The lady in the middle in the picture is Rie Saito, she is a member of Tokyo North ward assembly.
I went to "Town Meeting" that was held by a political party she belongs to.
She is deaf but she's making positive changes in the assembly, and I think it's very admirable.
I also met a lady on the right in the pic, Arisa, she's deaf but she's a performer.
She sings and dances, performing all over Japan.
I was happy to become friends with her too:)
I helped Rie when she had an election campaign in last April.
Some people said she can't be an assemblywoman because she has the disability, but she got the most votes and she won.
She said, if you work hard, be creative, and if you have support/understandings from people, you can make things happen.
I think, everyone has something that he/she is not good at, one way or another.
It may seem like a disadvantage, but depending on how you see it and how you use it, you can make something that looks impossible possible!
And she's a living proof of that!
I also listened to the speech of a Diet member and a Tokyo metropolitan assembly member.
I was glad to see there're politicians who have real passion and warm heart to make the society better for people.
I had a great time and I'm so glad that I went there.
Big thanks to them and big respect for them!
Thank you for visiting and reading my blog post.
Hope you have a blessed day/night with lots of love❤️
"SADAKO's Paper Cranes ~connect the world~
The film is about a story of Sadako Sasaki, well known though a story of thousand paper cranes.
She was in Hiroshima when the atomic bomb was dropped.
If you don't know about her, here's wikipedia Sadako Sasaki
This girl plays little Sadako, and I play grown Sadako.
In the movie, Sadako is brought back to life today, and meets a boy who is from Fukushima, where nuclear plants are, and was devastated by 311 earthquake.
They travel around the world and see how important it is to achieve world peace.
It shows what's really important in life and what we need to change.
I'm very happy to be a part of it because it has great messages.
I dedicated my heart to play the role in this movie, hoping for peaceful world.
