Tsuneko Sasamoto and Takeji Muno are 101-year-old journalists.

Sasamoto has been writing about accomplished people both famous and unknown. Her writings always reflect ever-changing times, vividly depicting women during and after WWII. Muno, an extraordinary journalist, resigned the newspaper on the day Japan lost the war out of remorse for writing pro-war articles. He left Tokyo for his hometown then founded Weekly Torch to keep his journalism alive. At 101 Sasamoto claims her life is ongoing. Muno says he’s at the pinnacle of his life. We have a lot to learn from their optimism.
