5 years


It's 5 years since the fatal day. The disaster which killed nearly 16,000 people with the earthquake and tsunami. More than 2500 people are still missing, more than 170,000 people still can not return to their house and hometown near Fukushima nuclear power plant. The reconstruction of towns, people's lives and many social systems doesn't progress well.

Just after the disaster I had reread Albert Camus's "La Peste", the story of the people's struggle against the evil. Now after 5 years I'm reading Saint-Exupery's "Citadelle" which seems to be curiously suited to the current social situation and my mood.
