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 Âto liveÂ 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.
