Remembering the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake

I had already decided to go to Japan by the time the earthquake and tsunami struck this day last year.  My friend, who I was meant to travel with, expressed doubts about our trip and ultimately pulled out. And so I went alone, and I am so glad I did. The people I met and the friendships I started mean a lot to me. I am inspired by the resiliency and hope that I found in the stories that emerged from the tragedy and the people I was able to talk to while there.

Below is a beautiful and poignant BBC documentary about the tsunami and nuclear evacuation as experienced by children of the area.
