Left with Nothing After the Quake It's the Little Things that Matter Most

(by Ms. Kinuko Mitsui, evacuee at the Goichi District Community Center, Massaki-cho, Ofunato, Iwate Prefecture)
We’re almost out of daily necessities. It’s the little things. Like, I could really use some nail clippers, and my eyeglasses are broken. These things seem so mundane that saying them out loud feels extravagant. Especially when TV and newspapers are filled with reports that many have yet to receive any relief at all. Life is so uncertain now. I hope everyone can get the help they need to survive. We all need your help.
