Rising Crimes

Anderson wore this tie for the first time since New Year's Live! And he looks so cute in his pink shirt. Quality of my pic is not good enough... We can't see the "pink" shirt.

The richer a country become, the poorer people's heart will become. I heard Wangari Maathai say something like this. Watching this report, I was reminded of her remark.

Juvenile crimes are becoming more and more heinous here in Japan, too. More than ten years ago, a 14-year-old boy shivered the nation when he killed a little boy, cut his head and put it on the school gate. A few years ago, a 12-year-old school girl killed her classmate during lunch break at school.

Are they to blame? As I said a few months ago, children mirror our society. It is our responsibility to build a society where children feel safe to live.
