Example text

Soon hundreds of people had logged onto my video as I continued passing information on Twitter to people at work, walking home, or outside of Japan altogether. I kept at this for the days following, taking few breaks even to sleep as constant aftershocks would soon bring me back to my desk. Together we learned of the tsunami and the terrible damage, the towns washed away into the ocean. Together we learned of the problems with the nuclear reactors in Fukushima. Together we learned that the entire world had heard of the disaster and that planes were on their way to help those in need.

Yoshie Sherriff Abiko, Chiba Cakes My daughter, during the earthquake, was in her piano class. " All this while I was having a swinging time 30 floors above in Yebisu Garden Place Tower with my colleagues. I returned their smiles for the first minute (knowing that the building was one of the safest in Tokyo). But then I was one of the first to dive and duck promptly under my desk. The building swayed and shook wildly. I dialed Neeraja to check the family's whereabouts then switched the phone off to save them from hearing the screams in the background.

As I write this, intense aftershocks still force me out onto the street with my daughter in my arms, even though we live far from the hardest-hit areas of the country, and far more comfortably than the thousands in refugee shelters. After nightfall, my city is dark, as we all try to use the least electricity possible to save energy for more important uses. We wear coats in our homes against the cold. We sleep in our clothes in case our homes collapse and we have to run for our lives. We’ve forbidden our children from drinking tap water for fear of poisoning them with radiation.
