Today's presentation is the gist of my thinking of the book I was recommended , 'It’s the festival of life every day' , written by Kazutoshi Kusaba, 59 Arita pottery ceramic painter.
The memorial service (funeral) is usually supposed to be sorrowful because people grieve for the dead.
But people in Okinawa get merry with singing there.
They say you owe what you are to your parent. Your parent did what they were to their parent (your grand parent) .Thus you do what you are to your ancestor.
Sometime you may die, but you can convey your life to your child. Your child can do his life to your his child (your grand child). Thus you can do your life to your descendant.
So People in Okinawa think if they were merry in the memorial service, the dead would be delighted.
There is no one whose character is the same. So we should respect anyone whose life is important and connected for the future.
Any way, people say the child grows up to see the back of the parent.
Actually the parent who have a good relationship with each other bring the child good confidence for the person. Therefore the parent must not lose trust.
That applies to the teacher.
Here is the story of the teacher of an elementalary school causing great impression.
A pupil in the first graders got a high evaluation at the school life. But he lowered that evaluation as the school year advanced.
There were domestic circumstances we could not understand by apperance.
The teacher supported him kindly and in the end he was able to escape from such a bad situation. The teacher helped him out.
Then he became a doctor and they still continue to have a great relationship.
Now, there are lots of sad cases, including the teacher's bullying or the domestic violence. This book seems to reduce the heavy burden when we are worried about these affairs.
There were good tips today's class.
