Week 2--Volunteer Activities

Peace Activity

When I was a junior high school student, I heard the experience of the Atomic Bomb and Depleted Uranium(DU). DU were used in Gulf War and Iraq War. I did not know about it at all. I was very shocked because I learned about only Atomic Bomb before this time. Then, I and my classmates thought that we want to act for Iraqi children. We held a panel exbition and a campaign to raise funds. We wanted more people to know about Iraq and to help Iraqi children's life. After the activity, we found it possible to do something for peace even as junior high school students. I thought that it is important to continue the activity. When I was a high school student, I became one of the peace messengers which means high school peace ambassadors. We collected the signatures to abolish nuclear weapons and make a peaceful world. In August, 2006, we went to Switzerland. We visited the United Nations in Geneva. We handed in the signatures and made speechs about War and Peace. I think that our power is small, but not powerless. I believe if everyone act for peace hand in hand, we can make a peaceful world.

Week 3--Picture

This is my birthday cake. My birthday was June 7. I became 20 years old. In Japan, 20 years old is legally adult.
My part-time job's friends made this cake for me. And they celebrated me and gave it to me along with presents. It was a really great birthday!!! I had never experienced such a great birthday before. However, now, I have many responsibilities because I am an adult. I will be a responsible person!!
