While my friend is going back and help her local evacuees who are suffering, I 'm eating normally although we have this nuke plant confusion.
Am I feeling guilty ? To be honest with you, yes a bit, but I am trying to be grateful that we have food here. Whenever, these disaster happens and I am doing fine, I remember my childhood.
My mother used to say " Eat them all. Finish your plate. Think about those people who cannot eat ! " I didn't talk back to her ( it causes her hysteria ), but in my mind I thought ' Well, If I really think about those people, I cannot eat ! How can you eat when you can imagine them !? '
Yes, at dinner table, if you could think about them, you cannot really eat, don't you think ? I feel like Simone Weil then.
However, I am weak against hunger and I cannot do ' Hunger Strike '.
Therefore, while I eat, I concentrate on eating and appreciate that the food is given and I am eating. And the best thing I can do is trying to help in some possible ways.
