I felt devastating watching the tsunami situation in Japan from youtube or TV. It was really scary.
I couldn’t even imagine any what-ifs if it happened to me. A good friend of mine was visiting Japan when the earthquake happened. She sent a message on Facebook saying she experienced a little bit of earthquake when she was enjoying her coffee at a café. We just didn’t know that the big earthquake came the next day. We lost touch for a few days and I was thankful to know she and her family survived and they are safe in one piece. I have a few friends in Japan, and they are all safe. It’s really sad to think about how long would the country take to reconstruct roads, houses, schools, … to bring the nation back. Even though I’ve only visited Japan couple of times, I felt a strong tie to it. I love Japanese food. Ramen noodles are pretty much my daily lunch these days. I grew up with tons of Japanese cartoons and comics. I still love Dragonball even thought I’m too old for that now. I have used tons of gadgets and devices that were made in Japan. I feel very sad. I feel obligated to spread the words.
