JS was nominated by her friends to take up the Ice Bucket Challenge. I am not against this for charity purpose, but somehow I find this youngster, tweens and the mass had somehow taken it to a wrong direction without understanding the true purpose. The youngsters especially these primary school kids thought it’s something fun and cool to do. They are mere trend followers without knowing the true meaning and purpose for this cause. Anyhow, I told her what ALS is about and so as why they have this Ice Bucket Challenge
Here’s the link to the video she recorded and edited all by herself .
A day after she posted the Ice Bucket Challenge video, I was searching for Jdrama to watch. Such a coincident that I stumbled on a drama series that is based on ALS patient. I just have this feeling that someone , somehow is trying through other channels to raise awareness about ALS.
Boku no Ita Jikan 僕のいた時間 (The Hours of My Life) is really a heart wrenching drama showing the challenging path an ALS patient is going through. But here it’s overcome with unconditional love from family, friends and love one. I cried bucket watching it and don’t mind watching again and again. The soundtrack is very nice too. JS watched the first two episode with me and from the drama, she can at least grasps what ALS really means.
