Right now, there are many articles circulating the web about the anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake and its subsequent tsunami that took over 15,000 lives. I preferred Mainichi Shinbun‘s (Every Day Newspaper) short article so far (http://mainichi.jp/english/english/newsselect/news/20140311p2g00m0dm034000c.html).
But I’m not here to recap this sad marker in Japan’s history.
There’s still a lot of work to be done and a lot of help to be given. Thousands have been displaced by this event from 3 years ago. We should remember to be human and help those that are in need.
