Presidential Debate Round1
Presidential debate seems to have nothing to do with GTS nor Japanese language/culture. Yet, we all must be responsible for the future generations. According to CBS poll, 51% thought Obama-san performed the better job. There was one interesting conversation exchange about "a mother" who lost her son in Iraq (so about 2 different mothers). McCain quoted as "the mother had told him not to make her son's death meaningless/ wasteful /useless...." Obama quoted as "the mother had told him not to create the similar mothers like her again..." In this exchange, I saw the parallel of "Remember Pearl Harbor" mentality vs. "No More Hiroshima/Nagasaki" mentality. GTS sincerely hopes that every student of GTS' will follow what's going on in the U.S. as well as what's going on in Japanese language/culture class! Both are really IMPORTANT!!
