8 months

8 months after the disaster of 3.11

the death toll : 15,836
missing : 3,652
The local police are still trying to find the missing people, mostly in and off shore.

the evacuee from the area around Fukushima nuke plant : 140,000

I still can not read these information with calm. Too cruel to endure but we have to.

Because of a pile of recent terrible news the information about the damage from the 3.11 disaster is not so noticeable on newspaper or internet lately. But it still exist severely, and its direct and indirect influences spread all over Japan, in various fields.

It's almost unbelievable that our life has not changed much after such massive national dosaster, but maybe it's changing beneath the surface, and our feeling too. I hope they'll change better. And now, not only in Japan, we have so many cruel disasters all over the world. The flood in Thailand, earthquakes in Turkey. We cannot help it about the natural disaster, still we must have something we can do for each other, we have to find out how.
