|Back When We Were Happy ... and Oblivious.|
|Now, in the wake of the Tohoku Quake, looking much older and wiser.|
I am still very saddened about the situation here in Japan, and I can't help but cry when I watch the news and see my people telling their stories, mourning for their lost or dead loved ones, and watching their flattened houses be thrown away like a pile of sticks. I am not supposed to let my children see my cry, but I can't NOT feel emotional when I see this on the news.
I also can't help but feel frustrated at the fast-changing information regarding food, water, radiation, etc. In the background, the aftershocks force us to stay vigilant. I look around and count the few foreigners left, and I smile at them, glad that they decided to stay too.
In my next post, I plan to include some photos of our area.
