From the piles of rubble, I found a photo of my dog--he was my family

(by Mr.   Tadaharu Yoshida at Miyako Daini Junior High School, Miyako, Iwate Prefecture)
The tsunami made my house just piles of rubble. From there, I managed to find an album, which somehow keeps me going. 
A photo of my dog, Kotetsu. We've been together since he was a puppy. He is so good-looking while young, isn't he? He was my family. The tsunami took him away.  It was going to be 17th year since we'd started living together.  The tsunami took him... I regret he died like that.
