15 years since the earthquake / 震災から15年


Today is the memorial day of the earthquake I was suffered from with my family 15 years ago. I was at my parents’ house in Nishinomiya, Hyogo, when the great earthquake struck the Kobe area. I can’t forget what went on, what I saw, what I did, and what I was helped at that time.

At the same time, I can’t help feeling deep sympathy with people in Haiti who are just now struggling against the natural disaster. Although what I can do for them is very limited, I sent a little amount of donations to American Red Cross, Doctors without Borders, and some of similar organizations in charge of rescuing and supporting the survivors.
