Megumi Yokota’s 56th Birthday Ms. Sakie “I’ll Be Sure to Help You” October 5 at 5:48 AM
Megumi Yokota, who was abducted by North Korea in her first year of junior high school, celebrated her 56th birthday on The 5th. Earlier, her mother, Sakie, 84, told reporters that megumi and her husband, Tora-san, who died in June, “I want to say, ‘I’ll be sure to help you.'”
Megumi Yokota celebrated her 56th birthday on November 5 after being abducted by North Korea on her way home from school in November 43 years ago when she was in her first year of junior high school.
Sakie prepared a cake every year for Megumi’s birthday and celebrated it with her husband, but this was her first birthday without her husband.
Ms. Sakie said, “Until Megumi was gone, I bought a cake for my birthday, baked a big chicken, and spent a lively time with my family. “It’s my best time to sit around the table,” he said with his sons. On my birthday after I was gone, I always celebrated with my husband with a small cake and coffee, but I’m lonely because I don’t have a husband.”
“When this day comes, I feel really sorry for where and how I’m celebrating my birthday in North Korea, and I’m filled with the feeling, ‘Why can’t I help you?’ Every day I feel like I’m walking in the dark, and once I’m upset, I don’t feel like I can get up any more, but since the Prime Minister has been substituted, I want to expect a little bit of a birthday and have hope. Megumi and her husband’s pictures are always side by side, so I want to say, ‘I’ll be sure to help you.'”
