I am in Japan, and the news that reaches me from my country is not good. Terrorists continue to mourn families and decimate entire villages, forcing people to leave their communities.

Burkina Faso, where coups still occur frequently. I am reminded of the fact that we live in a peaceful Japan. However, when I saw the last scene, I felt the warmth of the people living in their homeland.
