Hello, all :-)
Today, I would like to tell you to my volunteer activity. I belong to a volunteer activity group. We study a little the present situation of refugees who lives in Japan or plan Christmas party for them to remove their concern a little. And we are going to join Tokyo International festival tomorrow, and exhibit painting by some refugees. So, yesterday, I met a refugee who came from Iran to get his painting for the exhibition with some Japanese staves. Before I met him, I was taught a few Persian by Joe. So, I used the one, salaam when I first met him. سلا=Salaam means hello.Then, he smiled and said salaam. I was glad to hear the word. After that, he explained the image of his paintings. Many question marks were drawn on first painting. He explained many question marks means his feeling for twenty years since he came Japan. He has thought why he can’t be free. I was sad to hear that. Also, he said that he don’t want money but want to choose his way. I am thinking about what I can do for them even a small things.
Sorry for gloomy contents, but I want to let it be known that there are such people in the world.
I will write pleasant story next time:-)
