北国の街。
何度か遭遇した大きなビル、大きな広場。
どうやら国の施設らしい。

しかし、数年前の夏、そのビルは突然爆破された。
犯人は街を出て郊外の島へ向かい、そのビルでの事件を口実に人々を集めて襲った。

事件のことは当初から知っていたが、実際の場所については無知だった。
閑静な場所での過去の出来事を知り、私は色々と考えた。

In the city in the northern country.
I saw a large building and a large square sometimes.
They must have been facilities of the nation.

On a summer day some years ago the building was suddenly bombed.
The criminal left the city and went to an island in the suburbs.
Then he gathered people on the plea of the bombing and attacked them.

I did know about these cases since they were reported as the breaking news, but I was ignorant of the scenes.
The past incident in the peaceful place gave me many subjects to consider.
