Everyone, please. Be interested in international and social problems. I was just born in Japan by chance but if not, I would be among killings, discrimination, oppression and/or starvation and die. I would die. I cannot always say you can imagine such a situation, however, at least you should try to have an interest in these problems. I was just lucky. Or maybe so are you.
Sometimes, I wonder why there are few news about Syria here in Japan. Sometimes, I wonder why people only care about their unnecessary delicious food instead of exchange of lives. Sometimes, I wonder why people do not think about war. Because of these depression, I sometimes feel like crying. And yet, I suddenly realize — I am blessed with the opportunity of looking down at such problems and it also makes me feel like crying.
Then I cannot do anything because it would be sounded like a lie when I say something. There are no proof that it is not a lie, indeed. No one knows if it is a lie, as in, it might be a lie. I know nothing about other people. I know nothing about myself. I know nothing.
Where is the love?
“I think the whole world’s addicted to the drama
Only attracted to things that will bring you trauma
I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
As I’m gettin’ older y’all people gets colder
Most of us only care about money making
Selfishness got us following the wrong direction
Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feeling under
That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feeling down”
— The Black Eyed Peas ‘Where is the love‘
