To Those Who Visited This Site for The First Time      
 
    The editor of this web site, Yuki Yoshida(Hereafter call with the subject of "I", have played what I call "The first, the second and the third stages of Life back in Japan as a top business person. On February 1st, 2009, I began, at the age of late 78, to have what I call "The fourth stage of life" in this soil of the Republic of the Philippines with some aims and reasons, which the visitors would come to find by visiting this Web from time to time.  
      As the visitors of this site see, I try to use as many and much photos concerned. This comes from my motivation of trying to make the visitors enjoy watching the photos concerned, that is, to enjoy visiting this site as a sort of what I call "the illustrated stories". (January 1st, 2018) 

 The photos below are the ones which show what I experienced at the time of being hit by the atomic bomb on August 6, 1945. Students in those day were obliged to throw away studying and work for companies in the absence of employees who were dragged into war battles. My classmates all were assigned to the streetcar and bus repairing plants, while in my case being crippled by polio, I was given office work. It was on my way through the corridore walking to my office alone after the teacher's message in the morning ceremony, that I was hit by the blast. The building collapsed andⅠ was buried under collapsed building with prayer for my helpless escape hope. However, some moment passed, I saw a deem light above my head, so that I crawled up in the debris to the the light above. I was aware I was on the top of the collapsed building, knowing myself looking down far below when I got out. I recall I cried out, "Mammy! Blood coming out!!". Later I came to be aware that I had deep cuts in my face. Well, this is a short real story of a part of a-bomb sufferers' experience. (July 21, 2018)

The upper two photos are in time of my second life in Perpetual university dormitory double rooms, and the below is the newly rented independent house in a village named BelAir 1, where I now live with a Filipino family in a different bigger house. A moment after this photo taken, we had a power cut for a few minutes, which was due to that huge earthquake in Eastern Japan.

I was then in the third stage of my life as a business consultant, maverick consultant firm, LOGITANT, Inc., meaning "Logistic and Logical Consultant. Logistic comes from my own experience of managing a trucking industry company, years later developing into what I called "Seven group companies". "Logic" came from my personal life philosophy of "logical thinking and behavior".

The fourth from left is the one depicting "My  9-minutes-speech in Las Vegus in the International conference of SAM(The Society for Advancement of Management)". I was then the president of Hiroshima branch chapter of the SAM(The Society for Advancement of Management). The award was "Material Handling Award". The attendants were some 300, business persons, university professors and the graduate students, one third each. My dear memory was "Huge standing ovation with whistles" occurred and continued even after returned to my table on the stage!!

Thus after spending my first , second and third stages of my life as a top business person, I am in this soil of the Philippines playing what I call "The fourth life". My expectation would be the 5th life in which I would call "The final fifth stage of my life for writing my final personal history".

"On November 22, 1963, John F. Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States, is assassinated"

      I, Yuuki Yoshida, the editor of this column, have a real and dramatic experiences of being faced or touched to that very moment of JFK being assassinated over the radio in the car while driving. Let me blog over here after I have finished editing "The illustrated story" of the tragedy with some 136 photos.

      I was then 32-year old, a few years after I shifted my first 14-year-longed first stage of my life as an independent technician to what I called "the second stage of my life" as a trucking industry business person. I was in a sort of guts with a brand new beautiful car, Mitsubishi Debonair, after with Toyopet Crown and Nissan Sedric, either used ones.

      In those days, when I was driving, I was used to put on the radio "AFRS(Armed Forces Radio Services) at all times for my English listening practices. I remember the program was something with music and light talks of the announcer. It happened! The program was stopped abruptly and a music with some sort of sad mood began, making me feel ???

      In a low and sad tone of the announcer's voice followed first with the term of "Our President Kennedy has been assassinated...". "Assassinated" was the word  I was then not familiar with, but a moment later he used the term "killed". I was shocked so much that I pooled over the road side and concentrated listening.  

      In 1993, at the time I entered what I call "The third stage of my life" as a business consultant, mainly dealing with the trucking industry deregulation proposals speech and writings, I made "One-month-investigation-trip in US trucking industry", I happened to meet and talk with an American trucking company owner father-and-son from Texas, whom I met in the annual convention of the American Trucking Association in Jacksonville.

      I was fortunate that that opportunity gave me a chance to visit the JFK assassination site. The moment I entered in the memorial hall, which is now named "SIX FLOOR MUSEUM", that unforgettable tone of announcer's voice came into my ears, exactly the same I could never forget! I stayed for quite a long time....Well, it seems this blogging seems to  endless, so that I put a period now.
