About the Quake
Posted by Ryusui on March 18, 2011
Japan was struck by the largest earthquake and tsunami on March 11th, 2011.
All of bbb members living in Japan are safe now. But there are still lots of quakes in Japan every day and the nuclear plant is in one of the most dangerous conditions in the world history.
Although Japanese society is greatly affected by the quake in all senses, people are modest, enduring and thoughtful even in this ultimate emergency. Now I'm proud of the fact that I am a Japanese.
We are gradually getting back little by little.
The Sun will rise again to heal the world.
Japan never gives up.
