Hear the voice from those affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan that hit the country on March 11, 2011. These are translations of texts mostly from twitter--I do this simply because I want to let people around the world know about what those affected are going through now, what they need, what they are saying. I want the audience to think what they could do to help in any way possible.
