Two weeks ago, the police rescued the frightened bird from a roof in a Tokyo suburb. Without any tag or tracking device, the police had no way to discover where Yosuke lived, and decided to leave him in a veterinary hospital for safekeeping.
Yosuke may have kept mum with the cops, but as soon as he met a veterinarian at the hospital, he was ready to open up. "I'm Mr. Yosuke Nakamura," he said as introduction – followed by his full home address.
"We checked the address, and what do you know, a Nakamura family really lived there. So we told them we've found Yosuke."
The Nakamuras were relieved that Yosuke had remembered the lesson they had taught him, but it seems he had some suspicions about opening up to the police. "I tried to be friendly and talked to him, but he completely ignored me," said Uemura.
On May 5th, 700,000 students from all over Canada came together for a special occasion: Music Monday, a four-year-old celebration of music education across the country created by the coalition for music education in Canada.
All day long, students at Canadian schools jammed on guitars, and enjoyed special performances from guest musicians.
At 12 noon, CST, students in schools all across the nation broke into tune for a mass performance of the Elton John tune, 'Your Song,' which had been specially selected for the occasion.
The festivities were intended as a way to show the students the joys of playing and performing music. And it sure sounds like it did the trick, as far as the kids are concerned. As one of them said, "Music can be really emotional and also make you happy and spiritual at the same time."
