"Not everyone of course" it hastens to add.
That's where ya lost me. So basically ya want to vent and you need to write an article.
Good news is others need to vent too so you're article will be popular with commenters.

The tug of war. People and societies struggle with the confines of structure and culture. That's not enough, let's throw gender and race in the blender too without neglecting sports and politics.
Modern societies may need to be both gender specific as well as androgynous. Then just as you get everything prepared a virus or natural disaster comes along there ya go, down the drain.
So realistically, ability serves people and advances societies most.
Gender and race balancing seems to look good on paper and in some areas but I'm not sure it produces the best performance and result even though I would like to see more female politicians. I am thankful I can say I am not the reason there are no women contenders in Japan's leadership race. Moreover, I encouraged and taught many intelligent Japanese females who would be perfect for the role.

No, the Olympics ought not be held - "by all means".

Artists and musicians used and sold as national exports. There have been many success stories. Often the "product" is happy with the arrangement.
Of course I wish all pop bands success. I can't listen to them for an extended period of time though.
A flash in the pan ~
Are we all flashes in a pan?
Anyway get rid of the virus and remember where it comes from.

The guy is a loser at any age. Now he is is more trouble than he had before. Geesh.
Let's move on to the wife. Oh, we're in Japan... we can't support her or her family because we don't know her name ~
So yeah, maybe social networking needs an overhaul so support pages could be setup for actual support for actual humans...
It seems to be habitual error that wields "50 year old blah blah 20 year old" as news.

Please consider international frameworks other than anything co-led by the WHO particularly if you are concerned about the entire population of a nation.
Good ears will perk at talk of effective vaccines.

They are there to take selfies. Got it? Good.
They want the sunset and beach and ocean in the shot too. Naturally.
They never know the best spot and frankly I get bored after watching so many ocean going sunset viewing beach questers settle for a mediocre image.
Nah, I'll pass on the more confidence thing.

I approached three women on the beach yesterday and told them where they could get some good selfies of the water and sunset and they appreciated the information.
I dug out quickly because I thought they'd enjoy the view to themselves more than with me hanging around.
Throw sand on someone? Nah, not my style.

Very sad indeed.
If you are in a position to educate people about swimming I encourage you to do so. Encourage them to help others also. Water knowledge could possibly have prevented this tragedy.
I have trained many in my area and it has not been enough. Even here locally there are a surprising number of people of all ages who are not comfortable with water and we live on the beach.

PM Abe was generally respected by many of my colleagues.
Most people are probably worrying, anxious or nervous about the problems his replacement might make.

For people and leaders to attend a ceremony marking an anniversary to the end of a war seventy five years ago is remarkable and I am thankful and grateful for it.

Good on the relatives.
I hope they find some comfort and healing.

I love a fresh dip in the sea but it seems Obon is a better time to consider departed family therefore I refrain... I'm good with it because I live near the ocean and can walk from my place to a beach anytime.
I notice I'm a minority nowadays.
I remember a time when I would accompany friends to their relatives graves and we placed flowers, burned incense and said prayers. I thought it was very interesting when they would leave bottles of Japanese wine.
The sea is a good place to let salt wash germs and dead skin off your body.
Don't forget your sunscreen and hydrate.

I think the world should forget. It will probably prefer not remembering. It wasn't the worlds fault anyway. The world didn't drop bombs on itself. It gets enough damage from solar flares/bursts, asteroids and space debris probably. It might not be too fond of typhoons either.
To the world it would have to remember the reason why the bombs were dropped here anyway and it probably benefits more by concentrating and or focusing on other things.
I was born in America and am quite proud not to have had involvement in the droppings.
Hiroshima and Nagasaki were important before the detonations and I am more interested in that than in the execution of a militaristic decision. Likewise I would like to think the world and the people living in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, including survivors, mean more to me as well.

Tests and vaccines. Everything other, excluding isolation, is a compromise.

Simple, safe and easy testing would end these problems.
Dude, go ahead and throw stones ~ trash my car. I got ya on video and look at this - I test negative for the virus. Oh you haven't taken the test yet? Shame, shame, oh and thanks for the new car bud.
Love you too.

So under the revision only asymptomatic covid-19 positive carriers will be responsible for spreading the virus? Oh, you won't be able to test them will you?
