The couple, whose son died at a pediatric center northwest of Tokyo following a yearlong battle with leukemia, is trying to support distraught and worn-down families by providing them with nutritious and well-balanced homemade meals at the facility.

The Aokis are gems.

But why are these people of modest means tasked with helping the needy when the rich virtue signal with lavish foundational gifts that the truly needy rarely see and many of vast means just content with giving yearly greetings praising those who actually help those in need.


The reality for the "elite" in Japan and elsewhere the poor are an abstraction and in their privilege can never imagine themselves in similar situations.
