Being a nurse, I am grateful I can be useful in the time like this

(by Ms. Shigeko Hirayama,  45 years old, Nurse , Ofunato-cho, Ofunato-shi, Iwate Pref. (Ofunato-shi, Ofunato Junior High School gymnasium)
I am checking the blood pressure for the people at the evacuation center, and assist the doctors who visit here. I suffered a great loss, but I am grateful that I can be useful at the time of disaster like this. I have a daughter who will start a senior high school life, and a son junior high school. They’ve started to show the sign of exhaustion; that worries me. I hope that we will be able to move to some place so that we can live in better condition.
