Posted in: Japan's youth suicides hit 30-year high See in context

We just returned from Japan visiting family.

There's just so much stress put on Japanese to hang on to all the old traditions. I wish they would let go of some of the strict traditions and let people be more relaxed at work, school, everywhere. My husband has been in America longer now than Japan and when he gave his brother a hug goodbye - I smiled when his brother returned the hug. Hugging my family members is always met with awkwardness. I know they love me....they just don't hug me when I hug them.

It breaks my heart that suicide is on the uptick.

At least they don't have guns...
