2011 Tōhoku Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan

I’d like to extend my sympathy to all those in Japan who are struggling because of the 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster. I think the whole world has been impressed by the courage and unity displayed by these people throughout this ordeal. I have spoken to friends who live in Sendai within the Tōhoku Region and they remain positive despite the devastation that surrounds them. I’ve also spoken to friends living on the outskirts of Tokyo and while they’re concerned about the obvious negative environmental and economic impacts on Japan, they also appear optimistic.
