when I read the story of what happened to Takashi Saito the senteen year old sumo wrestler who was kill by his stablemaster.. I felt compelled to cry.
is seem to me the so much savagetry is unecessary..
I feel so sorry for the kid who couldn't make longer in this sometimes very bad world.
My prayers be with him forever..
