I hope it isn't another selfish and tragic murder suicide.

Without knowing the facts, it seems like another selfish adult act.

No one can deny things are not like the way they were before in Japan, once long renowned as one of the safest countries in the world.

I imagine it will turn out to be a murder/suicide with the father using a charcoal burner in the car to kill himself and two children and it then went out of control setting the vehicle alight. I may be wrong but it won't change the fact that they are sadly all dead. I hope that the children at least were unconscious before burning to death.

Somewhere there is probably a grief-stricken mother.

STRESS the #1 killer"

In agreement, but "stress" is just the beginning. FATAL DESPERATION is the finale... and taking the children with is the sign of utter hopelessness for Life itself. How much of this DESPERATION lies latent in people around us cannot, apparently, be known until horrors such as these emerge. But we are blind in our own self-absorption or, perhaps, our own desperation. Is it possible for such desperation to become a 'pandemic' when an entire society becomes desperate because of conscienceless parasites and/or disillusionment with the LIES that we subconsciously accept to keep going? Keep an eye on the ever more disUnited States... and cry for the children.
