half Edo period to Meiji period. They got a benefiy of about Ⅰ億円,¥100,000,000.- (present value) by one navigation.
Kitamae^bune is a big saling ship with one mast and one sail, no oarsman. And we call the top of ship is 舳先, Hesaki, bow and the end is 艫, Tomo, stern. And the right behind wind is the best wind. So the right wind is called " Matomo-no(na)-kaze,真艫の風."
     Thank you.

Pyeong Chang Paralympics 2018.

Pyeong Chang,平昌 2018 Olympics of winter had closed and Pyeong Chang Paralympics 2018
of winter opened at March 9th.
As I had some spare time, I was watching the games tightly on TV. And I could find and know some things about these games and I was very impressed with them.
First of all, I was surprized by their techniques.
They were doing well their skiing, skating and snow boarding that we, have arms and legs completely, feel to be difficult to do them. There are three style of skiing that are the standing style, sitting style slalom and biathlon.
The skiers with one ski showed excellent skiing down and slalom a steep slope. It's a wonderful, I thought. The skiing of the visually impaired persons are wonderful, too. They are skiing down with their guide the same slope of no visually impaired persons.
They are skiing and slalom with calling out of guide and skiing sound of skis. Then, the Gelende changes the silent world with the board saying, " Be quiet."
There is biathlon for the visually impaired percons, too.
Biathlon is a skiing settled distance, afterb that the visually impaired person also shooting of five shots. They aim at the target withguidesound that is getting loud when the muzzle of the rifle points target. It has a 150m penalty skiing for a mis-shot.
The other side, para-ice hockey is a lively and soul-stirring game. It7s a combative sport with speed and throw their weight each other. The players are all chair skatingwith one skate. One skate seems to fall down easily but to pickthemselves up easily, too. This game is, inprinciple, men and momen mix-team, Ⅰheard. I was surprised again.
                  Thank you.

Tezuka Manga.

 投稿者:george  投稿日:2018年 3月20日(火)15時01分45秒
  (3/14)
I found an article of the newspaper that an American, Mr. Frederic L Shodt, received the prize of the Japan F0undation, 国際交流基金, because of spreding Japan Manga, comic to USA.
He said that when he met Manga," 火の鳥, Hinotori" Fire Bird, his life had changed. In it, he found " Transmigrationof soul, 輪廻転生," and " Bioethics, 生命倫理."
At once, he visited Tezuka production, 手塚プロ, and asked to translate Tezuka works. Somehaw, he and Mr. Tezuka Osamu, 手塚治虫, were congenial friend to each other.
And when Tezuka visited USA, he was appointed Tezuka's interpreter. His work, " Manga! Manga!" published in 1983, is called " The Bible of Manga " introduced Japan Manga Culture to USA.
Frederic has translated not only " 火の鳥 " " 鉄腕アトム, Iron-arm Atom " but also   ”はだしのゲン, Bare foot Gen ”by 中沢啓治, and etc.
I remembered I had changed my way of thinking about Manga. Then, I oposed Manga was bought by the high school library. But when I felt the truth and justice that Tezuka Manga has, I have changed approval.
Transmigration of our soul in " 火の鳥 " that is born again and becomes young again by throwing into the crater herself if she get injured. And contradiction in " 鉄腕アトム " that is a confrantation between human being and robots made by human being. They are Manga has reading worth, I think.
So I'm reading " 火の鳥 " again, now.
                                         Thank you.
