It’s been six years since the Great East Japan Earthquake.
I will be spending the day with a gratitude
for being together with someone special,
for morning, afternoon and evening,
which should never be taken for granted
although they seem to be so natural.
I remember that Princess Michiko said to the victims of the disaster,
holding their hands,
“Thank you for surviving.”
I am struck by this story as this tells me how being alive means.
Compared to those who are brave and still fighting with hardships,
I am nothing.
But I live today with my sincere gratitude.
