Moment of silence

3 Comments

People observe a moment of silence in a Tokyo park at 2:46 p.m., the time when the magnitude 9.0 earthquake struck off Japan's Tohoku coast in 2011. Tuesday marks the third anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami that killed thousands and set off a nuclear crisis.

My sports club did the same mokuso today. Don't know when I have felt closer to the Japanese people...It was a very moving moment. We have a long way to go, here in Japan...
