OK I'm sorry. It's a STUPID connection I said.
But the thing that bothers me is, someone already says its common in other countries for it to happen! Every country has living, breathing people! All because it happens in another country not Japan it's just as serious! (If a Japanese person is killed, and three other are killed in a third-world country where people are often killed, YES those three people are worth just as much) Yeah, yeah sure it's common in other countries, but all over the world people have one chance to live. Once your life ends, your chance is over too.

(P.S.-not everyone is evil.)

Well honestly, people are going to care more about someone theyre attatched to in some way more so than what's presented as a few numbers from some place we're unfamiliar with.

A life lost is unfortunate either way, but when theres some connection between you and that life, it's more important to you.

(talking in terms of this specific case)

It may have been an accident, but if the guy had any sense of honour at all, he would have stopped and apologised instead of just speeding off like that.

Yeah, I'm glad Ai is ok, it's better to be safe rather than hurt. Sad The driver should've been EXTRA careful if he were a taxi driver. Mad Oh and like dave said, he should've came back and apologised, that wouldn't be the last thing I would do.

Wow. Well, I'm glad she's ok!
But if "the man with the white hair" is in fact the taxi's driver, maybe he didn't see her, because his vision's going bad. I mean, if he's got white hair, he's probably getting on in age, and so maybe he's just losing his eyesight? Confused If that's the case though, he really shouldn't be a taxi driver anymore. No
Although, if Ai does decide to report him for bad driving (since she got the plate number) I'm worried he might get like...hate-mail and threats and stuff since he almost hit a celebrity... Sneeze
But I'm also a little curious that Ai can walk around in the streets of Tokyo without a huge entourage following her around, so it seems like it'd be hard to not see her...But well, maybe it's different for celebrities in Japan? In America, celebrities have photographers positioned outside their houses waiting for them! So I guess I just find it somewhat strange that Ai would be walking across the street alone...
Well anyways, I'm glad that no one was hurt, and I hope the driver will be taken care of before something bad happens. Sad

@ ame
I agree that it's just as sad when someone dies in some third-world country as if someone died in Japan, but it's like what ChocolateMesher said, the people here are just so shocked and such about it because they're attached to this life. It's a shame that it takes knowing the person to really care, but that's kinda how it is with most people. Also, a lot of people seem to kinda believe celebrities (and themselves Wink ) are invincible, so it's pretty shocking when something happens to them, you know? Nod

I think that's cos for most people, it's too difficult to contemplate themselves or their loved ones dying...

^ Yeah, pretty much. For most, it seems like the only way to get around that is by experiencing it. And by then, it's too late. No
It's a difficult topic, and the death of a loved one (or anyone you know really, but loved ones especially) is one of the hardest things to live through. I don't think you ever really "get over it." You just learn to live.

I agreed with you KerushiiAi-san ^^-

I think in third-world-country[or "Developing Country"] , like my country, or in Japan have no difference at all.
The difference is WHO!!! If he/she is someone you don't know and you've just listen to the News after the accident happened, it won't effect anything to you, will you?

I'm the one who will be very sad if someone I know, or especially I love, died, wherever he/she is.

PS. I feel very sad thinking about this topic.... so let's stop talking about this, shall we? Knowing that Ai-chin was alright and very lively, as she wrote this entry, make us happy, right?

I think the most important thing in this whole incident is she is OK. Accidents do happen sometimes and i am glad that she is lucky enough to escaped unhurt.

Yes, exactly. I mean, you still think it's sad and all, but you forget about it easily and such. Sneeze

Yeah, you're both right, let's stop talking about this now. The important part is that no one got hurt Wink

Yeah, I'm glad Ai isn't hurt and I completely agree with Kelsey and the rest of the statements. Nod We should stop talking about this, it's only one incident and we shouldn't have one community against one taxi driver. The most important thing is that no one got hurt.

Ai isn't the type to get angry, and I know she just wrote it in the same spontaneous way she always writes her entries. The issue would be even bigger if Ai got hurt, but she didn't which is a good thing. So let's not argue about it too much. Nod
