THIS IS A
CLOUD DREAM full of WISHES...
This is me Dodie.
Sitting here after watching a video; which came after being on here and speaking to butterfly?
" GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES."
Of course it isn't just a video, it's a Ghibli Video. you know the Studio who gave you Spirited away etc not real character, yes they are they are characters as in Manga, Anime and director Isao Takahata, set in Japan during World War II, the film focuses on Seita and his little sister Setsuko. But that is all you need to know of the film. That is not why I am here for the first time in My Journal telling you of my feelings of this day at this hour.
I suppose I hope that the outcome will change; but Takahata, nor Ghibli tell you how it could have been.Yes I guess it bought the war to an end, but it didn't end all wars, did it ? You see not everybody has watched 'Grave of the Fireflies' maybe they should.
What was it the Truman said when he received the results from the Anola Gay. "Come on boys let's go home, we hope this will be a warning to the military."
This was just days before I was born on the 1st Sept. 1944.
Did you know it was supposed to be the final conflict.... Who do you think, was kidding who?
Days later they dropped another bomb this time on Nagasaki, eventually the Japanese surrendered, the 2nd World War was over.So what made me think of this as I write my journal ?Well, as I said in my introduction I have a number of web sites, one of which goes out to all the children of the world. There is very little chance that all the children will see it, but it makes Me see an awful lot I had forgotten about, since my hippy youth of love and peace and ban the bomb campaigns
THESE WERE MY DREAM WISHES....
And here I am on the 10th October 2010, watching the Commonwealth games in India wondering;"Wow! there's a lot of money they have.'But none of it is for the children.'"
HAVE YOU EVER BEEN TO NEW DELHI. ?And then like a person who has the need to feel hurt, I take down 'Fireflies' and watch, and cry and inside I know that tonight many more fireflies will die all over the world.
THERE WILL BE NO MORE
DREAM WISHES FOR ANYONE.
