When I was eight or nine, there was a very scary case of a guy who murdered four children in my community. I had no conscious memory of it, but now I'm sure that we all must have felt for these kids.

To protect people's lives and keep our children safe, we must implement public-works spending and do so proudly.

That would be positive for the economy, too.Shinzo Abe
