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.
Evacuees in the gymnasium of Shizugawa Elementary School in Minamisanriku, Miyagi Prefecture, pose for a group shot on April 19, 2011, ahead of a round of group evacuations from the town scheduled for April 21. Around 60 of the 152 evacuees were set to leave, after having spent a month and a half sharing times of both joy and sorrow with the others at the school. Wishing each other well and wondering when they will be able to return, the evacuees were reluctant about parting ways. (Mainichi)
