北朝鮮が日本海に向け弾道ミサイルを発射した、

とのニュースを耳にする度、背筋が凍ります。


人間という動物は、とんでもない破壊力を持ったものを手にしたとき、

試したくなる生き物だと思うのです。

歴史が証明している通り、人はどこまでも善良であり、

またいとも簡単に冷酷な悪魔にもなる。


そして人間の想像力は、極悪悲惨なことに対しては、

いつも現実に及ばない気がします。


年が明けてから、そんな不安が膨らむばかりで

重たい気分からなかなか抜け出せません。

そういった時ほど、貪る様に本を読みます。

怖くて仕方ないから、先人から答えを求めようとする。


ただ、著名な作家の言葉もよりも、この頃よく思い出すのが

「手を握って、いつもありがとうと言ってくれる人がいる。それが一番」

というものです。


これは、FACEの仕事で「ケアメイト」という東京品川区にある

訪問介護事業の会社様の動画を作らせていただいたとき、

20代の女性職員の方が話してくれた言葉です。


「手を握って、いつもありがとうと言ってくれる人がいる。それが一番」


とてもシンプルなのですが、生きる上でこれほど大事なことはない、

と改めて思うからです。


世界を揺るがし続けている冷酷な指導者たちは、

あたたかく手を握られ、心の底から、ありがとう 

と言われたことが、なかったのかもしれません。

History has shown us that people are good to the end of the line.

And they can also easily become ruthless devils.


And I feel that the human imagination always falls short of reality when it comes to the most diabolical and tragic things.

I feel that the human imagination always falls short of reality.


Since the beginning of the new year, I have been feeling anxious and uneasy.

It is hard to get out of such a heavy mood.

At such times, I read books voraciously.

I am so scared that I try to seek answers from those who have gone before me.


But more than the words of famous writers, I often think of the words of a famous writer these days.

"There is always someone to hold your hand and say thank you. That's the best."

That is the best.


This is a video I made for Caremate, a home-care service company in Shinagawa Ward, Tokyo, as part of my work for FACE.

FACE's work was to make a video for Caremate, a home-visit nursing care company in Shinagawa Ward, Tokyo.

This is what a female employee in her 20s said to me when I made a video for Caremate, a home-visit care company in Shinagawa, Tokyo.


She said, "There is always someone to hold my hand and say thank you. That's the best."


It's so simple, but I think again that there is nothing more important in life than this.

I think again that there is nothing more important in life.


The ruthless leaders who continue to rock the world, are

Maybe they have never had a warm handshake and a heartfelt "thank you" from the bottom of their hearts.

and thank you from the bottom of their hearts.
