At January 25, I went to the new year lecture of the World Conference of Religions for Peace Japan (WCRP Japan). I am not a member of the WCRP. This is an official trip as a research fellow of the Jodo Shinshu Studies and Research Center.
When a large earthquake occurs, religious facilities can be shelters. It is severe that you live in disaster area. It is more severe for people with disabilities. The lecture was that what we should do to support people with disabilities in disaster area.
At a party after the lecture, Mr. Yasushi Akashi, Former the U.N. Assistant Secretary General, made a speech. According to his speech, he is critical of President Donald Trump of the U.S.A.
