One Year Later

Today marks one year after last year’s disaster in Japan. At that time, I was living in Saitama prefecture, just north of Tōkyō. Although the earthquake was powerful there as well, some 230 miles from the epicenter, our lives were in no way immediately endangered by the resulting tsunami and nuclear crisis. The memories of that day are still vivid and painful, and writing about them has been difficult. In retrospect, however, my experience seems trivial in comparison to that of the thousands who lost their families, homes, and livelihoods.

Today, please take a moment to think of the people of Tōhoku and consider supporting one of the following relief efforts:

Thank you all for your support. It means the world to me and my friends in Japan.
