世田谷暴走族
c0157558_2263147.jpg
小田急線・梅ヶ丘はいいところ。おいしいすし屋さんやケーキ屋さんやパン屋さんが並ぶ。
でも駅は無法地帯。自転車で通ってはいけない駅の構内をおばさんもおねえさんも子供も大人もどんどん飛ばして突っ切る。決まりどおりに降りて通行する人は1割程度かな?ある親子は子供と一緒に来て構内でぐるぐると自転車の追っかけっこ。
甲州街道や環七通りに行かなくたって暴走族に会える。
いかにも普通の人が悪いことを平然とできる。これは怖い。その「自分勝手」さがすべての悪の基盤となる。それができる人を木に例えるならその幹は腐っている。そういう木が立ち並ぶ森(=私たちの社会)は悲しい森。歩きタバコも多い。
注意しない駅員も、一般の人も同じ森の木。
「自分中心」はあらゆる悪の種(たね)。それがこれほど多くの普通の人に植え付けられているのを目撃するのは悲しい。せっかくいい街なのに。

Anne Frank
c0157558_2282692.jpg
I regularly visit Anne Frank's house in Amsterdam.
Have been to other places she used to live as her
family was running away from the Nazis.
Aachen/Aken, a southern city in Germany is a
pretty little town where Anne's mother Edith was
born and they lived a while in this town too right
before crossing the border to Holland.

Before the family went hiding in the last secret
house, they lived in another apartment in
Amsterdam where now nobody pays a visit. I sat
at the stone-made footsteps that leads to her
door on the second floor and looked at the small
park in front. Then I could hear Anne and her
sister Margot's footsteps going up and down,
playing in the park.

She had a dream to be a writer and wanted to
help other people. She made that dream come
true and I'd like to thank her so much for what
she has done and is still doing.
Her diary encouraged Nelson Mandela and his
friends when they were in prison.

I would like to encourage everyone to visit her
house and any other places in the world where
innocent people got killed. Take your friends and
family and that's the best way to grow ourselves
and make a better place to live.

Thank you, Ms Miep for risking your own life and
helping Anne's family while they were hiding and
for keeping Anne's diary. You are the truest human.

To Dear Anne (1929-1945),
