These are not my own thoughts, but in fact the thoughts of others. Though I do not do this type of post much, I wanted to share the thoughts and appreciation of other fans regarding the leave of Morning Musume's Michishige Sayumi. Please respect the opinions of the original writers, thank you.
*Regarding this specific type of post, I want to express that I enjoy delivering the messages of the Readers or fans of various groups here if given the permission or asked to add them to the blog. It gives a more diverse perspective to a certain event, situation or thought and allows for you read something that is not written from my point of view. Again, diversity - it is good! Thank you for reading~
**I want to thank both Calli and Mendez for allowing me to create this post after I asked if I could. I was moved by their appreciative pieces regarding Sayumi's graduation, and I truly wanted to share them with you all! So once again, thank you to them both!
This post is a little later than planned due to assignments and Christmas shopping, but aside from the that, I have no excuse...
So a few days ago before and also when Michishige Sayumi graduated, I was on Facebook and found two posts of Appreciation for Morning Musume '14's former Leader and the last standing 6th generation member. Both of the posts really touched me and, of course, made me bawl like the emotional wreck I truly am. The two posts I saw are by friends of mine, so I asked them if I could share their beautiful posts of Appreciation here on my blog for others to see to show my lovely readers what other fans have to say about Morning Musume's 8th leader.
This post will be focused on what both Calli and Mendez have said, rather than what I say. I really appreciate that they both have allowed me to share these Appreciation posts with us all, and to know that others were writing such beautiful words towards Michishige Sayumi before or after her graduation really made me emotional and happy; she was loved by many, and on her graduation day it showed, and so I share with you two posts from two fans who loved her dearly.
So without further ado, please read on and take in both messages from Mendez and Calli and see if you identify with their feelings, too.
