The East Japan Earthquake brought great sadness and despair to every part of the place where I was born and grew up. My father also became one of the victims. I would like people reading this book to think what ¬ėto live¬ô means, and give consideration to what family bonds mean to their life. Although we were victims of the earthquake, our hearts have carried on without change from before the incident. I don't want people to forget there are still so many people who are suffering in various ways despite this. I would like to express my gratitude again to the people I met at that time.
