It's been too difficult to write because of what has happened. It hurts to think of the people and history lost in the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami that have destroyed my beloved Minamisoma.
I've tried contacting my host family but cannot find them. I pray they're in a shelter somewhere.
It hurts when I think of all the nice people I met in Minamisoma. I wonder what their lives are like now. I often wonder, "what happened to ________?" It breaks my heart.
The pictures are almost too much to bear......
My heart grew during the trip
I will not forget
