One Year Ago…

…I was crouching on the floor in my laboratory at Tohoku University, feeling the ground shake violently, watching the walls shift, shelves break and things fall down. When the earthquake finally stopped, everyone asked “大丈夫?” (Japanese for “Are you OK?”) while coming out of the places where they had taken cover. Fortunately nobody in the lab had been hurt. Everyone said they never experienced a quake like that before, yet I wouldn’t begin to understand the true extend of what had happened until the next day – and seeing the area devastated by the tsunami was a entirely different thing.

Never forget, never give up!

がんばろう東北!
