Title: Post Tsunami, Beacon of Rebirth Poster Project: sentiments from Japan
Post by: edzard on May 20, 2011, 12:05:50 AM
This poster project, images from Japan along with personal sentiments came down through the line from the JCNMuseum and think that this should be read & passed on, very impressive!

Quote
That the feelings evoked in the people who see these posters will become
the strength for the people working towards a new tomorrow
- this is the sole aim of this project, and our genuine hope.

Thinking of things yesterday, but did not have a chance to post

mokuto (??) is a moment of silent remembrance (literally, 'silent prayer'). This is among the words that we wish we do not ever have to use, but on the anniversary of the Great Tohoku Disaster, it is perhaps appropriate for all of us to observe a moment of silence, as we work on gardens and plants and think of Japan.

In one interview that I found particularly moving, a normal citizen, waiting in line for food and water, said 'I must do my best, because we are all depending upon each other." Those seem like words to live by.
