One year later...

3.11 marks one year after that big earthquake hit northeastern part of Japan and HUGE tsunami engulfed 20,000 Japanese people. I've seen many pictures of "now & a year ago", esp. those things which was destroyed by the earthquake & Tsunami. I can see Japanese people have been working hard to rebuild. But I watched BBC documentary on youtube today; the Japan's children of the Tsunami. This BBC program is almost one hour long, but mainly focusing the interviews on the survived children. The children talks about how they physically felt the earthquake, how they emotionally felt & have been feeling ever since, the totally changed everyday life, carrying the radiation detecter, no time frame of when they who had to evacuate from their own houses can go home (20~30 year?..)cuz of the high radiation level, to their dream when they grow up. Some wants to help people who suffers from natural disaster, radiation researcher... If you are interested, you can watch the documentary at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_AxnoNrr_8&feature=share
I keep praying for people in Japan ...

It's so sad. So many disaster last year, and sad to say, starting again already this year. Of course the one is Japan has been the worst I think. We can go on with our daily lives, but they live and relive it everyday. They are certainly in my prayers...! It takes strong people and lots of help, and hopefully will someday be able to put it in the back of their minds if that is at all possible. Hugs! Leah Ann

I also saw some of this coverage. It is so terrible that so many people can never go back to their homes and towns. They are like ghost towns left just the way they were when people left. So sad, we can not even begin to imagine the devastation.
