Day 557 { More suicides In Japan } Sunday, September 27, 2009


Day 557 { More suicides In Japan }


Went to church today, 1st time in over 2 months. The Chinese persons that were there, were teaching me some words in Chinese..... Kanji in Japanese and Chinese have the same meaning but wayyyy different pronunciations.

Suicide tally topped 22,000 through August

The number of people who committed suicide from January through August came to 22,362, an increase of 4.5 percent from a year earlier, according to the National Police Agency.

If the pace continues, the annual figure could surpass the record 34,427 marked in 2003.

So far this year, 16,008 men and 6,354 women have taken their own lives. There have been year-on-year increases in every month since January.

I am still wondering why so many people are doing this.... Even one of my friends said a student of his stabbed herself to death... Jeez.... What is wrong with these people???
