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.

House was burnt down, everything is gone
(by Ms. Ritsu Yamazaki, an evacuee at Yamada High School, Yamada-chyo, Iwate prefecture) My house was burnt down. Everything is gone. Money, also. No idea what to do now. I'm cornered. Chouko (daughter) in Miyako city, please contact me if you're alright.
