The assassination of Inejiro Asanuma by 17 year-old Otoya Yamaguchi, 1960.
While Asanuma spoke from the lectern at Tokyo’s Hibiya Hall, Yamaguchi rushed onstage and ran his wakizashi through Asanuma’s abdomen, killing him. Japanese television company NHK was video recording the debate for later transmission and the tape of Asanuma’s assassination was shown many times to millions of viewers.
I suffer a ‘condition’ that feels as if I have nothing driving me; nothing to look forward to- and it’s as if there is an immovable weight anchoring me to where I was when I was once happy- when I was complete. Alas, it’s but an untouchable memory long since buried in the past, and thus I am stuck in limbo. Heartache oblivion.
Don’t remove my butt-credits please.
