The Editor's memo for this day!
Thursday, May 3, 2018
Back in Hiroshima, Japan, "The Annual Flower Festival" began and continue for three days, while here in the Philippines has similar ones, so that I selected two-line of photos each below. Hope my web visitors would enjoy. To my eyes, the Philippines festivals seem far brighter than my home country costumes. To my eyes, the latter is far much westernized with color and color and behaviors!! Ha, ha.

This column is for editing what I call "the illustrated stories" with photos related with the events and news, so that the visitors could enjoy the stories in a visual ways. The former, "today@VOA" deals with historical events with the exception of week-ends, and the latter with stories who lived and dead with more than a hundred years old of his or her lives. My interest in the latter one comes from my strong will of living more than a hundred of years trying to make it with a thought of my mother who lived until 102, or my personal wish and will to live a life of the so-called "The longest lived Hibakusha(A-bomb survivor) with my thought of "Ms. Elbina Deans, the longest-lived suruvivor of the Titanic", and another target of a 119-year-old Filipina, Puerto Princesa, with the title of oldest living person in the Guinness Book of World Records.

|On This Day in American History
On May 2, 1863, Confederate troops won an unlikely victory during the Battle of Chancellorsville in the American Civil War, despite being outnumbered 2-1, by out-maneuvering their Union foes. The victory came at a huge cost though, as Confederate General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson was accidentally wounded by fire from his own soldiers. Jackson’s arm was amputated, and he died days later from pneumonia.

I am fond of English language. My history of English language studying dates back when I was in night-time high school. I was obliged to give up higher education because of my father's early death right after the Hiroshima atomic bomb drop.
