#147- On Mother’s Day

******** Mother

Mother’s Day is coming soon…

I am thinking of people who recently lost a mother or children, especially I am thinking of people who recently lost their loved ones in the disaster areas (earthquake and tsunami areas in Japan / tornado areas in U.S.A.).

And I am thinking of people who don’t have a mother for long time or never met a mother.

Even though, Osama bin Laden (who was killed yesterday) was a bad guy (we don’t know for sure that he was a bad person), I am thinking of his mother…

I wish happiness for those people.


******** Life

Everyone knows that life is precious, but many people kill each other in this world. Why?

Last night, when I was watching CNN (reporting the death of Osama bin Laden) and I saw many people were cheering and celebrating the death of Osama bin Laden, I was so sad to see those people on TV.

How could people celebrate Osama bin Laden’s death? He has family and some people are crying for his death.

No matter what, we shouldn’t celebrate someone’s death.

I think that the justice is not coming from the murder and the victory is not coming from the murder. The murder is not the “justice solution”. Murder is murder. War is war. Terror is terror.

On 9-11-2001, I was shocked to see that many people were celebrating, and on 5-1-2011(yesterday), I was also shocked to see that many people were celebrating. These people are the same. There is no “justice” for murder or war or terror.

I hope those people realize that we are the same human being and we are coming from the Mother Nature & mothers.

We must love each other, and appreciate & respect for our mothers.


I wish happiness for everyone.

Happy Mother’s Day to you.
