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.

No cake for birthday at shelter, but other evacuee drew a birthday cake as a present
(by Ms. Emi Kimura, Kaito and Suzuka, evacuees at Kaisen-kaku, Onagawa, Oga-gun, Miyagi Prefecture)
We had made a reservation of birthday cake for him, but the cake shop was not open. So we celebrated his birthday with nothing, let alone cake.
People at the evacuation center gave him a picture of birthday cake as a present.
