Well he was one of the fortunate ones who didn't lose his children, parents or loved ones on 11/3.

Guy lost his home, his hometown and almost everything he owned. Why do you feel the need to throw shade on him?

Good story, well written. The kind of story that helps you to understand the ongoing legacy of this disaster, away from the terrible statistics.

Thousands of people lost loved ones. Children lost their parents or their school friends. Some even lost all of their family members. Hundreds of thousands lost their homes and all their. belongings.

160,000 were evacuated from the nuclear zone. He still has his family so more fortunate than many others.

I'm not "throwing shade" on his experience but seeing in perspective to the lost by others.

If after such terrible disasters I still had my loved ones I too would feel fortunate and grateful.

Rather presumptuous of you to assume Mr Ouchi doesn't.
