Hi, Whitegoat and other friends,

Sakai here.

>Hi, everyone. I'm White Goat.

  That's what parenting is all about, isn't it?

>I'd like to introduce you to this famous speech.

  I watched this one and greatly moved.
  She actually believes what she is saying!

  It reminded me of William Saroyan's My Name Is Aram,
in which the boy Aram gives a beautiful speech at his school event.
(It must have been as beautiful as the girls in the YouTube clip!)
His granpa hears through it and says afterward that it was a beautiful
speech but Aram was a fool to really believe in what he said.

I guess I'm just about as old as Aram's granpa now.

>And I'd like to introduce you to another speech.
>A two-year-old baby made it in his or her house.
>I think some people here might have watched it.
>I was very surprised. Surely babies are super.


>It's my pleasure if you like them.

>♪Happy listening♪

I'm not quite sure I liked the baby's speech as much as the one by
the twelve-year-old girl...

You see, it's quite different from the first one in that the girl
truly believed what she was saying whereas the baby doesn't!

Am I too cynical here, I wonder?

Thanks anyway, Whitegoat-san!
Tell us if you find any other good clip in YouTube or elsewhere.

Happy hunting!
