A crow wing and the footsteps

 Pain and suffering are always inevitable for a large intelligence and a deep heart. The really great men must, I think, have great sadness on earth.”

― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, CRIME AND PUNISHMENT

I wanted to eat sweets today. In my daily life, I rarely take in sugar even cooking, and I hardly want to eat sweets, but it seems that today was such a day.

I brought Mont blanc and cream puffs at a nearby cake shop. On my way home, there was a crow wing falling on the ground, sticking to the rain-wet street.

A Wet black feather.

I received today's sign.

Black is the color of death.

And, a color with all possibilities.

There was certain study shows that the very negative topic of thinking about death increases the well-being of life.  To think about what can we do, what we want to do, and what we want to prioritize the resources of the most precious time that money cannot buy, until the end of death, that is naturally important to make up mind so.  It is quite natural in that it can be clarified.

The way of dying, is probably old is the best, ideal for me. It is no exaggeration to say that I maintain my health for that reason.  In my aspirations, my theme of how to die beautifully was into it in me as the best for one of those days. 

Thinking about the death penalty may also help reflect the way of thinking. As a result, it may lead to the improvement of the ethical and moral values ​​of society as a whole. At present, only five industrialized countries - including Japan and the United States - actively carry out executions and I am not sure about the exact number but 140 nations more or less had abolished capital punishment.

Supposed, I was the mother whose child was killed. If I were to be in this position, I would ponder the unimaginable feelings of how I could convince myself, I would go to defeat the murderer by myself, I would also see the darkness of my child, self-harm to melt in. In fact, before the Meiji Restoration, if you declared openly that you would go to kill them in retaliation, so called ‘’katakiuchi’’ or ''adauchi'' in Japanese, was legal, was not so long ago. Of course, I know this isn't possible under current law, plus it's self-serving attitude, complacency, and egoistic practice, and it's not a peaceful solution. you don't have to be a revengeful feeling meanwhile If you suffer, revenge is life, that is kind of honest gory bits of feelings. Now that I can't slay the enemy directly, I think there is room to think about how to manage revenge.

Often, some argue that friends and families of victims should deserve justice to be given execution and closure. Most of these people feel that the death penalty is the only way to compensate them for their loss. Allowing murderers to live must be an insult to them and the memories of their loved ones. However, can the feeling of loss of a loved one be compensated for by execution? Whether execution can be the right process and direction for the bereaved family - unfortunately an area beyond my imagination at this point -, and there must be tremendous amount of mental labor. However, the death penalty cannot be said to be yes.

The death penalty would be an appropriate punishment for such a terrible crime of ruthlessly malicious murder. the most of friends and families of victims hope for execution, but about the prison officer who would have to do it.  I think that some measures have been taken to reduce an undue psychological burden. many people don't feel  comfortable making critical executions like this on others, even so  a stressful situation for many. 

If imposing the death penalty is a long and expensive process and is not the only way to control murder, that is not appropriate in all. To abolish capital punishment reduces the chances of being punished for crimes that innocent people have not committed. There is always the possibility that innocent people will put to death for crimes they did not commit.

Returning to the universal belief of mine that suffering and sadness are not only about one person, but that the people around you who love you want to be happy should take in it.

If the execution is abolished, I think the price of those who survived with various complex emotions should be supported.

it is said ,presently, the light can be moving out of darkness around black hole


The main takeaway for me, who aims for a light world view and beautiful landscape that goes beyond sadness and despair, I don't think the execution will end my emotions.

And, a crow came to my balcony where it rained.

Next steps and new levels for respect. crows - with their footsteps

I might rewatch Dead Man Walking next week.
