Although my house was washed away, my heart aches for those suffering with worse

(Mr.Kai Kikkawa, Wakabayashi-ward, Sendai-shi, Miyagi . Wakabayashi Elementary School ,Sendai City)
My house was flooded and not inhabitable. We have no idea when the business would resume at my work. Yet my heart aches when I think about those who are suffering worse. I am grateful that I can stay at warm place like this evacuation center. I really appreciate those who are supporting and helping us. I believe that it is necessary to restore the business activities in the central area for the reconstruction from this disaster.
