Just wanted to say my thoughts are with those who lost their families from the Great Eastern Earthquake and the Tohoku region which is still in recovery. I’m sure many of you remember exactly where you were, what exactly you were doing at that moment in time – I do.
My thoughts are with the families who lost their loved ones and homes to the 3/11 earthquake and tsunami, as well as the Tohoku region as a whole. I was in Akita when it happened. We were very lucky. The earthquake strength was only about a 5 for us and there was no major damage, but I still remember how we lost power for a week in my area.
