In Minamisouma City, some elderly people are left behind and isolated, even in hospitals. The situation is the same to a big hospital. Less than 10 people are taking care of as many as 100 patients!

Also in the aftermath of the Kobe earthquake, they (developmentally disabled children) were isolated. It is not easy to let the others know about their visual/audio disabilities. I am sure their parents are having a hard time, too. Please remember to talk to them from time to time.

The earthquake and tsunami inflicted enormous damage on Fukushima Prefecture but the damage caused by the nuclear accident in Fukushima is more serious. I’ll say it as many times as I have to. A nuclear accident is a man-made disaster. The government must take it upon itself to bring foods, heating oil, and drugs to Hamadori, Fukushima Prefecture, as soon as possible. We are the victims in every way! Is the government leaving us to die? Bullshit!

I will make every effort not to be influenced by harmful rumors and not to let the memory of the disaster fade away. Fund-raising activities are actively promoted on the streets, but I wonder how many people will be doing this a year from now. It is the duty of the people, like me, not affected by the disaster to recognize that there is no end to the pain of those afflicted by the disaster even after everything goes back to normal.
Thank you for going to my hometown where I grew up for support!! Now I am helpless but I’d like to be a person like Mr. Horie. He would just go and offer help if anybody anywhere in Japan was crying for help.

Mental care is effective in preventing acute cardiac insufficiency and sudden death. Try to reduce your stress as much as possible by chatting and exchanging information with people around you at shelters. It’s essential to maintain the spirit of mutual help. Make sure nobody is isolated.
