Worried about the affects of nuclear plant accidents

(by Ms. Nobuko Terashima, evacuee from Isobe area, at General Welfare Center in Souma City, Fukushima Prefecture)

My husband and I were running octopus fishery. All the house and boats were completely washed away. There is nothing left at Seriyachi area now. I am worried about the great affects when we will not be able to sell any fish or vegetable because of the events at the nuclear plants. I earnestly wish we could catch fish to supply them to the people again.

(to Ms. Mizue and Fumie Sakakibara in Sendai City)
Dear Mizue and Fumie,
I heard that you called my home in Isobe so many times worrying about me. Thank you so much. Please be relieved that I am doing fine. I’d like to talk to you when I restore my life sometime. But I am managing my life like this right now. Please take care of yourselves and live well.
