17 years from that. Hmmm. Today is January 17th here. Back then, I knew it was a tragic disaster, but didn't do anything practical to support victims.
I was travelling and worried about my family, but they were in Tokyo, so they were safe. Then.... kept watching news, but didn't do anything.
Sigh. It was totally somebodyelse's disaster to me. I regret it. Last March, I did feel the quake here in Tokyo and because of that, I could actually relate myself to the disaster.
Will try to do things even if it is small support Tohoku region this time.
