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.

People at shelter are very kind and I am grateful
(by Takako Yamada, an evacuee at the Tagajyo Culture Center, Tagajyo, Miyagi Prefecture) To my sister, Eiko Iwamoto, my uncle's daughter, Sako, and Kazuko. I am fine. So don't worry. I got a pair of socks from someone I don't even know. I couldn't bring anything with me, but people here are very kind and I feel grateful for that. Ms. Takako Yamada
