I had been feeling, I am kept alive, given the power to live, and in gratitude, always strongly urged myself not to be discouraged by my age, illness. But while receiving a nursing care, I encountered the unprecedented great earthquake disaster once in 1,000 years. My house was completely destroyed, and I experienced the living in a shelter and also in a frame house of a volunteer group, where I was deeply impressed by the volunteer organization, which I hope to take root in Japan, the each member¬ôs spirit, unselfishness, passion, and acts. I was naturally absorbed in volunteer¬ôs world. Five hundred thousand volunteers are said to have rushed to the tragic scene of the Great East Japan Earthquake. How greatly they encouraged and cheered up the victims who were lost in their grief. Now I tell the story of the reconstruction, I can¬ôt do without telling their humanity and sense of mission. I drove a pen recalling the fabric of human relationships, including my experiences.
