Being parents but civil servants, they don't have time with their son

(by Ms. Utako Kamiyama, an evacuee at Senjuin, Kamaishi, Iwate Prefecture)
It’s just my grandson and I. His parents are civil servants. They’ve been stuck at work without much personal time. We’ve seen them two or three times, but no time for skinship. Children need love. When he cries, it is all I can do to tell him that mama and papa are doing their best so he must too. There’s nothing that can be done. It’s their job.
