I wish I could play basketball again soon

(by Mr. Mizuki Kondo (8) 3rd Grade at Yamada Minami Elementary School, Yamada-cho, Iwate Prefecture, at Yamada Minami Elementary School,Yamada-cho, Iwate Prefecture)
My house was washed away, but all my family was able to evacuate safe. I enjoy playing Japanese chess with my friends at the evacuation center. I am in a basketball team, but we cannot use the gym or the school grounds where so many cars are parked. I wish we could play and exercise as much as we’d like. I’m looking forward to the day when we can play again.
