Ms. WENDY JIANG/ member of The KITTY Youth Club at Parents’ Association for Persons with Intellectual Disability, Taipei City

Q: What did you think when you hear the attack in Japan at the first moment?
A: I felt like it sounded so unexpected.
Why would Japan get this incident,
which has killed our innocent persons with intellectual disabilities?
Although they did not live so conveniently,
they could still have chance to cheer up.
Q: The suspect said that he wanted to let all persons with disabilities disappear.
What do you think?
A: The suspect is not a person with intellectual disabilities,
how could he make decisions of living or not for persons with disabilities?
Q: Because he thought they didn’t live happily.
A: How could they not live happily?
He was not even on the behalf of persons with intellectual disabilities,
how could he get them killed?
Q: Do you have any word for the suspect?
A: Please do not kill innocent persons with disabilities anymore.
Q: Do you have any word for those who are still in hospital?
A: Please take good care of themselves.
And then keep taking care of other persons with disabilities.
No more chances for other persons with disabilities will be getting hurt.
Q: Do you have any word for the victims who were dead?
A: Be happy angels in the heaven.
Although they were very uncomfortable (during the event),
but (I hope them) let it go.
Be happy angels on the above,
take care of persons with intellectual disabilities who are still alive,
and never let this incident happen again.
