Don’t Give Up, Japan ~Voices among Japanese on twitter~

Cindy Lauper was on an airplane to Japan when the earthquake happened. Now, she decided to take all the concert she has planed.

Slash had 3 plan of performance and 2 were canceled, but he came to Japan and played even though he can play only one.

U.S. team has come to Japan under the name of Operation “Tomodachi”. This word means “Friends” in Japanese.

Some Pakistanis made and brought some meals for the suffered people. They said they did it in return for what Japan did when their country was suffered by an earthquake.

Chinese people sometimes said something unpleasant when Japanese team play any sports against Chinese team in China. But today, they give us only kindness, encouragement and sympathy.

NZ team has arrived. Yes, we sent a rescue team to NZ just before, and the suffering here might be bigger than NZ, but I know their own country is yet suffered and in need. But, they has come and said, “It is our turn.”

Afghanistan has been having a difficult time for many years. All of us knows. On March 13, the mayor of Kandahar, a city in Afghanistan, declared to donate big money to Japan.

 

They are what I have heard on TV etc. about the actions of foreign people/countries for Japan. I am so touched and moved. Thank you, World.

Here is stories among Japanese.

They are an example of how we could be as a human being in a tough situation. I hope it cheers you up a little.

Japanese people trying to stay strong

A Japanese collect some stories among Japanese people on twitter. Stories of what they saw or heard here and there since the disaster.

Don’t Give Up, Japan ~Tweet from Japan~

And, one more story….

When the huge earthquake attacked Kobe, my Grandma said, “it will be alright. Today, other part of Japan has no trouble to help Kobe different from when the world war ll ended. At that time, whole county was destroyed and staved, so nobody could come to help us to Hiroshima.”

Yes, now, so many aid teams has been coming to Japan to give Japan their hands to help Japan stand again. Even from NZ.

Their mission must be difficult and dangerous. I appreciate and respect all of them and pray that they will come back home safely and proudly.

Thank you, World.
