It's been a year by now. I can see that many are still struck by that horrible event that happened a year ago. But we moved on, no matter how painful it is to look back and reflect on it.
I've seen what happened on the internet after that. Scandals, fools using the Pearl Harbor and karma references, the aftershocks, the radiation, the grief, the strength to repair the nation, that sense of hopelessness etc...
Seems like we've seen it all, eh?
But even now, a year later, my yearning to go to Japan never died. My parents, especially my mom, doesn't want me to go there in fear of the radiation and cancer. Maybe they know that no matter what, I'm still seeking for a place that I can call it truly "home"?
Then I thought, why do we think of ourselves before others? The Japanese and many others are already suffering from it and they'll never know when the side effects of radiation will get to them. And yet, despite the anger and frustration of knowing so little of how bad it is, we can still see, that like us, we want to never forget, but always remember that life goes on.
I love the country that I was born in, it's home in a sense. But it's also not the home that I want to live on, so in the future, I want to let myself wander and find out where and when can I settle down. I love Japan too, because it's one of the few things that helped made me discover and learn a lot of things that we never thought about or overlooked.
We never forget events that shook our lives in this generation.
It has been a year now, my friends. Let's live our lives to the fullest no matter what.
That's allー(· ∀ ·)
