After reading the novel, Obasan, I step out a mile for understanding .
the disadvantages about being go to war. For my opinion, "War" doesn"t .
earn any benefits. It hurts people's souls, destroys the friendship between .
different nations and break down the whole world economic system. No one .
can survive in war.
Basically, all the characters in the novel are the war of victims. .
Originally, Naomi (the protagonist) and her family could start a new life in .
Canada tranquilly. However, they were being exiled and despised by .
Canadian government due to her family is Japanese. It is because Japanese .
armies attacked Pearl Harbor at that time and the World War II were begun .
What did they do wrong? Why was everybody despising them? .
Is it because they are Japanese and is it a reason that you can aim all the .
enmities toward them? In fact, they are all innocents and state in the same .
condition as everyone, which is being suffered from the War. .
World War II has ended for almost a half century. However, people .
don"t learn a lesson form that. During the past 50 years, "war" is happened .
everywhere. No matter it is a little one or a big one. Now, Afghanistan is at .
war. Everyday I watch the news, seeing lots of Afghanistan refugees escape from .
their homes. I"m so depressed about it. In fact, I am a peaceable person. I prefer .
to solve a problem without any violent. Therefore, my birthday wish for this year .
is going to be "no war in the world anymore". .
