Today is the 2nd anniversary of the Japan Earthquake. I didn’t feel I could write anything special, because many other people have written much better things. So, instead, I wanted to show people how the Tohoku Region of Japan is doing after the quake. Here are some interesting articles about the second-anniversary courtesy of the Japan Times:
- Two years on, Fukushima evacuees seek justice and a normal life
- Radiation within 80-km radius of Fukushima plant fallen by half
- Abe vows to speed up reconstruction from 3/11 disasters
- Rikuzentakata, Okuma remember disaster victims
I’ve watched some Japanese shows lately about the anniversary of the Earthquake, and it’s really sad and touching, but I feel Japanese people can explain it better than me (I don’t even live in Japan), so I decided to let them explain it. Still, if you like, you’re welcome to read my post from last year, which I still think is true.
Here’s hoping for continued recovery and healing.
P.S. The people of Tohoku still need help, not just empty prayers. If you are looking for an opportunity to help, there are still plenty.
