Wuri sirius is all ready for the big night!
During the past two months, she has been busy going back and forth between her home in Kanagawa Prefecture and Sendai city in Miyagi, where she was active as a volunteer working to restore her hometown.
This morning I got this message from her:
"Today, we had a joint rehearsal with the people and children of N.Y. at the Nippon Club in Midtown. Musically, I think we've done a really good job. Most of the tickets have already been sold, but I can arrange to get some if you send me a message by noon.
Tomorrow, I will sing for the people of New York who are giving their warm support to the devastated areas, and also for my friends around the world with my heartfelt gratitude."
Good luck and fighting^^

People with Dreams
"Perhaps the times of our most wretched suffering, and every moment after in which we work to heal ourselves, can be called the times which we are dreaming. When we train ourselves constantly and dream of the future we want, then that is the moment we most intensely recognize our own existence. A person without dreams is a person who is already dead. Anyone who says they do not need dreams or do not dream at all is merely in the grip of a nightmare. So I want to dream the best dreams possible. King Sejong’s dream was for the people to be happy, and that dream became the cornerstone for the invention of hangeul."
