Thank You Again
It's already been 5 days since the earthquake. I haven't felt like doing anything in the meanwhile. Fortunately my area has been little affected. A part of the town was only flooded by the small-scale tsunami. I am really thankful that we are all safe and didn't lose any of our friends or relatives. But the suffering of those affected is still lingering. Many of them haven't been able to see their children or parents yet. More than 10,000 people are still missing. My heart is wrenching thinking about it. At the evacuation areas, all sorts of stuff come short, food, water, heating, fuel, lines of communication, transportation for essentials. Besides we are intimidated by possibility of nuclear explosions. We are going through such a severe ordeal that we've never had before. However, everyone in Japan started stepping forward to overcome it. The relief teams from abroad arrived in Japan. I saw many people outside of Japan considering donation for Japan in all kinds of ways. I was very touched to tears. All Japanese and foreigners who live in Japan know that everyone around world is praying for them. It has absolutely become a big big power to bear up under this disaster. They really appreciate it.
