Please take a look at this person. Here he is, standing out in front of the station which is quite far from his home. He woke up around 6:00 a.m. to go to this station to distribute flyers to promote an English conversation school which he owns and operates. But I think there is another more important reason that he makes all this effort. In his eyes and mind and I hope in the eyes and minds of those who have the opportunity to receive one of his school’s flyers, he is offering everyone who passes an excellent opportunity to acquire good English conversation skill and to practice it even if only briefly. We often hear in Japan the words ” There are no chances to speak English in Japan.” This person has offered that chance to people tens of thousands of times. So, when he says to you “Good Morning”, please realize that he has offered you that elusive chance and reply by saying “Good Morning”. If you do that, from that point in time your world will begin to grow larger. I also assure you that you will feel much better after saying it.
Please cherish the opportunity that receiving his flyer has brought you. The young women in the picture who was in a hurry was still able to take one of his flyers. Perhaps she thought it might be a good opportunity! ( Read about it in Japanese.)
