Kawai Rio, 29, who is involved in social media marketing, said:
“My heart hurts so much that I don’t want to believe it. I want to prevent this from happening again.”
Misato Yamada, who has lived in Singapore for eight years, told CNA that she was “silent” when she saw the video clip of the attack.
A 44-year-old woman who was married to a Singaporean and had a 3-year-old daughter said, “I noticed two shootings. I thought Japan was a safe country, just like Singapore.” It really happened in Japan. of? “
Mr Yamada disagreed with all of Abe’s policies and political directions, but said he “can’t really forgive” the man who shot him.
“My first reaction is that it’s so sad. Then why did this happen? What is the reason?”
A mother living in Japan in her 70s sent a message after the attack.
“She also can’t agree with Abe’s political direction … but for whatever reason you shouldn’t kill others. She feels very sad, especially for Japan. I feel sad, “she added.
“We are a safe country, a high-tech country … what are the good points of Japan?”
Yamada said he was afraid that a similar incident would occur after he learned that the man who shot Abe might have used a homemade gun.
“Maybe stupid people try to do the same, and the same thing happens, and we can no longer stay in a safe country. So what is our morality?”
