Opinion

It is amazing how these pseudo-journalists promptly forfeit the freedoms that cost their ancestors so dearly. Hopefully, they will be remembered as the traitors and cowards they are. People need to wake up and stop believing that this threat is something that will never reach them or their children. Isn’t it obvious that the threat is already here? The sad attack that they are discussing about plainly shows it.

Thanks for helping others.

There are uniform in junior high school and highschool in japan. I love uniform but I heared that many pepople do't like it …. I do't know why many pepople do't like it. Boys uniform are about tow kinds of uniforms. There are suit style or gakuran. Gakuran is very nice!! I think that cools doubles(^^)b! Japanese are baby face. So that dosen't suit japanese teenager. My junior high school and high school weren't gakuran. I feel regret (;つД`).
I'm concerned about uniform in the world these days.(^^)
