But the people effected do now. It has been 3 years now since the quake and tsunami hit Japan. The world had all eyes on us. Donating money and necessities to the victims.
Now we are ignored. The people effected still living in poorly built temporary housing. Hardly able to make ends meet. No work. They make Japanese style shoes and sell them around 15 dollars a pop.
People’s lives were destroyed. They still suffer. People still in pain for all they lost. They lost their homes, their families, their friends, their pets, their belongings and now they lose their sanity in buildings that are so small and walls so thin you can hear someone peeing or taking a bath.
The children suffer so much they are searching for child therapists because there aren’t enough to handle the volume of children who are not suffering mentally for what they experienced.
Several thousand people were never found. The people are in pain and still look for their families. Wives, kids, parents, husbands, siblings probably never to be found.
The government does not enough and the world thinks everything is ok there. The cities hit by the tsunami are still waste lands and the Fukushima nuclear plant is still not under control.
Take a moment to remember the people of Tohoku. Don’t forget them so easily for the next big news story.
In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, all of the students Professor McGonagall is teaching to dance are Gryffindors. Which means, Hufflepuffs would be taught by Professor Sprout, Flitwick would be teaching the Ravenclaws, and guess who the Slytherins get to waltz with?
