Would an inspirational video count? This one is short, and it will either inspire or send me into angst, depending on mood. I still love it though ( not mention hearing his fabulous voice).

Inspirational quotes are for the most part written and circulated for the losers of life so they can feel better about themselves.

I love the ones that are like "Money is not that important... It is family, friends, good health and laughter that are the most important"

We all know that money is the MOST important thing in the world (If it wasn't some of you would have written me a cheque by now) and you don't hear poor people laughing very often...

But they sometimes take things.... My Uncle Walter had one come down and hit him... He lost his left eye... I was very traumatic for the 10 year old I was at the time... Eye sockets bleed a lot.

Showa is the name by which the emperor Hirohito is known now that he is dead. I don't know what in particular Showa day commemorates, though.

Many things were impossible for Christopher Reeve, so I guess he didn't choose hope.

Showa Day is celebrated in Japan to commemorate the birth date of Emperor Showa or Hirohito, the emperor of pre and post-World war II. Showa Day is a national holiday and part of the Golden Week which includes other notable Japanese holidays such as the Constitution Day (Kenpo kinenbi) on May 3, Greenery Day (Midori no hi) on May 4, and Children’s Day (Kodomo no hi) on May 5.

Showa is a posthumous name given to Emperor Hirohito after his death in 1989. Greenery Day was used to occupy the holiday on April 29th but was later scheduled on May 4.


History of Japan’s Showa Day

Before 1985, Emperor Hirohito’s birthday is celebrated on the 29th of April; however, upon his death in 1989, April 29 was designated as the Greenery Day, a day dedicated to nature and the environment. Emperor Hirohito is a lover of nature and an enthusiast in the field of marine biology. In fact, the Imperial Palace during his time has a laboratory dedicated to sea animals particularly to saltwater animal belonging to a class of sea animals known as Hydrozoans.

However, in 2007, a bill to put back Emperor’s Day to April 29 was passed. The bill however states that public celebration should encourage the public to reflect on the emperor’s troubled administration and Japan’s challenging recovery after the end of World War II.

Japan’s Showa Day: Traditions, Customs and Activities

The imperial palace and the government of Japan encourage the public to collectively reflect on the current condition of Japan and its future. It is also a time for Japan to commemorate the lives lost during World War II and acknowledge the efforts made when Japan is under economic and social recovery during the Showa the period.

Hotel accommodation rates and spike up during the Golden Week; this means that visiting tourists should request for reservation in advance to save on accommodation fees. As part of Japanese tradition, people visit Hirohito’s tomb in Hachiōji during the holiday.
I think they should observe it by holding baby showas.
